David Allen Wallace Sr. born November 11, 1940 in Cincinnati, Ohio, left to be with the Lord on December 20, 2013 after battling a short but courageous fight against liver cancer.

On October 1, 1958 David married the love of his life Zetta and together they had seven children; David (Cheryl), Danny, Tammy (Dean), Leroy, Cindy (Dan), Eric and Gary (deceased).  David also leaves behind one sister Sherry (Dennis), 18 grandchildren and 37 great grandchildren.  He is preceded in death by his parents Edgar & Ruth Wallace and one sister.

David worked for Holsum Bakery in Phoenix, Arizona for 36 years before retiring 10 years ago.  David had a passion for fishing and enjoyed bowling, hunting and trips to Vegas until illness kept him from traveling.

After being diagnosed with liver cancer, David met the challenge head on and began treatment with a positive attitude and determination to beat his latest battle.  David’s strength and courage during this time was an inspiration to his family and friends.  David will be deeply missed by those who love him.

Please join his family in celebrating his life on January 10, 2014 at 11:00 at Best Funeral Home and Chapel located at 9380 West Peoria Avenue in Peoria, Arizona 85345.


Until we meet again, please watch over us

Didn’t want you to leave but God said you must.

Life is to short no matter the length

God has our plan made as soon as we breath.


Each day we will miss you, but go on we must

Getting strength from keeping you close to our hearts.

Each night when we lay down we’ll tell you goodnight

Knowing each day you have watched from above.


Rest now in peace, keep a watch over us

Know that we love you each day and each night.

We know you are free from the pain that you felt,

Until we meet again, may you rest…and good night.
