Obituary of Doug Wallace
July 11, 1950 - Calgary, Alberta
September 6, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta
Doug Wallace of Calgary, AB, passed away on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, at the age of 72 years.
Doug was born in Calgary, AB, on July 11, 1950. He attended Crescent Heights High School and graduated from the University of Calgary with a degree in Bachelor of Commerce. Doug worked as a tax accountant for several oil and gas firms over the years. He was a proud member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada).
Doug valued his time at the Calgary Winter Club. He enjoyed beating his friends at bowling and teaching his granddaughters how to skate and swim. Doug accomplished much through his life and was particularly proud of seeing his daughters and granddaughters grow up to become the people they are today. He loved coffee dates with family, playing backgammon with his cousin Rick Schneidmiller, and catching up with dear old friends.
His favourite movie was Young Frankenstein, and he loved to quote it. So, say “Walk THIS way”, and then do a silly little walk to make yourself smile today. Doug would love that!
Doug is survived by his two daughters, Erin Walsh, and Jillian Wallace, both of Calgary, AB; and two grandchildren, Danielle Walsh, and Brianne Walsh, both of Calgary, AB. Doug is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Robin Wallace and Lorin Hesse of Shelburne, NS; two sisters and one brother-in-law, Linda Wallace of Carleton Place, ON, and Kathy Wallace and Perry McIsaac of Calgary, AB; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Doug was predeceased by his mother Eileen Wallace (nee Gerlitz), and father Robert Ryrie Wallace.
