Born on April 12, 1963, on a military base at Fort Polk, Louisiana, Allan was the son of Billy Franklin Thompson Sr. and Joan Brewer Thompson. His father's service in Vietnam took the family on various journeys. Allan grew up embracing the challenges and experiences that shaped his character.
Tennis was one of Allan's lifelong passions, and he excelled in the sport. His skill and dedication led him to achieve a remarkable ranking of 5.0 or higher by USTA ratings. From Ellison High School in Killeen, Texas, to graduating from The University of Texas at Arlington in December 1985 with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, he exhibited his drive for excellence.
During his professional journey, Allan found both success and love. Joining Fidelity Investments in 1986, he formed a lasting friendship with Kevin Falk, who became his partner in life. Over 34 years, their bond evolved from work friends to a cherished life partnership. On April 8, 2014, while commemorating their 25th anniversary on Kauai, Hawaii, they exchanged vows, overlooking the scenic Hanalei Bay.
In 2017, Allan retired as a Director of Real Estate Services from Fidelity Investments. Eager to embark on a new chapter, he and Kevin swiftly relocated to Kauai, accompanied by their beloved dog, Yogi. Allan embraced life with an unwavering spirit, indulging in hiking, scuba diving, tennis, and being a supportive friend to many.
