Devoted father of Richard, David (deceased), Diane Wallace (husband Michael), and Alys Virzi; cherished grandfather of Brian Wallace (wife Heather), Kevin Wallace, and Talia Virzi; great-grandfather of Evelyne Swansiger-Wallace and Brendan Wallace. A genuinely kind man and gentle spirit who held no grudges and treated all with respect.

Always wanting to stay busy, he began working at Gale's Garden Center in Westlake, where many of his co-workers came to love him over the next 18 years.
