On Tuesday, June 11, 2019, the Angel of the Lord extended his hand of mercy to our beloved Grant Wendell Wallop and called him from labor to eternal reward. Born December 16, 1952, he was the son of the late Floyd and Willie Wallop.

Grant received his education in the public schools of Accomack County, graduating from the former Atlantic High School in 1970. He was baptized and became a member of the Tabernacle Baptist Church, and later transferred his membership to the New Beginnings United Methodist Church in Wattsville, Virginia.
Grant was employed at Tyson Foods and Perdue Foods, until his health began to fail. A true warrior in every right, his faith and his love for the Lord provided him the strength to endure. He would start his mornings with his daily scriptures.
Grant served on the Board of the Eastern Shore Area Agency on Aging/CAA. He also served on the board of Project Head Start and the Policy Council. Grant loved children and would often volunteer at the St. Paul Head Start.
Grant was a big Dallas Cowboys fan! No questions asked! He also loved mowing his lawn and keeping his yard groomed to perfection. He loved lawnmowers!
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by four brothers and four sisters.
He leaves to cherish loving memories with his wife of forty-five years, Linda Wallop; two daughters, Alicia (Rob) Uzzle of Hampton, VA and Terrall (Rob) Collins of Portsmouth, VA; one son, Antonio (Rachel) Wallop of Greenbackville, VA; nine grandchildren, Robert, Kori, Jaden H., Aaron, Jared, Jaden G., Jelani, Aniyah, and Jade; two brothers, Dale (Lisa) of Horntown, VA and Lawrence (Betty) of Snow Hill, MD; three sisters, Teresa (Lanny) of Horntown, VA, Jacqueline (Sterling) Miles of Marlow Heights, MD, and Joyce (William) Taylor of Henderson, NC; mother-in-law, Mabel Green of Horntown, VA; two brothers-in-law, Ralph and Earl; three sisters-in-law, Sandra, Deborah, and Beulah; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
