Charles Franklin Frank Wallace

October 19, 1932 ~ October 11, 2020
Frank Wallace was born in Condon, OR, and the family moved to Washougal, WA, when he was 5. Following his high school graduation, he served two years in the Marine Corps.
Frank married his high school sweetheart, Corrine Restorff, in 1952, and they shared 47 years together. The had three sons, Ken (Sandy), Ed (Janice) and Dave (Kasi).
They enjoyed their church, friends, traveling, ocean fishing, golf and hunting. Both received their pilots license. Early in their marriage, they moved to Enumclaw, WA, where they owned and ran a bakery. He later worked for the Bakers Association as a consultant to independent bakers. This job took them to Knoxville, TN, for seven years.
They later returned to Washougal in 1965, and Frank accepted a job at Carnation Dairy in Portland, OR, as a route salesman. He always said door-to-door delivery was his favorite job.
Around 1970, Frank and Corrine purchased Top Burger, in Camas, WA, and operated it for a time until he returned to Carnation Dairy as route manager. Their last endeavor was to own and operate United Fire and Safety in Portland.
Frank was able to retire in 1989 at age 57, so he and Corrine enjoyed 10 years filled with travel, cruises and the things they enjoyed. They also volunteered together at Dunes Bible Camp, in Ocean Park, WA, and helped to build the church there.
Sadly, Corrine passed away in 1999 after battling cancer. Frank was a loving and kind husband and caregiver until her death.
Frank married his second wife, Lavonne Lundstrom, in 2000. Although in their 60s, they were able to enjoy 20-1/2 years together. They also enjoyed traveling in their RV, cruises, church, family and friends, and volunteering at the Bible Camp. They moved into a senior retirement community for a year, but Frank got restless, so they moved to Lavonne’s duplex in Washougal. There Frank created a 200-foot raised garden which allowed him to share generously with family and friends. He liked to entertain, and his barbecued steaks were the very best!
In addition to his wife, Lavonne and his sons and their wives, Frank is survived by two stepsons, Jim Ochs (Sherry), Leonard Ochs (Linda) and two stepdaughters, Julie Lim and Connie Higdon (Ron); nine grandchildren, 11 step-grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.
Frank will be deeply missed, but we take comfort in knowing that he firmly believed in our Savior Jesus, and he is now in Heaven where he is free of the pain he endured the last few years. Special thanks to Julie, Lacey and Tyler for their loving care.
