Wallace was an army veteran, where he took parachutist training. He was one of 10 people chosen to be a member of the Queen’s honour guard when she visited Canada. Wallace loved life, and was a very happy man. He always loved gardening, pow-wows, playing guitar, eating anything sweet, bingo and VLT’s. He also enjoyed travelling, taking trips to Santa Fe, Edmonton and Calgary, to name a few. Wallace was a very humble, loving and caring man and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
