1923-2010

Roger William Wallace was born on June 14, 1923 in Las Vegas, New Mexico and passed away on December 19, 2010 in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area.  The family of Roger thanks their many friends and relatives whose sympathy and thoughtfulness will always be remembered and deeply appreciated.

“I have known Roger and his family since 1996.  He was very proud of his Scottish heritage. His grandfather emigrated to New Mexico from Scotland.  He was proud of his family and especially his daughters, Sandra and Patricia.

Roger was a Director of the Clan Wallace Society 2000– 2002.  He was very appreciative of the policy which allowed anyone with an interest in Scottish history, it’s influence on America, and a belief in the principles of this society to become a member. He enrolled many members of his family as Council Members.

Roger served for 5 years in the European Theater during WW II.  He was a truck driver and participated in the “Red Ball Express.”  After the war he was an organizer for the Teamsters Union.  He started in the Western Conference and then was promoted to Director—Food Processing and Cannery Central Division.  He remained a consultant for the Teamsters Union after his retirement.

He is missed by all who knew him.  Although his health prevented him from traveling to games the past few years, he remained an enthusiastic supporter of the activities of Clan Wallace Society (Worldwide).”
