Morris Wallace, Jr. was born on August 29, 1947. He departed this earthly life and transitioned to heavenly glory on the morning of Wednesday, September 15, 2021. He was born in Port Allen, Louisiana to the late Morris Wallace, Sr., and Carrie Beverly Wallace. He was the oldest child of his parent’s union.

On September 19, 1981 Morris was united in holy matrimony to Cora Ealy Wallace by the late Rev. Calvin Jackson, Sr. He was a long time resident of St. John Parish, Louisiana. Until his death, Morris served faithfully on the usher board for many years at New Wine Christian Fellowship Nondenominational Church in LaPlace, Louisiana under the leadership of Pastor Neil Bernard.

Morris had a winning smile and was always willing to give a helping hand. He loved barbequing, baking, and was a great cook! He could repair and fix almost anything. If he couldn’t repair it, he would find a friend who could or “google” the answer in order to complete the task at hand.
