Wallace was born October 17, 1926 in Carney, Oklahoma to James Alfred and Della (Gaither) Sadler. Right after graduating high school in 1945, he joined the United States Army and faithfully served his country. Then, on May 12, 1945 he and Billie Everett were married in Maysville, LA.
Wallace was a carpenter by trade. He loved building things and tinkering around with woodworking hobbies. He had some of the best fun working with the Baptist Association helping build churches around the country. He was one of the founding members of Southside Baptist Church in Stillwater where he enjoyed teaching Sunday school classes, serving as a song leader, and singing specials at church. He loved reading the Bible and telling everyone about Jesus.
He enjoyed gardening and was known for raising some the best tomatoes in Payne County. He and Billie would often fuss about the squirrels stealing his garden grub. He and Billie would always find time to team up with close family members and travel.
Survivors include his three children, Gary Sadler (Sheryl) of Stillwater, OK., Jim Sadler (Ann) of Ponca City, OK., and Linda Matheson (Roger) of Stillwater, OK; ten grandchildren, Christy Zambrano (David) of Arizona, Mike Sadler of Enid, OK, Joe Sadler (Lisa) of Ripley, OK, Jamie Clasby of Stillwater, OK, Michelle Mills (Jeremy) of Stillwater, OK, Shannon Renshaw (Kenny) of Yale, OK., Sean Day, Chad Matheson, and Jamey Matheson (Tracey) all of Stillwater, OK, and Brooke Matheson of Kansas; nine great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild; several nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of friends.
