Eugene Richard “Doc” Wallace, Jr., PhD, died on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, following a short illness. Wallace is survived by his son, Michael John, of Charlton Heights, and three grandchildren: Ariel Wallace, Sera Keeney-Wallace, Edward Keeney-Wallace. He is preceded in death by his parents, Eugene Richard, Sr., and Georgia Dummitt, and two sons: Steven and Andrew.
An Episcopalian by faith, “Doc” made a lifelong study of eastern religions and martial arts, becoming a specialist in Reiki, and earning a 4th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. His eclectic interests included eastern medicine, electronics, country music, films, and his Christian faith. Known to his friends as “Doc,” Wallace was a well-known TV and radio personality in the region, hosting numerous radio broadcasts, and serving as a recording engineer for a variety of local artists.
He was proudest of his educational accomplishments. A member of the Greenbrier Military Academy Class of 1965, Wallace went on to earn degrees in Industrial Management (BS, WV Tech), Industrial Engineering (MS, WVU), Psychology and Psychoneuroimmunology (MA, UHS), and Integral Human Studies (PhD, California Institute for Human Sciences), and was a long-time member of Mensa International.
A private burial will be held at Highlawn Memorial Park, where Wallace will be laid to rest with his family.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Southern West Virginia in his honor.

I never met Doc Wallace but he was a friend to me online. He was such a wonderful person. He encouraged me and bought some of my original art. I will never forget his genuine kindness. Doc, May your spirit be free, light and happy on the other side. You will be missed.

Doc was greatly loved and admired among a group of far-flung poets who met while taking an online poetry class through the University of Iowa. Condolences to all of his friends and family.

Doc Wallace was a special friend. We miss Doc's gentle, good-natured presence, and his dedicated and competent editing of Mensanear, the newsletter of the West Virginia chapter of American Mensa. Doc was such an amazingly prolific poet that last year the Executive Committee created a new title for him, Poet Laureate of Vandalia Mensa. We send condolences to Michael John and his family.

I got to meet Doc via Mensa. He was a very smart and funny man. Very insightful, and will be missed.
