Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. \n-1 Thessalonians 4:13-14\n\nFelton “Cat” Elvin Wallace, Jr., a native of Lutcher and a resident of Baton Rouge, was born on February 22, 1982 in New Orleans, Louisiana to Deborah Burl and Felton Wallace Sr. He departed this earthly life and entered eternal rest on April 4, 2023.\n\nFelton accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior at an early age. He was baptized at Israelite Baptist Church of Lutcher, Louisiana. He continued his faith walk as a member of King Solomon Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Rowdy Scott, Sr. Cat loved the Lord with all his heart. His favorite scripture was Proverbs 3:13, which says, “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.” His two favorite songs were “Your Grace and Mercy” by\nMississippi Mass Choir and “Tomorrow” by The Winans. Cat worked with the Man-Up Youth Group and attended Brotherhood and many men’s retreats. His mission was to help bring youths and others he encountered to Christ. \n\nAfter he planted seeds and completed his work here on earth, God called him home. Cat was educated in the St. James Parish School System. He later graduated from South Central Louisiana Technical College with an Associate’s Degree in Process Production Technology – Gulf of Mexico on June 4, 2014.\n\nFelton was married to his best friend, LaRita Scott Wallace, and they shared a wonderful life together. He was a loving and devoted husband and father. They raised their four children together: Jontre Kirklin, Jamarion Bartley, Jhala Kirklin, and Jayceon Bartley. He loved his children with all his heart and nurtured them to the best of his ability. As a father his goal was to teach them to love and fear God and to always stick together. He often spoke that his peace came from being home with his family raising his children, traveling, and breeding and tending to his dogs with his best friend Myron Mills, Sr.\n\nFrom a child to a man, Cat was the clown and life of the party. There was never a dull moment when he was in your presence. Even when you met him for the first time, you felt as though you’d known him your entire life. From his storytelling, jokes, dances, and real-life conversations, his love was pure and always felt. He was a giver with a heart of gold and loved the kids. If anyone was in need, he\nwould give them the clothes off his back. He often stated that he related closely to the disciple Peter in the Bible because through his imperfections, God still used him. He never wanted praise for his efforts, so he always worked passionately in the background. The life Cat lived was invaluable and can teach us many things, and there is definitely one thing Cat showed us about the Lord our God: He can pack more into the last chapter of your life than into all those that preceded it.\n\nFelton leaves to cherish his memories his loving wife and children; father, Felton (Diane) Wallace Sr.; siblings, Laquaita (Wendall) Banks, Ariane (Clay Sr.) Raymond, Aliska Franklin, Kawanda Jackson, Nicquil (Michael) Allen, Charles Cummings; sisters-in-law, Keiosha Scott, Anyaielle Adams, Givongi (Tyrone) Love, Larrion (Chaddrick) Adams; brothers-in law, Treylon Smith, Jairus Bazile, Jarriel Bazile;\nmother-in-law, Sandra Martin; father-in-law, Larry Scott; aunts, Veronica Ross, Pamela (Reginald) Moore, Sandra (Pete) Wilson, Samantha Burl-Wilson, Rachel Burl, and Aundrenee Jackson; uncle, Andre Burl.
