In Loving Memory of

James "J.C." Calvin Wallace

James "J.C." Calvin Wallace, 53 of Blacksburg, VA. went to be with the Lord on Monday, October 10, 2022 at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. J.C. was born on January 24, 1969, in Washington, DC and was the son of Linda Sue Eaton Casteel of Volant, PA and the late Calvin Lee Wallace. 20 plus years, being a dependable worker, in assembly and fabrication, he earned the respect and comradery with his co-workers. For his love of music, he began traveling to concerts and meeting new people. He became adventurous, traveling to new places in and out of the United States, going rafting, camping with friends and developed a love for the great outdoors. He collected memorabilia, including music, art, glassware, and movies. Our loving teddy bear will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
