About the Book

Rev. Wallace A. Evans is my grandfather who lived to be 100 years old. He was born August 22, 1884 and he died November 29, 1984. My grandfather was a man among men. I have come to realize he will live on in all of us. If I were to sum up his life in a song it would be, “I’m A Soldier in the Army of The Lord.” It is an honor to be labeled a soldier in the Lord’s army. It’s an even greater honor if your journey lasts 100 years. His dedicated life has left a profound impartation upon mine. It has been a great pleasure and honor to write about him. Old soldiers, they don’t die, they just fade away is both a poetic and prophetic way to sum up my grandfather’s inspiring life.
