Richard Edwin Allison of Plano, Texas, passed away on April 2, 2024, at the age of 83.

He was born in Columbus, Ohio on November 22, 1940, to Edwin Martin Allison and Josephine Naomi Allison. He graduated from North High School in 1958. He married his high-school sweetheart, Sue Ann Bauer, on St. Patrick’s Day in 1962. They were blessed with two children, Jeffrey Edwin, and Karin Sue.

Upon receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The Ohio State University where he was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, Richard was recruited as an artist by Hallmark Cards, embarking on his successful creative career in the social expression industry. Over the years, he held management positions in marketing, creative, and product development roles in a variety of such companies including Gibson Greeting Cards, CPS Industries, Marcel Schurman Co., Antioch Publishing Co., and was a Vice President of Creative at Carlton Cards.

Richard was involved in both community and church activities. He was one of the first soccer coaches for the children in their community and coached both of his children’s teams. He enjoyed the sport so much that he joined a soccer team himself. He was a past member of the Kiwanis Club and a former volunteer at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum. He served as a member of the Plano Public Art Commission and several of their commissioned public art sculptures can be seen at the Plano Fire Station One and the Plano Animal Shelter. Richard was also an Elder in the Presbyterian church, and was a current deacon at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church.

In the years after his retirement, he found pleasure working at Market Street in Plano, where he enjoyed his fellow workers and talking with customers. He would refer to his longtime customers as “my customers.”

Richard had many varied interests. Genealogy was one of his favorite hobbies where he pursued the family connection to Scotland, culminating in a family trip to Scotland. He also enjoyed photography, traveling, family activities, gardening and working on his pond.

Another lifelong passion of Richard’s starting in his teenage years was cars – vintage, exotic, and contemporary – all cars. He read car magazines, watched car racing, went to car shows and races. A real highlight for him was attending an Indianapolis 500 race. In later years he took to photographing exotic cars and would strike up in-depth conversations with their owners.  

Richard is survived by Sue, his wife of 62 years, as well as his son Jeffrey Allison and his daughter Karin Allison White (husband, John White) and their son Andrew Michael White, who fondly called his grandfather G-Dad. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Robert Gary Allison, and his sister Shirley Ann Allison.

A memorial service will be held at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church in Richardson, Texas at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 26. It will be livestreamed at

Donations in Richard’s memory can be made to Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church and to the American Heart Association. Online condolences to the family can be made at

In memory of Jason Aaron Brown, a beloved husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend, who departed from this world due to a tragic hit-and-run incident on Monday evening, April 8th, 2024. He passed away on Saturday evening, April 13th, after a valiant fight. Jason's life was cut short while he was doing what he loved - going for a run. He will always be remembered for his sweet smile, warm eyes, and unwavering determination. He truly had a heart of gold and loved deeply, illuminating the lives of those around him with his vibrant spirit and genuine love for life. His dedication to everything he pursued was genuinely admirable, and his cherished wife, Tiffany, his devoted family, and countless friends will feel his absence deeply.

Tiffany, his beloved wife and soulmate, lovingly remembers Jason as the love and light of her life, her husband, and her best friend. When they started dating, they shared an intense connection and hated being apart from each other. After seven years of dating, they married early in the Covid years. She describes their ten years together as the best of her life. His passing has left an indescribable pain in her heart. 

Jason is survived by his loving wife, Tiffany Brown; his mother, Leah Maglio, and stepfather, John Maglio; his father, Homer Brown, and stepmother, Melinda Hunt; his sister, Mia Luna, and brother-in-law Ricky Luna; and his nephews, Alex Luna and Josh Luna. In their grief, may they find solace in the memories of Jason's love and his impact on so many lives.

Let us honor Jason's memory by embracing life with the same vigor and passion that he did. May his legacy serve as a reminder to cherish every moment and love fiercely, for life is too short.

Rest in peace, Jason; you will be missed beyond words.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your local animal shelter.

John Daniel Ingle, Jr., 79, of Richardson, TX passed away peacefully at his home on December 14, 2023, in the company of his loved ones after a long illness. He was born in Oklahoma City, OK on October 8, 1944 to John Ingle, Sr., and Kittie Mae Stockett Ingle.

Known as “Johnny” during childhood, he enjoyed playing numerous rounds of golf from the young age of ten.  He met his future wife, Susan Pickering, when they were in 5th grade(!), and they grew up attending Westminster Presbyterian Church and Harding High School together in OKC.  John attended Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri for a year and then joined Susan at the University of Oklahoma where he was a Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity member.

After receiving their degrees from OU, John and Susan were married on August 13, 1965. They were blessed with two children, Carolyn and Christopher, who in turn blessed them with five beautiful granddaughters. A year before his death, John also had the special pleasure of welcoming and holding his great grandson.

John’s 42-year career as a portfolio manager began after he received his BBA from the University of Oklahoma and his MBA from the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Finance, starting with Continental Bank & Trust in Chicago and culminating with Smith Group Asset Management in Dallas.  In between, he helped many clients find financial security through his positions of increasing responsibility at First National Bank & Trust in Oklahoma City, Trust Company of Texas, Bank of America in Dallas, and others before his retirement.  Along the way, he enjoyed giving clients peace of mind and was known for mentoring many younger colleagues.

John and Susan have been longtime members of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church in Richardson, Texas, where John’s financial background made him a valued servant in many capacities, including offering his gifts as a deacon, an elder, and a member of the finance committee where he negotiated the financing that led to the church’s new building.

He is joyfully remembered for his devotion to Pilgrimage (formerly Cursillo) where he served as Moderator and in many other capacities, most often as a Table Cha where his servant heart and uncharacteristic playfulness made him a favorite. His faith was strong, his favorite scripture being Isaiah 43:1, “I have called you by name; You are Mine,” expressing God’s personal, loving relationship.

Following the loss of his mother, John started his own consoling ministry, offering solace to grieving family, friends, and even strangers by sending them comforting words from ‘Chapter 4’ in the book When Christ Comes by Max Lucado. For more than two decades, hundreds found comfort thanks to John’s kind remembrance.

After John’s retirement in 2009, he enjoyed spending more time with his growing family and would also spend hours happily working in his yard, volunteering with Network of Community Ministries, and delivering Meals on Wheels.  He and Susan rarely missed an OU football game (Boomer Sooner!), snow-skied annually in Colorado, and made many memorable trips to Europe with their travel group friends.

John is survived by his wife of 58 years, Susan, of Richardson, TX; daughter Carolyn (Chris) Dierks of Dallas, TX, son Chris (Susan) Ingle of Marion, MA; five granddaughters, Meredith (Will) Bramblett of Richardson, TX, Megan (Jake) Arredondo of Kingsville, TX, Emily Dierks of Norman, OK, and Katie and Stella Ingle of Marion, MA; and great grandson Brooks Bramblett of Richardson, TX; brother Steve (Barbara) of Bixby, OK, and sister Jane Ingle McCord of Houston, TX and many nephews, nieces, and cousins.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his newborn grandson, Oliver Jack Ingle.

A service to celebrate John’s life will be held at 11am on Saturday, January 20, 2024, at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, 3901 North Star Road, Richardson, TX, 75082. 

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests an alternative donation to Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, North Texas Presbyterian Pilgrimage, or Alzheimer’s Association.
