Obituary for Wallace Phillip Holtzmann

Manson

Wallace Phillip Holtzmann, 90, passed away peacefully June 26, 2020 at home following a long illness.

Born and raised in Warren County, North Carolina, he was the first born of the late Arnold and Edith (Hering) Holtzmann. He was a lifelong resident of the Manson/Drewry area, the only place he ever wanted to be. In addition to his parents, he is also preceded in death by his daughter, Vicky Holtzmann Maciupa and his brother, Rodgers Holtzmann.

Wallace worked on his father’s farm from an early age. He graduated from Norlina High School and then served in the US Navy for a brief time during the Korean War before returning home when his father was injured. He continued to farm for 60 years, which he loved.

Wallace was an active and faithful lifelong member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church until his health prevented his attendance. He served with the Drewry Volunteer Fire Department, working at fund raisers when he could no longer fire fight.

These organizations were a central part of his life and a great joy to him. Working on the farm was Wallace’s passion. His compassion for people and desire to help were well known in the community. His love of animals, despite his gruff attitude, meant many adoptions of strays and cold nights taking care of puppies or searching for a lost dog. His family was everything and Lucy could do no wrong.

Rev. Corey Brooks will conduct funeral services at 3:00 PM Sunday, June 28, 2020 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church with burial following in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends at the church one hour ahead of the funeral service from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

Wallace is survived by his wife of 53 years, Lucy Holtzmann, his children, Cathy H. Daugherty (Doc) of Alamogordo, NM, Terry T. Perkinson (Nat) of Cary, NC, Lynn T. Stone of Manson, NC and Jim D. Tucker (Susan) of Manson, NC; sisters, Shirley H. White and Evelyn H. Huffman and brother A. P. Holtzmann, Jr.; seven grandchildren, Frank Allen, Carena Cory, Jamie Stone, Kelly Stone, Rebecca Tucker, Laura Tucker and Meredith Tucker; six great grandchildren and one great- great grandchild.

Flowers are accepted or memorial donations may be made to the Drewry Volunteer Fire Department.

Arrangements are by Blaylock Funeral Home in Warrenton.
