It was my pleasure to know Wallace as a co-worker and a friend. He was a wonderful, gentle, honest man and a joy to know. My heart is broken that he was taken from us. My husband also spoke thought very highly of him as a fellow Veteran. Our loss is Heaven's gain.

You were the BEST at getting my charts ready for my clinics at the VA. I fondly remember you as "Speedy", and you always called me "Alice". RIP my friend.

My heart is so heavy. My earliest memory of you was at my parents house and I was sitting next to you on the patio eating an ear of corn.
You ate it expertly and neatly, one row at a time! You were my cool and laid back uncle. How fond my mother was of you!
Over the years it was always fun to see you and talk with you. I'm so glad I was able to see you recently - looking so much like my dad.
It was such a comfort to see him in you. Rest in heaven, Uncle Wallace.
