Terry Lee Wallace, 63, of Kingfisher, peacefully passed away, surrounded by loved ones, on Nov. 7, 2021, after a short battle with esophageal cancer.
After an eventful childhood, Terry met Brenda (Hutchinson) Wallace in high school.
They fell in love and wed April 5, 1978, becoming lifelong partners of 43 years, going on to have two children, Kelly and TJ – both of Kingfisher.
Terry was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world and always tried his best to support them.
He was a strong, kind, loving and a supportive husband, father and grandfather.
His knowledge and guidance were the foundation of his family.
Terry was also an avid motorcyclist, passionate gardener and animal caretaker.
In his early years, he spent most of his time riding motorcycles with his family and friends across Arkansas and Oklahoma and in retirement spent much of his time outdoors by tending to his garden and spending time with his four dogs, especially Buddy.
He is survived by his wife, Brenda Wallace; his children, Kelly (Wallace) Lukasek and husband Shane, and TJ (Terry James) Wallace and wife Chelsea; and his six grandchildren, Spencer Lukasek and wife Kassie, Keelyn Lukasek and fiancé Braxton McCue, Lennon Lukasek, Landry Lukasek, Cohen Wallace and Cameron Wallace; his sister Mattie Dedmon; his brothers Jerry Boutwell, Harold Ransom and Michael Ransom.
A private memorial will be held in celebration of his life.
The family requests in lieu of flowers and notes for donations to be made to St. Jude’s in his memory.
Cremation services were under the direction of Wilson Funeral Home Kingfisher.
