Allen was such a great person and working with him at camp for 2 summers was beyond amazing. He was so encouraging and helpful and always had a positive attitude. The kids that got to have him as a counselor were more blessed than those of us who were able to work with him because he loved them so! Praying for your family through this difficult time.

Allen was a Collegiate 4-Her from UGA during my time as advisor to Middle Ga College Collegiate 4-H.  We attended several National Conferences with him.  He was a ray of sunshine, enthusiasm and encouragement for the youth in our organization.  He affected the lives of 4-Hers nationally.  He was respected and adored by all who knew him.  I recall riding the elevator with him at State Congress and telling him who much I admired him.  Allen, you will be missed.

My heart hurts so much for the pain you are suffering. Allen will be remembered by me for his smile, loving and kind ways and the sincere commitment he gave to the children and adults who were fortunate to come into his world. Thank you for sharing a little of him with me all these years. I am very grateful. My prayers will continue for you as the days become weeks, weeks become months, and months become years.  For I believe many children in the future will start a sentence with "Mr. Allen said........"

To the Allen family, I am so very sorry for your earthly loss. Allen was such an inspiration to me and all that he encountered. There are not enough words to describe Allen and his personality, his love, his compassion, his kindness, his FUN, his everything! He certainly touched a part of my heart from the first time I met him at Fortson. He was truly a fine young man that so many loved so dearly including me. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, I know Allen is rejoicing in heaven and there are definitely chocolate chip cookies on each and every pillow.

Dear Allen's Family,
Wanted to let you know that the loss of Allen is felt beyond Georgia, but by so many who were fortunate to get to know him through his involvement in our national 4-H professional organization, NAE4-HA. Allen and I worked closely together for three years on the Camping and Environmental Education Task Force as Chairs and Co-Chairs. His attention to detail, his willingness to help and ideas were some of what made him a leader. More importantly, was his warm personality, his laugh and his smile. I will miss seeing him at our annual meetings and national camping events. He was an amazing young man who made a difference for others. It was a gift to have known him. Peace be with you and your family.
Sincerely,
Nadine Fogt

Allen was a great force for 4-H on a national scale.  I'm privledged to have had the opportunity to work with him through the NAE4-HA Camping and Environmental Education Taskforce.  He added so much to the taskforce and therefore added so much to 4-H on a national level. He was kind, forward thinking, organized and you could tell that the good of 4-H and Camping was truly in his heart.  We are thinking of you all.  His loss is being felt around the country.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Allen this past summer while spending a few days at Camp Fortson with Antioch Christian Church. During those three days, I was so impressed and inspired by watching Allen spend his days working hard, being so gracious with the staff and welcoming to the camp guests, and interacting with the kids who loved and appreciated him wholeheartedly. He left such an impression on me, and it was so clear that he was a man of faith and strong values who was loved by so many. I am incredibly saddened and heart broken for you, please know that you will remain in my prayers. May the Lord comfort you always.

I did not know Charles but his accomplishments stand for so much.  I work with Cobb County Extension and we received the news Monday and the staff members who had been with him over the weekend prior to his passing were so heartbroken.  I have a daughter that is following the path that he has laid for the future.  Because of his dedicated work, she will see and experience so much more.  She plans to go into the agriculture field of work after high school. She started her journey at ABAC for a summer workshop and has not looked back.  She hopes to attend UGA this summer as part of the Young Scholars Program.  He will not be forgotten.  I am so sorry and I will pray for your healing and peace.

Though my time working with Extension was short, I always loved going to Camp Fortson. We would use the camp for weekend trips to Atlanta and my family has even used it personally when in the Atlanta area... Allen Nasworthy was the reason why! He took a rock and turned it into a diamond! He built a program that touched many lives, both children and adults. He lived an incredible life that always put others first. I enjoyed my time knowing Allen! He left Georgia 4-H better than when he found it! My heart felt condolences go out to the Nasworthy family and others who are going though this, you are not alone. Georgia 4-H is a family and will be here for you all.

