May 3, 1939 ~ January 27, 2024 (age 84) 84 Years Old
Wallace Aubrey Mann was born on May 3, 1939 to the late Ethel Elizabeth Church Mann and Aubrey “Buddy” Mann of Quantico Maryland. Since childhood, Wallace had determination and an incredibly strong work ethic. Always enterprising, energetic, and industrious, he left school at a young age to work to help support his family. While working, he overcame many obstacles and acquired talents that would serve him well throughout his life. Never afraid of a challenge, he proudly resumed his high school education and graduated from Salisbury High School in 1959.
Wallace loved life, lived it to the fullest and did so on his terms. He was warm and generous, yet exacting and sometimes a little fiery. He was as tough as nails, but he had a soft heart and shared his emotions easily. He adored his family and friends. Wallace never met a stranger and made friends wherever he went. His beautiful, infectious smile lifted spirits and reflected the joy he carried in his heart.
Wallace was an excellent chef and loved cooking. Feeding people was one of his favorite expressions of love. He fed thousands. Wallace also was a prolific gardener with an incredible green thumb. He could make anything grow. He loved nature and the outdoors. He grew fruits, vegetables, and flowers for himself, his family, friends, and neighbors. Wallace made the world around him beautiful.
Wallace also loved sports. Being very athletic, he was an excellent softball player and accomplished golfer. He loved playing, watching, and talking about golf with friends and family. In his earlier years, he was a star player in a competitive softball league. Wallace was a steadfast and enthusiastic Ravens, Orioles, Warriors, Lakers and Wizards fan. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing.
Most importantly, Wallace knew and had a strong personal relationship with God. He loved and supported Wesley Temple United Methodist Church, where he and a dedicated team lovingly operated the food ministry for many years. He was renewed by weekly church services and enjoyed attending streamed services when he was unable to attend in person. He was always thrilled and humbled to receive visits from his pastors and fellow church members.
Wallace left this Earth to be with the Lord on January 27, 2024 at the age of 84. He leaves to love and remember him his former wife Annette; son Keith, daughter Kimberly (Jerome); grandchildren Sean, Kenbre‘, and Nijah; foster grandchild Trayvon; great-grandchildren Tamyah, Leyah, Lela, and Kaz; brother Michael; nieces Pamela, Deborah, Ingrid, Melva, and Erica; nephews Aaron, Eric, Kevin, and Nathaniel; many beloved great-nieces, great-nephews, and cousins; and a host of dear friends and associates.
