William Horace Rackley, age 80, of Wallace left this earthly life for his eternal rest on Monday, December 25, 2017.

He was born on February 18, 1937 in New Hanover County and was the son of the late John William and Verdie DeBose Rackley. He was also predeceased by his brother, Wayne Rackley, sister, Alene Fender and Doris Rackley.
