Yourick Allison, Jr., age 71, passed away on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 at his home in Marksville. He was born on October 21, 1949 to the late Yourick Allison, Sr. and Avurla (Doucet) Allison.
Brother Allison confessed Christ at an early age of ten, at New Zion Baptist Church in Eunice. After leaving Eunice, he joined St. John Community Church-Baptist under the leadership of Rev. Charles Guillory. Brother Allison served in Deacon Ministry: Deacon for the Usher’s Ministry, Director of Transportation and Driver. Whenever called upon for any reason, he was always willing to go the extra mile. He was very hard and dedicated worker, who held many jobs over the years. He took great pride in being the custodian for the St. John Community Church-Baptist for 18 years.
