Wallace is predeceased by his parents; brothers Gordon, John, Howard and Douglas, as well as 4 step-brothers, and 1 step-sister. Wallace worked on the family dairy farm, and did odd jobs until moving to Alberta in 1947, where he met and married Irene Snyder, of Kathryn, Alberta. They raised their four children while he ran service stations in Calgary. In 1965 they moved to Worsley, Alberta where Wallace opened a Texaco station. During his years in Worsley, he ran the service station, farmed and worked in the oil patch in the Arctic. In 1984, Wallace and Irene moved to Nova Scotia.
