Obituary

AZLE - Johnny Allen Lybrand, 67, fixer, prankster, truth-teller, believer, and deluxe storyteller with a one-of-a kind laugh and a heart big enough to enfold his family (including his former wife who has remained his lifelong best friend, six children, 21 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, two very special dogs and too many friends to count), went to be with the Lord on October 28, 2019.

An active member of Calvary Pentecostal Church, Allen will be remembered at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, at Calvary Pentecostal Church, 204 N Ector Dr., Euless, TX 76039.

Allen was born on March 6, 1952, in Anniston, Alabama to Eva Laverne (Hammond) and Johnny Travis Lybrand. He grew up in Anniston, and then moved to Houston with his family where he played high school football and attended Cypress Fairbanks High School. After high school, Allen left home to go to work for a crane service, and while employed there he was badly injured in a crane accident. He spent the next two years in the hospital and fully recovered, but he walked with a limp and endured residual pain for the rest of his life.

As someone with a special talent and love for working with his hands, Allen was well known as a jack-of-all-trades — and master of most of them. As a teenager he helped build the stage at Woodstock, and though his life he was well known for being able to build anything he set his mind to. He crafted furniture for his family, fixed anything mechanical — and some things not — and no matter how well something was done, he could always find a way to make it better.

Professionally, Allen served as a general manager in automotive, construction, food and hospitality industries, owned his own business building retaining walls, spent some time in the 1990's driving race cars, and continued to work as a handyman, builder, and mechanic throughout his life.

Always putting his family first, Allen was famous among his family and friends as a great cook (his particular specialties were hot wings and banana pudding), a jovial host who loved a big get-together (especially Thanksgiving and Christmas), a big fan of NASCAR, the Dallas Cowboys, and Tabasco sauce (on almost everything), how much he enjoyed his dogs, Toby and Barker, gardening, and mowing his yard with his tractor.

Allen’s big love and deep laughter will be missed especially by his survivors: Johnny Lybrand, Jr., Lexi Lybrand, Kristopher Lybrand, Kyla Lybrand, Jason Lybrand and his wife, Kristy, Robert Lybrand, Braylynn Lybrand, Shanea Roberson and her husband, DJ, Makayla Almeida, Melanie Angel and her husband, Jesus, Aries Angel, Dawson Almeida, Lacey Almeida, River Almeida, Amber Ryerson, Rachel Ryerson, Marissa Roberson, Elena Roberson, Shawn Lybrand and his wife Kristen, Shawn Lybrand, Jr., Sarah Lybrand, Audrey Lybrand, arriving in February, Caroline Lybrand, Lance Lybrand, Sebastian Lybrand, Brittany Tripp, Alex Tripp, and Gideon Tripp.
