Taylor Wayne Wallace, Jr., age 68, of Lincoln University, Pennsylvania, passed away on Tuesday February 15, 2022, at home surrounded by his family. He was the husband of Nancy Hill Wallace, with whom he shared 45 years of marriage. Born in Biloxi, MS, he was the son of Mary Elizabeth Wallace (Riley) and the late Taylor Wayne Wallace, Sr. 

Taylor graduated from Muhlenberg College and earned his Master’s degree from Mississippi State University. He was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, which he joined during his years at Muhlenberg.  Taylor worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 33 years, 29 of which were with AstraZeneca (formerly ICI). During his early years with the company, he worked in field sales management as a District Manager in Texas and upstate New York. In 1990 he transferred to the home office in Wilmington, Delaware, where he worked in various positions supporting sales, marketing and operations. During his retirement, Taylor joined SimDocx LLC, a pharmaceutical training and consulting firm, where he loved sharing his experience and leadership with new pharmaceutical professionals.

Taylor loved sports, and with encouragement from his father he lettered in football, wrestling and baseball at Hazleton High School.  He then went on to play collegiate football at Muhlenberg.  Not only was Taylor an avid sports fan, but he inherited a love of music from his mother.  Taylor passed down his love of sports and music to his two sons and supported them in all their endeavors.

Taylor’s happiest moments were spent with his wife Nancy, his beloved family and friends, and his dog Sawyer! Taylor was a loving husband, a great father, a hardworking man, and a noble soul who held God close to his heart. He will be remembered for his kind nature, his keen intellect, and his great sense of humor. 

In addition to his wife Nancy, he is survived by his mother Mary Elizabeth Wallace, his sons Paul Taylor Wallace and Brett Wayne Wallace and Brett’s wife Kate and their two children Boston and Brooke. In addition to his father, Taylor was predeceased by his brother Keith Edward Wallace.
