Robert L. Wallace, 81, of Wesley Chapel, Florida, went to be with the Lord on Sept.13, 2022, after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.  Bob graduated from Binghamton North High School and Ithaca College, where he excelled at basketball and got a degree in Economics. He served his country for six years in the New Jersey Army National Guard. Bob’s career was in commercial insurance sales for over 40 years. He owned Wallace Agency for over 15 years, where he took great pride in servicing his clients. He was a hardworking man who loved to run, sail, ski, golf, play card games and was an avid sports fan.  Bob enjoyed volunteering at food pantry, as a member of Atonement Lutheran church.  However, his favorite pastime was spending time with his family.

Bob is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Patricia Ann (Maher).  Bob and Patti met as pen pals while he was in basic training for the National Guard. They married July 9, 1966, in Madison, New Jersey.  Together they loved to read, travel, relax on the beach, and raise their family, including many dogs.

Bob’s greatest source of love and pride were his children, Susan A. (Jason) Thomas, Robert J. (Charlotte), and treasured grandchildren Connor, Ella, Simmone and Caleb.

Bob is predeceased by his parents, Margery T. and William L., and many four-legged children, including Snuffy, Floppy, Frosty, Chubs, and Joey.

He leaves behind his brother David “Jack”, many special cousins and several adored nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Michael J Fox Foundation.  A celebration of his life will be held on November 5th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm with lunch provided at Atonement Lutheran Church at 29617 State Road 54 Wesley Chapel, FL 33543.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
