Remembering Allen Tumey | Events
WAFB Channel 9 is mourning the passing of one of our own-- Allen Tumey of "Tumey's Travels". He passed away Monday, March 25 in his home in Lake Charles. He was 70 years old.
His friend and Colleague Anchor Donna Britt recalled that she had a picture of Tumey as a youngster. She said she received it when the station asked for baby pictures of the staff several years ago. This was one of the youngest pictures Tumey had of himself -- he's shown here with his sisters.
"I loved it so much I could not delete it after we finished using it in the story," Britt said.
