Timothy Lance “Timbo” “Chief” Wallace, age 41, passed away on January 23, 2016. “Timbo” was the son of Mary Ann and the late Harold Wallace of the Burnside community.

Besides his father, he was also preceded in death by a brother, Russell Lee Wallace and a very special nephew, “Mikey” Nicholas.

He leaves behind his young daughter, Maryann and her mother, Twana Johnson. Maryann was the light of his life, she always brought a smile to his face and a twinkle in his eyes. Timothy was the youngest sibling to Tara, Todd, Tammie and Thurman Wallace and Tina Nicholas. He was a cousin to Thomas Hughes. He was a loving uncle to Trista, Jacob, Kristin, Kendra, Samantha and Kelly. He was nephew to a special Aunt Janet and Uncle Larry Hughes.

He grew up in the Blue John/Alpine area of Pulaski County. Timbo always held a special love for “the holler”, which was an area deep in Daniel Boone Forest that was the family home place for seventeen years. He had a love of hunting, fishing and all things nature. He embraced his Native American heritage by studying and researching their history.

Timothy lived in Lexington for several years, working in the construction industry. He enjoyed being a member of the Upward Bound group that met at Berea College. Here he met many friends and established a lifelong friendship with Mr. Charles Stonewall, of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Please remember him as a person who loved his family, music and laughter. He would want those who loved him to be happy and mourn for him, if we must. But remember, at the end of our journey, he will be waiting for us on the other side with that big smile and a “Welcome Home”….
