Crawford - Frederick Austin Wallace, 74, a lifelong resident of Crawford and Alexander, passed away unexpectedly at home on August 13, 2019. Freddie was born in Calais on May 14, 1945, the youngest child of Herman and Ethel (McArthur) Wallace.

He graduated from Calais Memorial High School in 1963. In 1966, he married the love of his life, Linda Sprague. They then welcomed their children, Jeffrey, Joseph, Tanya and Tracey. Through the years, Freddie was a jack of all trades, working hard to support his family. In the earlier years, he worked in the woods, but for the majority of his working years, he was self-employed doing construction work, plowing and sanding. He was known to say, “When in a fix, dial 7766”. He owned and operated Wallace’s Bus Service in Alexander for many years, retiring in 2016 when son Joe took the reins. In retirement, he had many health struggles, but his love and dedication for his family never wavered. Over the years, he has enjoyed playing many cribbage games with his family and at Randy’s Variety. Fred was a member and Past Master of Lewey’s Island Lodge #138 A.F. & A.M. in Princeton. He was a dedicated Red Sox fan (when they were winning), an avid viewer of RFDTV and the Game Show Network. However, his greatest joy came whenever he was surrounded by his family.

He was deeply loved by his wife of 53 years, Linda; sons, Jeff and girlfriend Jeane` of Phippsburg, Joey and wife B.J. of Alexander; daughters, Tanya and husband Joe of Waterville, Tracey and husband Eric of Eddington; his grandchildren Amanda, Lesliann and husband Mike, Josie and boyfriend Nathan, Jasmine, Susie, Aubrey, Lily, Jameyson and Payton; great-grandsons Michael, Goddrick, Zander and Eric; sister, Evelyn Olsson-Noddin and husband Ed, brothers Lynn and wife Margery, and Coburn and wife Norma; sisters-in-law Sherri Joyce and husband Stillman, and Jeannie Fennell and husband John; brother-in-law John Sprague and wife Marie; an aunt Barbara McArthur and many special nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.

Special thanks to Dr. Peter Wilkinson, Sunrise Dialysis in Eastport, Downeast Ambulance and Alexander V.F.D.

A celebration of Fred’s life will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, August 17, 2019 at the Alexander Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Alexander Volunteer Fire Department, 50 Cooper Rd., Alexander, ME 04694. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.

Linda and family,
I an so sad to hear of Freddy's passing. He is a true Alexander icon. He was one of Wayne's first friends when we moved to Alexander many years ago and remained so over the years. He will be greatly missed by everyone in this town, but his memory will live on for all that knew him. May your memories keep him alive in your hearts forever. I cannot attend the funeral on Saturday but you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
