For anyone who knew or met him, they would understand what a caring, positive, and strong person he was. He leaves behind two children. Cst. Wallace was taken by cancer last night. RCMP from southern Alberta everywhere will remember him.

Thank You

RCMP officer remembered by community
By Sheena Read, Editor
Updated 3 days ago
"There are many, many more memorable days than this."

That's how Tracey Wallace summed up the life of her husband, RCMP Const. David Wallace, at a celebration of his life at the Nanton Community Centre May 31.

Wallace died May 25 at the age of 42, following a battle with cancer.

An honour guard of about 70 RCMP members in full dress uniform, followed by members of the Nanton Fire Department, and representatives from various emergency services and enforcement departments, marched in formal procession from the Nanton RCMP office to the Community Centre, following Wallace's casket.

During the service, Tracey, along with Mark Crawford and Corp. A.J. Mand, talked of how Wallace's life was full of laughter, adventure, pranks, friendship and a dedication to his family and community.

Crawford, who was principal at Homestead Coulee School at Hanna where Wallace landed his first teaching job, said Wallace had a joie de vivre that touched everyone around him. His talents of funny accents, juggling and quick wit, combined with commitment and an ability to be a steady influence and talent at teaching made him an excellent teacher.

Wallace was always the life of the party, Crawford said, and he and Wallace remained strong friends for 17 years. Crawford recalled that while Wallace met Tracey at this school, where she was hired as a wellness worker.

Wallace eventually became a science teacher at the Hanna high school.

"Dave's passion was science," Crawford said, and people should remember "energy can not be created and destroyed. It can only be transformed."

He also noted Wallace's courage.

"It takes a very brave man to start a popcorn fight and a marshmallow fight in my wife's kitchen," he said.


Wallace kept that positive outlook and courageousness through challenging times, Crawford said.

Mand told people who packed the community centre that Wallace had become an auxiliary constable in Hanna in 2000. He went to training camp in Regina in 2002, and after graduating from depot, was stationed in Claresholm before transferring to Nanton.

Mand noted that Wallace's commitment to the community was shown in his involvement, in teaching the DARE course, and in refereeing hockey.

He told the younger RCMP members in attendance that if they were half the officer that Wallace was, they'd be OK.

Memorial donations can be made in Wallace's memory to the Nanton Sports for Kids Fund, Box 1187, Nanton, T0L 1R0.
