Obituary for CARLTON BERNARD WALLACE

Carlton Bernard Wallace was born on February 19, 1942 in Huntingtown, Maryland, to the late Robert and Bertha Jones Wallace. On April 21, 2013, Carlton went home to be with the Lord after making peace with his Savior Jesus Christ. At a young age, Carlton began attending Patuxent United Methodist Church where he was a member of the Junior Choir. As an adult, he became a member of the Apostolic Faith Church of Jesus Christ the Lord, Inc. On August 24, 1963, Carlton married his high school sweetheart, Gloria Ann Jones. From their union, they were blessed with twin daughters, Doanda Lee and Floanda Dee. Carlton received his education in the Calvert County Public School system, graduating from William Sampson Brooks High School in 1962. At Brooks High, he excelled in track and field and was known for his friendly demeanor. He later earned college credits from the University of Maryland in the area of highway engineering. He was employed by the Gly Construction Company in Prince George's County. He later began employment at the Grand Union Food Distribution Center. In 1991, he began working for the Calvert County Government - Department of Highway Maintenance. There he served as a Crew Leader until his retirement in 2008. Subsequently, he worked part-time for Building and Grounds in the Court House and Sheriff's Department. Carlton was also the community handyman, always helping with landscaping and mechanical work. He was a true perfectionist in all his endeavors, completing each job meticulously. He was well known for his animated personality, and his ability to make people laugh. He was always telling funny stories or acting out some comedic role. He enjoyed all sports, but particularly loved rooting for his favorite football team, The Philadelphia Eagles. Carlton will be greatly missed. He leaves to cherish his legacy: his loving wife, Gloria; daughters, Doanda Wallace and Floanda Jackson (Darryl); two grandsons, Charlton “CJ”, and Brandon Jackson; one great granddaughter, Adrianna Rose; two brothers, James O. Jones (Martha), and Kenneth W. Wallace (Renee); three sisters, Mildred Young (Leonard), Bertha Young (Amos), and Jean Moore (James); brothers-in-law, James Duckett, Sr., Eugene Spears, Joseph Rayfield Jones (Alberta), William Edward Jones (Vonda), Lorenzo Thomas Jones (Susan); sisters-in-law, Della Wallace, Lena Mae Jones, Betty Jacks, Barbara E Jones (Paige), and Paulette Parker (Arnold); godchildren, Lafonso Young, Monica Carrington, and Danene Duckette; a paternal Aunt, Doris Armstrong; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends. Carlton was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Bertha Wallace; parents-in-law, Rudolph Jones Sr. and Theo Jones; brother, Robert 'Happy' Wallace; sisters, Dorethea Johnson (Louis) and Vitenia Spears; and brothers-in-law, Rudolph C. Jones, Jr. and William 'Billy' Jacks.
