Richard S. Wallace

"A Fallen Hero"

June 20, 1937 – July 26, 2014

Museum Volunteer Richard (“Rick”) Wallace was born in Los Angeles but grew up in Santa Monica.  He passed away peacefully in his home in Santa Monica on July 26, 2014 after a lengthy illness. 

Rick Wallace was instrumental in preparing the Museum of Flying to ready for the opening to the public on February 25, 2012 in our new location.  Not only did he provide countless hours in establishing the new Museum, he was also a key member of the volunteer staff that continued to expand and restore the aircraft and collection of the Museum of Flying.

We will miss him greatly and will dedicate the DC-3 Aircraft model in his name.
