Obituary for JOHN WALLACE, JR.
Mr. John Wallace Jr., otherwise known as "Puddin", "Beep" and Uncle "Puddin" to many, was born on May 20, 1940, to the late John Henry Wallace, Sr., and the late Mary Beatrice Mackall Wallace. His spirit departed from his body on May 21, 2011, after a lengthy illness.
He was educated in the schools of Calvert County. After he graduated he started his life as an assistant deputy in Calvert Co. and also working as a truck driver for various trucking companies such as Reliable Construction, Inc., Crofton, Md., Chaney's, Waldorf, Md. and K & K Adams, Baltimore, Md., just to name a few. He worked for the city of Baltimore until he could no longer.
He was loved by many and was well known for saying such as "ain't my fault". He loved to hang out with his friends and listen to "oldies but goodies". He also loved to listen to gospel music; his favorite hymn was "I'm Standing at The Crossroads" by Tommy Ellison, and "Sending Up My Timbers" by the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi.
He was baptized at an early age and definitely loved the Lord. He prayed the prayer of salvation in the early stages of his illness; and while hospitalized, he repented and gave his life back to the God. He was at peace. He was very courageous and put up a brave fight; blessed, indeed, to have gotten that chance.
He was preceded in death by three sisters: Bertina Chew, Ella Beatrice Wallace, and Mary King; one brother, Stephen Wallace; and one daughter, Maria Smith.
He leaves to cherish his memories nine children: Marvin Wallace, Baltimore, MD; Myrna Wallace, Shrewsbury, Pennsylvania; Rev. Maxine Thomas (Rev. Troy), Lexington, KY; Malcolm Wallace, Baltimore, MD; Melvin Stewart, Port Republic, MD; Paula Williams (Alan), Connecticut; Buffie Wallace, Hagerstown, MD; Myra Wallace McCloud (Mickey), Upper Marlboro, MD; John Wallace, Jr. (Jeanine), Fort Washington, MD.
Three sisters: Margaret Giles (Melvin), Sunderland, MD; Evangelist Dottie Stewart (Stanley), Crofton, MD; and, Karen Wallace, Annapolis, MD.

Lowell Thomas (Adopted Brother); Eleven grandchildren: Mya; Michelle; Tricia; Traci; Trina; Michael; Kirk; Vena; Danielle; Raina; and DeMyra. He also leaves a host of nieces and nephews.
