Peacefully, on Thursday, August 8, 2019, Neil Perry Wallace passed away in the Wawanesa Personal Care, at the age of 85. Born April 29, 1934, Neil was the youngest son of Perry and Lillian (Barr) Wallace. Neil leaves to mourn, his children, Kevin (Koryna), Marlene (Randy) Biles, Dean (Laura); grandchildren Candace (Carter), Brennan, Kaylene (Anthony), Justin, Ashley and Keira; great grandchildren Easton and Corbin; nephews Brock and Kerry Wallace and by numerous nieces and nephews from the MacGregor side of the family and step-children from the Frederick family connection will also share memories of Neil.

He was predeceased by his parents, brother Harvey and sister-in-law Roberta and by former wives Sheila Wallace (MacGregor) and Victoria Wallace (Frederick).

Neil had many careers in his lifetime including trucking, farming, grocery store owner, builder, plumber, to name just a few. His favorite pastime though was making friends, visiting and engaging with everyone he knew - whether it was over coffee or playing a lively game of cribbage. He could sit down with a stranger and connect someone they knew to someone he knew in a short amount of time. His family and friends meant the world to him.

Neil was born and grew up in Crandall, Manitoba and from there he lived in a number of communities including Regina and Weyburn up until 2012 when he moved to Wawanesa. Many friends and neighbors were made in all of these communities. Neil embraced technology and had great fun with his iPad games, tracking people on Facebook, constantly listening to his Stingray music and ferociously reading Westerns on his Kindle. Netflix and YouTube were also among his favorite forms of entertainment.

At Neil’s request, a private family graveside service will be held.

Donations in memory of Neil can be made to the Lung Association, charity of your choice or reach out to someone in need.

“He will live on in each of us, and be as missed as he was loved.”

We first met Neil after he & my Mom started dating. They enjoyed dancing, & Neil got Mom going camping & fishing, which she had never done before. When they married, he utilized all his many talents in renovating their house from top to bottom. To our youngest, he was the only grampa she knew. We always enjoyed the times we went down there or they came up here. After health issues, they downsized and moved into their suite on Coteau Ave. Visiting with them, many hours were spent playing cards; & of course coffee at Jacks with his cronies. He enjoyed reading & we exchanged many books through the years. He had opinions on everything & wasn't afraid to express them. He had a heart of gold under his gruff exterior. He was very proud of his children & grandchildren & always wanted to know how the step grandhildren were doing, as well. He will be missed.

Condolences to the Wallace family on the passing of you Dad. I remember when I was growing up that your Dad built the kitchen cupboards for my Mom and Dad's house (Dick & Pearl Watters). We just lived 2 or 3 miles south of your Dad's at Crandall. I remember thinking those cupboards were so nice when your Dad installed them. The last time I seen him was at Cliff and Joanne Nankivell's 50th anniversary at Kisby, SK. So sorry for your loss. Audrey Watters (Virden MB)
