Wallace was a member of St. Paul's Catholic Church in Kenmore and its folk-singing group.
He and his wife, the former Karen A. Strauch of Jacksonville, were married for 26 years.
Besides his wife, survivors include three daughters, Kristina and Carrie, both of Buffalo, and Amy of Jacksonville; his mother, Eleanor R. of Allentown, Pa.; two sisters, Dianne MacDonald of Emmaus, Pa., and Laura Warner of Bethlehem, Pa.
