Allen Barham Bratton, born February 12, 1960, and passed Friday, April 3, 2020, at St. Francis Medical Center in Monroe, LA at the age of 60. He was born in Galveston, TX and lived in Monroe, LA. He moved to Oak Ridge, LA in 1981, as a young man to work the land as a cotton and corn farmer. Nineteen years later, after deciding on a change of pace, he went back to college and graduated from University of Louisiana at Monroe with a degree in Construction Management. Like a true Louisiana sportsman; Allen enjoyed hunting, fishing, and sharing these outdoor passions with his friends. He also loved cooking and found the most joy when he could share that love with his family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Edwards Barham Bratton and Jane Catherine Fox Bratton; and both sets of grandparents, Louis and Catherine Fox and Dr. R.E. and Dale Bratton.
Survivors include wife, Jamie; son, Barham Bratton and wife Kacie; daughter, Madison Sutton and husband Darren; grandchildren, Ethan, Broghan, Brox, and Brantley; stepchildren, Sean and Claire Sumlin; brothers, Louis (Rhonda) Bratton and David Bratton (Bambi); sister, Bonnie (Les); and along with a host of cousins, nieces and nephews.
There will be a private family service at this time with a Life Celebration to be announced at a later date. Allen’s life revolved around the Gulf of Mexico, enjoying the coast of both Texas and Louisiana. As such, his ashes will be spread in one of his favorite places to vacation, Port O’Connor, Tx.
In lieu of Flowers you can make a donation to his favorite place to volunteer Desiard Street Shelter or your local Food Bank or favorite charity.
