Wallis, Mr. Wallis son joined his dad after he graduated from embalming school in 1937. Max then changed the funeral home to Wallis and Son Funeral Home. In August of 1954, Max Wallis died. After his death his son J.D. sold the furniture part of the business in September of 1954, and moved the funeral home into the old home of Max and Granny Wallis.  In 1959 Danny Wallis, J.D.
