James Harvey
Wallace, 93
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- James Harvey Wallace, 93, of Daytona Beach, Fla., and Scarborough, died peacefully on Dec. 4, 2013, in Port Orange, Fla., surrounded by family. Harvey was born to the late Clifford Wallace and Lucinda (Pease) Wallace on Sept. 4, 1920, in Hollis.
Harvey graduated from Buxton High School, and served in the United States Army during World War II. In 1947, Harvey married Florence (Michael) Wallace and moved to Lowell, Mass., where they raised their son James. The family moved to Greenfield, Mass., in 1964. Florence died in 1987. He retired from the Boston and Maine Railroad in 1980 after a 33-year career. He was a 32nd degree Mason in the Buxton Lodge #115 AF & AM, then later entered the Kora Shrine in Lewiston.
Harvey lived an active and full life and he was grateful for the many friends he made over the years. He golfed and bowled into his 80s. He was an excellent card player and loved playing poker, gin, cribbage and canasta. He especially enjoyed reading John Grisham novels, and was a lifetime fan of the Patriots, Red Sox and Celtics. He was always quick to lend a hand to a neighbor, family member or friend embarking on a home improvement project and he enjoyed 'puttering' in his workshop. However, most of all, Harvey loved his family.
Harvey leaves behind his wife, Dolores (Vespi) Wallace; his son, James Wallace and daughter- in-law Patricia Rissmeyer of Boston, Mass.; his granddaughter, Jennifer Wallace of Northampton, Mass., his grandson, Joshua Wallace and Josh's wife Bethany of Amherst, Mass.; his three great-grandchildren, Madden, Holden and Laurel; and many close family members in Maine.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013, at the First Congregational Church of Buxton/Tory Hill Meeting House, Buxton. Thoughts and condolences may be shared with the family by visiting www.HeritageDaytona.com. All arrangements are under the care of Heritage Funeral & Cremation Service, Port Orange, Fla.
