Date of Passing: Jun 29, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
Wallace will be lovingly remembered by his wife of nearly 60 years, Audrey and his children, Ken (Xiao), Keith (Michelle) and Grant (Kathi). Always close to his heart and thoughts are his five grandchildren, Michael, Jennifer, Courtney, Cade and Miles, who will dearly miss and lovingly remember their grandpa.
Wallace was born and raised on the family farm near Glenboro, Manitoba. In the 1950s he moved to Winnipeg and began working in the heavy equipment construction industry. He met the love of his life Audrey while working in what is now known as Thunder Bay. They married in 1961 and purchased a house in Winnipeg where they raised their three sons. In the early 1970s, Wallace started McTaggart Equipment Co. Ltd., now run by his son Keith.
For the last 20 years, Wallace has focused his energies on the collection and restoration of antique farm machinery, and in particular IH tractors. He was a very active member of the Rockland Antique Tractor Club, best known as the 'guy who knows everything' when it comes to IH tractors.
Wallace lived his life to the fullest, had an inquisitive mind that was always learning, an infallible memory second to none, and a sense of humour that would often leave all that knew him in splits of laughter.
We'll never forget you dad, and are going to miss you dearly.
