'I lost the love of my life': Woman grieves over death of fiancé killed in fiery I-75 crash

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — In just three years, Adriane Falcon and Dan Allmond had built a lifetime of happiness.

He was a Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles employee, but Allmond’s real passion centered in the arts. He often performed in plays at the Carrollwood Players Theatre.

“He acted. He did voice acting. He did watercolors and acrylics. He even did my hair,” his fiancé Adriane Falcon said. “Everything. Everything was something that could be made into something else. It was all something different. It all could be recreated into something different.”

But their future came to a halt last week. Allmond was driving on Fowler Avenue when a tractor-trailer tumbled over the guardrail of the I-75 overpass, crushing his car and setting it on fire.

“Abby lost her brother. My mother-in-law lost her only son. My father-in-law lost his only son. I lost the love of my life. This man was everything,” Falcon said.

“He was an incredibly wonderful person who didn’t think he was all that kind but in reality, he was one of the kindest and (most) generous persons I ever met,” Falcon said.
