Demetrius Lamont Wallace, affectionately known as "Freckles" and "Daddy" transitioned into the arms of the Lord and his Savior Jesus Christ on May 11, 2020 at the age of 46. He was born to Albert Yowpp and Emily Wallace on June 20, 1973. He was preceded in death by his daughters Demitrea & DeAsia Wallace, grandfathers John Ragland & Christopher Yowpp, grandmother's Cleo Wallace & Josephine Yowpp, his brother Kenneth KB Wallace and four uncles.

He accepted Christ at an early age. He attended Woodward High School and the Toledo Culinary Arts Center where he graduated as a chef. This was one of his proudest moments. Daddy loved to cook. He worked at several restaurants. My baby searched for years to find his perfect place in life. He was finally called to work at Detroit Manufacturing Systems (DMS). He enjoyed his job. He was in the DMS paper for outstanding job service. He was promoted to Team Leader within months of working there.

Daddy had a big beautiful smile and a hearty laugh. He enjoyed competing in the Madden football games with his cousin and friends. As he got older he became a peace maker. He became involved in the Stop the Violence rallies in honor of his daughter DeAsia, in order to keep the youth at peace with each other. He was a talker keeping everything and everybody calm. He was also a charmer and very lovable.

He leaves to cherish his memory, his parents: father: Albert I. (Donna) Yowpp, mother: Emily Wallace, lifelong companion: LaTasha Brown, daughters: K'Neshiona, Anijah, DeMeria, and Coryiana Quall sons: Demetrius Wallace Jr., DaQuan Roscoe, Delontae Winters, Rahmiere Crosby; grandchildren, Se'Maj, Houston and Se'Myrah, sisters: Linda Veley, Alberta, JoAnne and Ruby Yowpp, brothers: Quavon Peterson, Snyder Desnoye, Clarence Fisher, Cc. Veley, Ameer Wallace. His best friends of all time: DeAngelo Gott, Demetrius Nash. He has a host of loving family and many more friends.
