September 20, 2021, 71, Goldsboro –
William “Bill” Edward Wallace passed away peacefully on the morning of September 20, 2021. He was preceded in death by his father, William Wallace; his mother, Hettie Wallace; and son William Wallace, Jr. He is survived by his wife, Charlotte Wallace; daughter Kimberly Storino and husband Trent Storino, and their children Frank and Henry; daughter Kristy Hornthal and husband Phillip Hornthal, and their children LP, Ellie, and James; daughter Kimberly South and husband Jeremy South; sister Barbara McCabe and husband Bob McCabe; sister Hettie Grisette and husband Al Grisette; his beloved dogs Emmett and Remmy, and many close family and friends.
Bill was born November 18, 1949 in Portsmouth, VA, and grew up in Edenton, NC. He fondly remembered fishing, hunting, and working with his uncles at the Outer Banks in the summer. In college he proudly wore the number 33, playing football for East Carolina University as a running back, becoming a devoted Pirate for life. For many years he was a regular at ECU tailgates, enjoying BBQ and beer on ice before seeing the Pirates play. Always outgoing, Bill never met a stranger and made friends everywhere he went, and will be dearly missed.
A celebration of life ceremony will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at Wayne Memorial Park, 2925 US-117, Dudley, NC 28333 with Rev. Andy Stovall officiating.
Reception to follow at the home of Hettie and Al Grisette at 106 Solara Dr., Goldsboro N.C.
