Coy Robert Wallace, 85
Coy Robert Wallace went home to Jesus on April 13, 2020, at age 85.
Coy was born to Coy and Ruth Wallace on July 7, 1934, in Corsicana, Texas. He lived in Texas most of his life, but his career moved him to New Hampshire, Michigan, Tennessee, Illinois and Florida, before he finally retired back in Granbury, Texas. After the passing of his wife (Audrey), he moved back to Michigan to live with his youngest son (Kent) until his passing last week.
Coy met his wife Audrey Joyce (Laurance) Wallace in 1953 in Arlington, Texas. They married Jan. 29, 1955, and went on to have three children, Kathleen (Wallace) and Ken Perkins, Kevin Wallace, and Kent and Becky Wallace.
In addition to being a dedicated, faithful husband and father who loved his family most of all, Coy also loved sailing, biking and playing golf with his sons. Throughout his entire life, he held an unwavering faith in God, which he loved celebrating weekly with his church family at Granbury Presbyterian Church.
Coy joins his wife Audrey and sister Joanne Hedrick, who preceded him in death and await him in Heaven.
Coy is survived by his children, Kathy, Kevin and Kent; his grandchildren, Kyle, Kathryn, Rachel, Jacob, Hannah, Robert, Christopher, Zackary, Samuel, Michael, Benjamin and Nathan; and 24 great-grandchildren.
