Tribute

Freeman Leroy Wallace was born in Wichita on October 22, 1954;  the son of Richard Wallace and Dona Apton (Harmon). He was a graduate of Wichita South High School and worked for 42 years at Cessna in tooling and engineering. Freeman was a devoted man of God. You could find him every Wednesday evening leading the youth ministry at Leon church, especially with the middle and high school age children. He was a well-known drag racer at Kansas International Dragway in Maize, Kansas. Every local drag racer knew him by his 67’ bright yellow Camaro. If Freeman wasn’t at church or racing, he would be flathead cat fishin’ at the El Dorado Lake. He is also the published author of "Nones, Dones,Warriors: Come to the Light of Jesus". During his retirement years, Freeman became quite the cook. His greatest joy in life was his family, which includes, his children, Cristin (Michael) Keimig of Garden Plain and Tim (Tayelor) Wallace of Sedgwick; grandchildren, Lindsay, Alyssa, Jordan, Cody, Bentley and Bethany; great grandchildren, Aurora and Romeo; sister, Teresa Wallace-Abel (Kevin Abel) of Wichita; and many extended family and friends. Freeman went home to his Lord and Savior on March 9, 2022 in Wichita, Kansas. He is preceded in death by his parents and wife, Linda Wallace. Friends may gather with family on Thursday, March 17th from 5-7 pm at Carlson Funeral Home. Celebration of Freeman’s life will be held on Friday, March 18th at 11 am at Leon Christian Church. Burial will follow at Leon Cemetery. At Freeman’s request, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be directed to the National Rifle Association (NRA).
