Wallace went to college at Keystone JC for two years before heading to the University of Scranton to finish. He enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War 2 and returned to the pro game afterwards. He began to switch over to coaching, leading the Scranton Miners (not sure what years) and the Barons. Eventually he took the head coaching job at Elk Lake HS, and had two state titles there.

Just three months after leading Elk Lake to their second state title in March of 1977, Wallace died of cancer.

He had at least one son (Jim) and one daughter (JoEllen).
