WALLACE, George Patrick
With sadness we announce the passing of our beloved husband, brother, father, and grandfather, George Wallace. George passed away in Red Deer, Alberta on December 31, 2017, at the age of 85. Lovingly remembered by his wife Rubie of 55 years, son Greg (Tracy) of Calgary, grand-children Tamara and Tasha, brother Alec of Vancouver, sister Mabel of Ireland, and numerous other family members and friends. George was predeceased by his brothers Adam and Bert of Ireland.
George was born in Roscrea, Ireland and immigrated to Canada in 1960. He retired from a successful business career in 1988 with Rothmans of Canada and subsidiary Beamish Breweries in Ireland. George and Rubie settled in Red Deer ‘close to the golf club’ in retirement. George was an accomplished golfer, winning many prestigious senior golf tournaments throughout Alberta in his retirement years. He will be fondly remembered by the many friends he loved to golf with.