Allen was a wonderful young man and will be truly missed by anyone blessed to have known him.  I remember when he decided to follow his FFA teacher's footsteps and pursue Ag Education.  There is no mistake it was his calling in life to share his contagious personality with young kids.  They will all be better adults to have known him. He obviously took pride in his work with FFA and 4H.  Your loss is tragic and our hearts break for your family's suffering.  May God Bless you all.

First, I would like to express my deepest condolences for all of Allen's family. Allen was a wonderful person and I am truly blessed for having known him. We had lost touch for many years, but he still crossed my mind many times. We met in 4-H when we were both in middle school. Allen was my first "boyfriend" and first kiss in high school. I am so glad that I was able to share that with him. I am so grateful that he took me to my first prom. He was such a kind soul and I know he left a lasting impression on everyone that he met. I pray that he has peace and I pray that his family will find peace.

Alan was such a happy young man and he loved  the 4-H . He will be miss not only through the 4-H community but through many other ways. My Condolences to your family and to the Fortson staff.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

3
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.

4
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.



5
You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.

6
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

To Allen's Family:  Our thoughts and prayers are with you every minute.  My parents (Rowan Family) were one of the founding directors of Camp Fortson.  I grew up out there my whole life working and volunteering.  When Allen came on as Director he worked hard--day and night--and made Camp Fortson what it is today.  The best 4-H Camp in the State of GA!  He gave it all for the staff, counselors, and loved his animals.  Every time we would go there he had to show us his latest animal and what they could do, or collect eggs for us to take home.  His love for camp and people was so real.  We loved him so much and appreciate everything he did for 4-H and the community.  We are so sad for the loss of his life....and know.my family will keep uplifting your family in prayer.  I am also so glad that Allen and Katie were great friends and had each other to talk to!  He made a huge impact on her life as well!  Love you all.

Allen,
Thank you so much for showing me that no matter what my life brings in the future that I will always have my 4-H family to fall back on! You truly impacted my life in a way that changed who I am. I will always remember being at camp and the turkey escaped the farm animal. I'll never forget the look I gave you when you told me we had to put it back in the fence so it wouldn't disturb any activities going on throughout camp. It took me a minute to figure out you were serious. Even though you may be gone from Fortson 4-H Center, the impact you made will always remind every camper and visitor that you are still there with us!
This is not my final goodbye, but my way of saying I'll see you later.

Such an amazing person, Inside and Out. I remember this goofy guy at counselor selection that was hyper and took way too many pictures. Then i got to spend a whole summer working with him at Rock Eagle. Such an inspiration to all the 4-Hers and anyone else he met. He was always smiling and happy. His vibrant personality was infectious and you couldnt be sad around him. Fly High Mico Naz youre going to be missed dearly.
You will forever live on in the hearts of thousands of 4-Hers.

His love is always with you
His promises are true

You know He will see us through

So when the road you're traveling on
Seems difficult at best
Just remember I'm here praying
And God will do the rest.

We love you all

Dear Pam, Lyn, and Family

I wanted to be there in person to tell you how wonderful a man Allen truly was. I know you all already know. Not only were we friends, but lab partners, and study buddies. He made my time at UGA wonderful. Studying didn't feel like studying because it was fun with him. He always had that wonderful light with him that was infectious. I've have nothing but wonderful memories of my time with him. He truly was the most genuine person I have known. I know in my heart his spirit and work will always continue. When I think of my college experience I will smile and celebrate my friend.  You all have been in my thoughts and prayers.

Love,

It has taken me weeks to come up with the words and I am sure they may not even be here still, but, I wanted to reach out and say how much I loved Allen and his amazing heart. He was one of the most caring and loving people I have ever met. His positive and fun attitude is what brought us together as friends. From having a ton of fun working at Western National Roundup to visiting him in GA to long chats on the phone, I remember my friend. I have found comfort in 2 Timothy 1:10. I am looking forward to seeing Allen again! Sending all of you love and strength.
