Mr. Roshell Wallace was born April 1, 1956 in Darlington, SC, a son of the late Willie Wallace and Hattie Mae Williams.  He resided with his grandparents the late Irvin and Rosa Williams and was reared by his loving mother and his step-father, Ishmeal Gardner.  He departed this life on Friday, August 9, 2019 in McLeod Regional Medical Center, Florence, SC

He received his former education in the Darlington County Public Schools where he attended St. John’s High School with Class of 1974.

In his youth, he was baptized and  joined Flat Creek Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Reverend McWhite.

Roshell was employed at Darlington Building Supply Company retiring after 30 years.  After retirement he worked at Doves Heating and Air-condition until his health declined.

“Pa”, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, was a loving, sweet, kindhearted son, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend.  To know him was to love him.  “Pa” loved watching Old Westerns and being with his family. He would always meet his fellow man with a smile because he never met a stranger.  Anything he could do to help you…he would.

He was united in marriage to Mary Ann Wright Wallace.
