KNOX - Wallace Quay, Sr. met his Savior face-to-face on Wednesday, February 16, 2011. He had celebrated his 94th birthday on February 13. Wally is now rejoicing in Heaven with his wife, Ella, who had predeceased him in 2003. He was known for his hospitality and kindness to anyone who crossed his path or happened upon his doorstep.

After retirement he kept himself busy working on small motors.
Wallace is survived by his sons Wallace Jr. and Ronald Quay.

"As for man, his days are like grass, as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. When the wind has passed over it, it is no more and its place acknowledges it no longer. But the loving-kindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him and His righteousness to his children's children."
