Reflections of his life: "God's finger touched him and he slept."
On Friday, Feb. Feb. 7, 2014, our beloved Allen Leon Blaylock, Jr. had a 6 a.m. "tee time" to meet the Master. Being an avid golfer, he was not late.
Allen Leon Blaylock, Jr., lovingly known as "Dinky" was born in Lawton on Feb. 5, 1941 to proud parents, Eleanor Juanita Montgomery Blaylock and Allen Leon Blaylock, Sr.
"Dinky" attended school in Lawton and graduated from Douglass High School in 1962. While at Douglass , "Dinky" was an All-Star football payer. Since graduation, he very seldom missed a class reunion or an opportunity to visit with his friends. He was a great sportsman and excelled in golf, bowling, and archery, just to name a few.
Dinky relocated to Missouri and eventually became one of the founders of the First African-American limousine service in the state. He also had one of the first white limousines in Missouri as well as several shoe shine stands in various locations throughout Kansas City.
In 1979, Dinky moved back to Duncan, Okla. where he met and married Debra Jeter Blaylock, his loving wife of 31 years. In 1991, they moved to Chickasha and became highly respected and upstanding citizens in their community. Dinky was a member of the Loretta Y. Jackson African American Historical Society, where he served with pride. He taught golf to children at the Chickasha Country Club during the summer, and also worked for Homeland food stores where he became known as the "Meat Smoker" with his specialty being ribs and brisket among other items. Dinky operated "All-Pro Bar-B-Q" and serviced Lightner's and Homeland. He was loved and respected by many.
He was preceded in death by mother, Eleanor Juanita; father, Allen, Sr.; sisters: Laura Lee Blaylock Donahue, Willstine L. Blaylock Brewer, Velma Joe Blaylock Crowder Spencer and stepson Andre Maureese Jeter.
