Wallace

David Irwin Wallace, Jr., age 97, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 29, 2022.  He was born January 12, 1925, to David I. Wallace, Sr., and Gertrude Oberthier Wallace.

David met the love of his life, Betty Jean Knight, in Henderson, TX in 7th grade.  The rest is history, as they spent the rest of their school years as sweethearts.  In 1944, while home on leave from the Army, David and Betty were married.  They were married for 74 years.  David passed away one day before what would have been their 77th Anniversary.  What a celebration they must have had!
