Gregory Pierre Wallace
August 24, 1952 – July 7, 2018
Gregory Pierre Wallace entered life in Washington, DC, on Aug. 24, 1952 as the firstborn son to Clarence and the late Nan Wallace. He grew up assisting with the small family grocery store in North Brentwood, MD. He accepted Jesus at an early age and acknowledged Him all of his life, even though he often struggled along difficult paths. In 1970, he graduated from Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, MD, and later earned his B.A. in Sociology from Morgan State College in Baltimore, MD. He continued to assist with the family business and worked diligently in a variety of other jobs throughout his years. In 1998, he moved to Maui, Hawaii, where he enjoyed his favorite hobbies - fishing and swimming. He later returned to Maryland following a brief stay in Seattle, Washington. He always had an adventurous spirit, loved being around people, and put others before himself. You could say he put the “greg” in gregarious! On July, 7, he peacefully transitioned to heaven for eternal rest. He is welcomed there by his mother Nan, many other family members and friends. He leaves his dad Clarence, brother Steven D. (Elaine), sister Jennifer W. Dill (Tyrone), sister-in-law Jennifer Joyce Dill; “adopted” sister Rev. Dr. Cynthia Turner Wood (Jesse); nephews/nieces Steven Jr., Dwayne, Jennifer Marie, and Cori; uncle William Johnson; aunts Sadie Johnson, Hazel Dawson, Rev. Dr. Arlene W. Gordon, Jane Gordon, Hester Wallace, Barbara Wallace, numerous cousins and other family members and friends. His family is planning a celebration of life/memorial service at a later date TBD. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Central Union Mission (missiondc.org).
