I have fond memories of Wallace's friendly yarns when I often bumped into him as he was out and about around Lumsden with Coco. A very kind and ever-obliging school grandad - His expertly crafted school picnic tables will be a lasting legacy, along with the shelves he constructed for the tunnel house. My deepest sympathy to his wonderful family.
Andrew Watson, Lumsden School Principal
