After 36 years with Phillips Petroleum, Wallace retired at 56. Upon retiring, he became known in our area as a "trader" specializing in boats, fishing gear, gadgets, motors, lawnmowers . . . anything you would ever need. He said every day felt like a Saturday because he had so much fun.
Wallace loved life, but his family ranked above all else. His sons gave him the most enjoyment and pride. His legacy in this circle of life lies within the integrity and strength he passed on to his sons and their family: Larry Boone and his wife, Phyllis, and Steve Boone and his wife, Karla. His grandchildren are Ambre Gooch and her husband, Ron, Chelsea Boone and her husband Patrick Bolen, and Stephanie Boone; his great grandchildren are Talor Gooch, Cassidi Gooch and Savanna Bolen. Life would have been shallow for Wallace without the sweet companionship of his dearest friend during these last 6 years, Shirley Couch. Wallace also leaves a brother, Jackie, and sisters, Mary Frances Franklin, Gaye Clagg, and Pearlean Woods.
Wallace Has been the anchor to our family and will be dearly missed. He will be remembered for his strength of character, loyalty to friends and family, fairness to people from all walks of life, his generous love, his fighting spirit . . . "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" [2 Timothy 4:7].
