    I am the son-in-law of the late Jeannine Pritchett who recently passed away while living at my home in Concord, NC on Jan 3, 2024. Marvin Wallace was a long-time friend of my family who was loved & respected by everyone. He lived & worked in Richmond, Va where I grew up in Henrico County. Marvin could relate to many of the same things I remember about Richmond. He will always be remembered as a true friend who has enriched all of the lives he touched. I’ve been truly blessed to have shared a special bond with this kind & wonderful human being!
