Manager (Fennville Chapel)/Licensed Mortician
Samuel John Wallace. He was born and raised right here in our lovely town of Allegan Michigan. Samuel is the middle son of 7 boys to Kent and Becky Wallace. He attended most of his grade school at Otsego Baptist Academy until he transferred to Allegan High from which he graduated in 2008. After graduating, Samuel served in the Marine Corps as Infantry Machine Gunner. Samuel met his lovely Bride Tiffany Kincaid at Gordens Funeral Home during his closest friend’s funeral. They married later that year and now have 3 wonderfully wild boys, Liam Roswell, Remington Ty, and Zebulun John. Samuel is a family man and spends all of his time outside of work with his boys and wife. After his short time in the military Samuel would then go on to work numerous jobs in varying capacities from factories, mining, road construction, pipe laying, welding, and framing. Through all that, Samuel realized his true gift was caring for people. And he accredits his talents and gifts because of his personal relationship with Jesus Christ. So, during a funeral visitation of another close friend he would pursue the funeral home and develop the drive to become a Licensed Mortician. Samuel started with Gorden and Chappell Funeral Homes fall of 2018, and after a couple months took on his apprenticeship while becoming fully licensed in the fall of 2021. His heart is to serve and care for the families that walk through these doors. This is the last place any of us want to see anyone, but having someone that you know, and trust is crucial during this season of your life. And that’s why Samuel chose to become a Mortician. So, he could serve his family and friends of Allegan County. And to be a compassionate, caring Director to patiently walk alongside our families during their loss.
