Wallace R Crosno, Jr.

March 26, 1954


Wallace “Rebel” R. Crosno, Jr., 66, of Radcliff, Kentucky, passed away on June 7, 2020 in peace.

He was the son of Ruth Cobb and Wallace R. Crosno, Sr., born on March 26, 1954, in St. Louis, Missouri. 

Wally grew up and spent most of his life in St. Louis, where he married Rae, the love of his life, in 1988, who survives him. They have spent the last ten years living in Radcliff, Kentucky enjoying the small town and beautiful country. Wally worked as a Product Tech and retired from Metalsa in 2018. Wally is also survived by his mother, Ruth Cobb; daughter, Gala Dawn Evers (Nick), and two sons, Wallace Crosno III (Khrystal) and Isaac Crosno (Sandee); six grandchildren, Sophia, Andrew, Allison, Willie, Zachary and Wyatt; four sisters, Debbie Howard (Doug), Terre Brandenburg (Toney), Cherre Dryer and Toni Brandenburg Kopplin; Father and Mother-in-law, Don and Elaine Smith, nieces and nephews; and his comfort dog, Minzy. Wally was preceded in death by his very much loved grandmother, Willie Faye McKinzie and his sister, Barbara Brewington.

Wally had so much love in his heart, he loved being around family and friends, he loved watching sports, especially football with his wife, Rae. Wally was loud and outspoken (Rae called him Chatty Cathy when they went anywhere because he did not know when to stop talking) but was a very sensitive man at the same time. He always said he had to be loud due to growing up in a house full of girls. He cherished the times he had with loved ones. He most enjoyed being a husband and a dad. In the thirty-two years of marriage to Rae, his love only grew for her. Wally was a proud man; proud of his life, his wife and all of his children and grandchildren.

Go to the place that’s the best, Wally, to the Spirit in the Sky. Go rest high on that mountain Wally.
