Marcel Wallace was the youngest of three siblings born to the union of Lloyd and Annie Wallace on June 2, 1972, in St. Louis, Missouri.

 He attended Carver Elementary, Williams Middle School, and Hazelwood East High School. During his younger years he was a member of the Boy Scouts in which he learned a lot about structure and discipline.

 After his tenure in school, he diligently worked to help build the family business, TCB Package Liquor.  He enjoyed working with customers at the family store as well as finding creative ways to make extra money on the side by selling odds and ends the store didn’t sell. Later, he pursued a career at Wonder Bread where he was a distinguished driver that serviced various vendors and was well-known amongst routes for making everyone smile. 

Marcel was very humorous and often found ways to slip in a joke out of nowhere, making people pause, laugh, and then ask themselves, did he just say that? He worked hard at everything he did and was very generous always helping others in need.  His hard work ultimately paid off when he accomplished one of America’s biggest dreams in purchasing his own home along with his dream vehicle, a Cadillac Escalade EXT. He also was a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan, and you could not tell him anything wrong about his team!

For many years Marcel struggled with health issues, at times he felt misunderstood and wronged, but he never gave up until it was his assigned time to take his rest. Marcel was preceded in death by his father, Lloyd Wallace and mother, Annie Wallace Bell.

He leaves to cherish his precious memories: Sisters and Brother, Lynne Wallace of St. Louis, Missouri; Laureen Wallace of Murfreesboro, TN; Quinn Wallace of Los Angeles, CA; Nieces and Nephews, Ciera Howard, Frederick Michael Eason Jr., Mikala Eason, Kenneth Williams, Kaylyn Williams; Aunts, Sharon James (Edward), Brenda Yancey, Darlene Smith, Althea Taylor (Anthony), Susan Wallace, Wanda Green, Christine Brownlee, Deborah Mitchell; Uncles, Maurice Wallace Jr (Denise), James Phillips (Naomi), George Phillips, Jeff Burch Jr (Jackie); and a host of cousins, and friends

Ernest went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday, April 16, 2022.  He was born on January 13, 1961, in Shelbyville, TN.  Ernest is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Lucille Holman, his father, Ernest “Sleepy” Cleveland, and his brother, Jeffrey Holman.

Ernest was a devoted man of God.  Each and every day of his earthly life he prayed and read the Word of God.  While living in Havelock, NC, he was a devoted member of Mt. Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church.  He enjoyed singing in the choir, and his duties as usher.  When he moved back to Shelbyville, he became a member of Bright Temple COGIC.

Ernest had two great pleasures, fishing and playing bass guitar.  To say he was good at both is an understatement.  Very seldom did Ernest come back from fishing without a nice catch.  He would often clean his catch and take them to others who loved fish.

Ernest leaves behind a very loving family, one daughter, Wendy Denise Holman of Decherd, TN; one step-son, Al Wyatt Martin of Shelbyville, TN;  one brother, Randy (Cindy) Holman of Havelock, NC; two sisters, Cynthia and Stephanie Holman, both of Shelbyville; five half-brothers,  Eddie, James, and Calvin Cleveland, Mike Smith and Steph Smith;  four half-sisters, Carol and Twanda Murray, Freda Johnson and Tracy Nichols.  Ernest was blessed with five grandchildren, Alana Thomas, Khari Pentacost, Jacqual Holman, Letrona Thomison and Kye Tate.  These strong family bonds also include a host of cousins, one niece and four nephews.

The family grieves the loss of Ernest, but we rejoice and give thanks to our Heavenly Father knowing where he is and that we will reunite again. 

The family asks in lieu of flowers that donations be made to Bright Temple COGIC, PO Box 453, Shelbyville, TN 37162, or to Mt. Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, PO Box 1101, Newport, NC 28570.
