Melvin Monroe Wallace departed this earthly life on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, in the Community Hospice House in Richmond, Virginia. His earthly journey began on May 1, 1949, the sixth child born to the union of the late Otelia and Floyd Wallace Sr., of Charles City, Virginia.
He was raised in New Kent County and attended George W. Watkins High School (now known as George W. Watkins Elementary School). He worked for Eastern State Hospital until moving to Richmond where he was employed with Merrick Bank Corporation.
“Pee Wee”, as he was affectionately known, never married or had children of his own. He took his nieces and nephews and treated them as his own children. His warm and loving heart will truly be missed by all who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Ann Moody, brothers, Charles and Richard Wallace, nephews, Adrian Wallace and Todd Whitaker, and a great-nephew, Tremayne Safewright. His memory will forever remain with his brother, Sherman Wallace (Angel); sisters, Irene Randall, Ruby Whitaker and Shirlene Clark; brother-in-law, James Moody (Verlene); sister-in-law, Marie (Hubert); devoted nephew and niece, Rev. Morris L. Randall Sr. (Helen), and Cheryl Wright; aunt, Floria Randall; devoted cousins, Elder Clarence Bervine and Mary Brooks; and a host of other loving relatives and friends.
