October 13, 1957 — January 2, 2017

Wayne T. "Timmy" Wallace, age 59, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, January 2, 2017 at Nashoba Valley Medical Center in Ayer. He was born in Westford on October 13, 1957, a son of the late Charles S. and Marjorie Catherine (Stalker) Wallace. Timmy was a resident of Leominster for the past several years and was formerly a longtime resident of Westford where he graduated from Nashoba Valley Technical High School class of 1975. Timmy worked as a printer for Media News Printing/The Lowell Sun for many years. He spent his entire working career in the printing industry and had previously been employed with Minuteman Press and Beacon Publications. He is survived by his sisters, Shirley Forrest, Evelyn "Meg" Lacourse and Martha Rice. His brother Donald Wallace survives him as well. Many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. A great –great grandniece and great-great grandnephew also survive “Uncle Timmy”. He was the brother of the late Kenneth, Brian "Wally" and Jon "Jude" Wallace. His niece Christine Brooks predeceased him. He was an avid Boston Sports fan and was a die-hard Red Sox fan. His love of the Red Sox found him in a wager with his brother Kenny, the family Yankee fan. Unfortunately Timmy lost the bet and had to roll a large boulder around Kenny’s yard at an Official Rock Rolling Party. He was able to share his love of sports with his many nieces and nephews and he attended many Patriots games with his late nephew, Marshall Wallace. Timmy enjoyed spending time at the family camp in Cushing Maine from the time he was a child until the present where he made a life time of memories with all generations of the Wallace family. He created the infamous” Phantom Trucker”, “Buzzweizer Bird”,” Happy the Toothless Clammer” and “Pete Oddheadsky” and delighted us all with stories and songs around the fire pit at the camp. Timmy shared his hobby of cultivating orchids with his niece Jennifer. Timmy was a tease and prankster in a loving way. He enjoyed a good laugh, especially over his niece Amanda and her cooking. She nicknamed him ‘The Party Saver”. He was a creative prankster who could take it as well as give it out. Many of his pranks were classics! A quick wit he loved to twist up the lyrics to popular songs changing a word here or there and ending up with a hilarious result. Timmy was a loyal friend and had many lifelong friendships, he was fortunate to call James McEvoy, Dave Kistner and family and the late “Uncle Chuckie” DeVries his friends. His sister in law Betty Verrecchia and her family were very close friends to Timmy. Timmy was a kind and gentle soul. He will be missed dearly and forever loved.ARRANGEMENTS - A Celebration of Timmy’s life will take place on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017 at the Roudenbush Community Center, 65 Main Street, Room 2, Westford, MA from 11am - 2pm.
