Kenneth Jacob Wallace (Kenny), 87, of Gilbert, Arizona, was called home to our heavenly father on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. He called it “graduating.”

Ken was born on May 15, 1932 in Philadelphia. He was preceded in death by his father James; mother, Margaret; and his siblings, Wesley, Beatrice, James, and Lorece.

He was a Korean War veteran and had a master’s degree in education. Ken went to college when he was forty years old. Ken loved spreading the word of our Lord. One of the ways he did that was by handing out the book of John and discipling others every chance he had. He dedicated his life to our Lord and helped as many people as possible. He will be remembered for all the love, support, and kindness he shared in his everyday life. We lost a great man, but heaven gained an angel.

Kenny will be remembered by his wife, Chris and his first wife, Delores, with whom he had three children, Kenneth Jr. (wife Debbie), Janet (husband Chuck), and David (wife Linda). His grandchildren are Adam, LaVina, Joel, Brandon, Carissa, and Luke.

A special thank you to all the wonderful people who had a close friendship with our Pop from Church.

PopPop, you will be greatly missed!

    Ken. This is Aaron Andrew. I know you wont see this.
    You taught me so much. I am going to continue to pass out the Gospels of John’s like you taught me. You have been such a huge blessing and inspiration in my life.
    You are with Jesus. One day I will be with you again, our king. Though I mourn your no longer here with us on earth, I celebrate your with the King. I love you so so much, your a grandfather to me. Thank you Ken for your life, for everything. Psalms 91. Words cannot express how I feel about you.
