Obituary of Wallace W. Wimbrow

Wallace W. Wimbrow, 80, passed away peacefully at PRMC on Friday, November 2, 2018. Born on December 6, 1937 in Hallwood, VA, he was the son of the late William Garland Wimbrow and Evelyn Lankford Wimbrow.

Wallace graduated from Pocomoke High School. He worked for NASA security for ten years and received special recognition for his work there. Wallace then moved to Delaware and was employed by Shellhorn and Hill, Inc. in Wilmington, DE. He met and married Janet Denn in 1983 and they were blessed to have 26 years together until her death in 2009.

Wallace trained and drove race horses for many years and was a member of the United States Trotting Association. He drove in the Grand Circuit, as well as Rosecroft, Harrington and Ocean Downs. He had such a great love for the horses and the sport, he would often go to the races, just to watch the horses.
