Barry Wallace VIEW PROFILE

Barry James Wallace, 64, of Newport, died Sunday, Nov. 15, 2020, at Vidant Health in Greenville.

His wish was to be cremated, and there will be a small service with family and close friends at a later date.

Barry was born in Durham and resided in Newport to be closer to his favorite place, “the ocean.” He was known for his kind heart, incredible laugh and always being the tannest on the beach.

He was survived by his only daughter, Francescka Eason and husband Al Eason; two brothers, Jeff and Steve Wallace; girlfriend of 17 years, Bertha Russell; and three beautiful granddaughters, Saylor Huffman, Navie Eason and Madison Wethington.

Flowers are welcome, or memorial donations may be made Francescka Eason, 2852 Prestonwood Drive, Grimesland, NC 27837, or Bertha Russell, 168 Cannon Drive, Newport, NC 28570.

The family handled the arrangements.

I played church league basketball in high school and our team needed a ringer, badly. In stepped Barry. He played like Pete Maravich. He would be looking one way and passing the other way. Being cross eyed helped. He had this Plymouth 'Cuda 340 six pack and knew how to drive it. We TP'd this yard one night and almost got caught. He pulled away in that Cuda smoking the tires, with no lights on. With us screaming "TURN ON THE LIGHTS!" Good times!
