Darren "Red" Allen

April 9, 1965 — September 22, 2022


Darren Jay Allen (Red), 57, of Waldron, Arkansas, passed away on September 22, 2022.

Darren was born on April 9, 1965 to Joan E. Allen in Upland, California. After Darren graduated from high school, he pursued a career in heating and air conditioning. In 1994, Darren and Mary Beth Imperiali, his soulmate, moved to Waldron, Arkansas, where they spent the rest of their lives. Red had one stepson, Travis Imperiali (Ashley), and he loved the kids, Summer and Travin.

Red worked for Vaughn's Heating and Air for years. He loved music, cars (specifically hot rods and muscle cars), and hanging with friends. Red also enjoyed a good laugh and had mastered the art of making others laugh. He had a special place in his heart for animals and cherished his dogs.

Darren was preceded in death by Joan E. Allen, mother; Bob Van Hyning, uncle; and Mary Beth Imperiali. Darren is survived by Michael (Barbara) Allen, brother; Jill Pesante, aunt; Sonya Landry, cousin; Danielle Kanavy, cousin; Travis, Ashley, Summer, and Travin Imperiali; as well as extended family and a host of friends.

A memorial service will be held at Square Rock Cemetery on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at 10:00 am. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to a local animal shelter, given Red's love of animals.
