Wallace Wimbrow, 80, dies

Columbus, OH — Wallace W. Wimbrow, 80, died at PRMC on Nov. 2, 2018.

Born on Dec. 6, 1937, in Hallwood, Va., he was the son of the late William Garland Wimbrow and Evelyn Lankford Wimbrow.

He graduated from Pocomoke High School. He worked for NASA security for ten years and received special recognition for his work there. He then moved to Delaware and was employed by Shellhorn and Hill, Inc. in Wilmington, Del. He met and married Janet Denn in 1983 and they were blessed to have 26 years together until her death in 2009.

Mr. Wimbrow trained and drove Standardbreds for many years and was a member of the USTA. He drove on the Grand Circuit, as well as at Rosecroft, Harrington and Ocean Downs. He had such a great love for the horses and the sport; he would often go to the races, just to watch the horses.

He is survived by his brother, William “Geedie” (JoEllen); step-daughters, Patsy Hill, Nora Meeds, JoAnne Seaman, Debbie Taylor and Janet Lee Haigh Bivona; and nieces, Wendy (Jeff) Maynor and Anne (Steve) Sparkman. In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Wallace W. Jr. in 1991.

A Service of Remembrance will be held on Thursday (Nov. 8) at the Holloway Funeral Home in Pocomoke, beginning at 6 p.m. Family will receive friends immediately following the service at the funeral home. Rev. Hodae Kim will officiate. Interment will be at a later date in Gracelawn Memorial Park in New Castle, Del.
