It was hard hearing of this news and I was glad to have visited Wallace on his 100th birthday. There were so many memories of growing up with the Emmert family as that is the way it was. My earliest memory was about 1950 and a picnic down on the river ranch. And I remember when Margaret was born and taking pictures that day. There were countless get-togethers and listening to his stories and talk. As the visits changed after we youngin's moved on, there was still chance meetings and drinks I had with him at the T-Room. I always learned something from him. My heart goes out to the kids, Doc, Pat & Margaret and all of their kids and family.

Wallace and all of the Emmert family have been a big part of the Desmond and Grover families. I remember my mom, Jane Desmond Grover, talking about the many trips up to the Emmert cabin in Sugar Pine, and sliding down the Log Flume and riding horses. Memories flood over as I remember family gatherings and the history we enjoyed together living in Madera.
We all will miss this very dear man and all he represented to his life in Madera, and his family and friends.
We send prayerful condolence's and love to all the Emmert family. Wallace will be dearly missed. Love from, Susan, Doug, and Don Grover

I had the honour to meet Wallace Emmert back in 2015.

Emmert was a bomber pilot of a B17G, who made an emergency landing at Oct. 8th 1943 in the Netherlands close to the place of 'Urk'.

Wallace nearly survived, getting shot in his abdomen. He was taken to Urk, and at night, the same day, to Amsterdam where he had a surgery.

He survived it all, and got back to the USA.

Wallace will be rememberd by me, his hospitable smile will stay in my mind.
