Wallace Gene Perry, age 82, passed away surrounded by his family, July 7, 2021.

Wallace was born November 3, 1938 in Dallas, Texas to the late Nannie (nee Splawn) and Leonard Perry. After graduating high school Wallace joined the Air Force where he rose through the ranks to become a Chief Master Sargent. After retiring from the Air Force he continued his military service in The Air National Guard and worked as a civilian for the federal government. When he wasn't working Wallace stayed active golfing, bowling, playing volleyball and spending time with his family and friends.

Beloved husband of Marilyn (nee Kozlowski) Perry. Cherished father of Michelle Perry and Michael (Michele) Perry. Proud grandfather of Nicholas Perry and Scott Turner. Dear brother of the late Nancy and the late Leonard. He is preceded in death by his late wife Nancy (nee Jewett) Perry.
