Wallace David McCarvill, 84
Wallace David McCarvill, 84, of Fennville passed away Saturday, July 30, 2016, at Holland Hospital. Affectionately known as "Big Wally" because of his 6'6" stature, he was lovingly surrounded by both his daughters when he met his Lord and Savior.
Born in the Bronx, New York, Wally attended Iona College on a full basketball scholarship. He was fifth in the nation in rebounding during his senior year. He thereafter played ball for the United States Marine Corps and achieved the rank of 1st Lt. Following an Honorable Discharge he was drafted by the New York Knicks; however, injured a knee in training camp.
He worked in sales for Tidewater Oil Company, Tuck Tape, and eventually became Vice President and co-owner of Farnol Paper Company.
Wally was an avid golfer and water enthusiast, winning the Detroit Athletic Club's coveted President's Trophy as high scorer for the DAC Beavers. He loved to deer hunt in northern Michigan, enjoyed single malt scotch, and attending services at his beloved Crossing in Chesterfield, Missouri.
He is survived by his children, Mary Margaret McCarvill of Saugatuck and Elizabeth Ann Burns, also of Saugatuck; grandchildren, David Alden Kizer of Salt Lake City, Utah, Kathryn Alden Kizer of Washington, D.C, and Monica Elizabeth Burns of Tucson, Arizona.
A memorial celebration will be planned for a future date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in his name to Living Water International at www.water.cc/donate/adventconspiracy.
