Earl Mcallister

April 7, 1930 — February 7, 2021

Earl W. McAllister, resident of Central, formerly of Baton Rouge, passed away on Sunday, February 7 2021, at home on Blackwater Road, at the age of 90 years.  He was the 8th of 9 children born to Hiram and Birdie McAllister on April 7, 1930.  He graduated from Istrouma High School in 1947, and married the love of his life, Betty Basso McAllister on March 11, 1949.  Earl was known by family and friends by his childhood nickname, “Tunt.”  He was brilliant, funny and self-educated.  He could recite passages from the Bible and from Shakespeare and enjoyed debating on religion and politics.  Although he played golf for many years, his biggest hobby was taking care of his large property.  Earl was known as a hard worker who built a dream home on his property for his family.  His ten-acre property was fronted by a long white fence that he built and repaired when needed.  Earl was an amazing bricklayer.  He worked for Mr. Herez who was contracted to Ethyl Corporation.  After the death of Mr. Herez, Mr. McAllister became the contractor at Ethyl.  Earl was also a free mason who served his Lodge as Master.  “Tunt” is survived by his wife of 71 years, Betty Basso McAllister, and his three children, Randi McAllister-Black, Earl Wayne McAllister, and Valerie McAllister.  He and Betty have 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.  Earl multiplied the talents given him, so that God will say to him, “well done good and faithful servant.”  Visitation will be held at Resthaven Funeral Home on Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. until Funeral Service at 10:30 a.m.  Interment will follow on the grounds of Resthaven Gardens of Memory.  Family and friends may sign the online guestbook or leave a personal note to the family at www.resthavenbatonrouge.com.
