Former Slack & Davis Attorney Rusty Allman Passes Away


It is with great sadness that the attorneys of Slack & Davis share that one of our former colleagues, John “Rusty” Chelsea Allman (Commander Ret. USN) passed away on January 16, 2017. Born in Dallas in 1943, Rusty was an accomplished aviation attorney and worked in the firm’s Austin office from 2002 to 2007. He also worked as an attorney to U.S. Airways and Continental Airlines pilots. Prior to entering the legal profession, Rusty—a graduate of the Navy’s prestigious Topgun program—served three tours of duty as a fighter pilot in Vietnam. The State of Texas and the U.S. Senate recognized him for his service to the country and his distinguished career. Rusty will be buried with full honors at Arlington National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, honorariums may be made to Riverbend Church or the charity of one’s choice.
