Allen James Quarterman, III
December 14, 2014
Allen James Quarterman, III, (Brother), entered into eternal rest suddenly in December 2014 at his residence in Hyattsville, Maryland.
Brother was the second child of nine children born on Januay 15, 1945, to the late Allen and Delores Quarterman in Washington, DC. He was preceded in death by his brother, Frank O'Dell (Speedy) Quarterman.
At an early age, he confessed Christ, was baptized at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. Brother was loving and caring to all he met; he would give you the shirt off his back if he thought it would help you in any way. Everyone that met him always loved his thoughtful and happy-go-lucky ways. His love to his family was genuine and he was always forgiving of others. Brother truly lived God's Word to the best of his understanding.
He was educated in the Washington, DC public school system and was employed as a licensed master cement finisher for over 45 years with the Cement Mason's Local 891 in Washington, DC prior to his retirement in 2007. He also held positions at the Congressional Country Club, as a caddie, and as a custodian at Temple Israel, prior to retirement. He then established his own neighborhood landscaping business.
Brother's memory will live on in the hearts of his loving family, brother, Joseph of Temple Hills, Maryland; Gloria of Atlanta , GA; Lavonia (Zontine, deceased) Reid, Kay (David) Moore, Marlene, Patricia, and Doretha; a surrogate sister, Denise Cockerham; his best friend, Jeff; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
