    My condolences to Inez and the Byers Family. I will always have wonderful memories of Wallace’s kindness to me. He was a fountain of knowledge and his skills were unsurpassed. He let me “help” with repair jobs and gave me the courage to try new skills.

    Wallace was an amazing man and both him and Inez were there for me when I needed them most. As they were for everyone they encountered. A hard working honest man that loved his family more than anything. He will be truly missed. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
