Obituary for Mr. Wallace Michael Rooney

Mr. Wallace Michael  Rooney

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Wallace Rooney on January 3, 2018 after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Wallace, age 85 years, was a very proud man and most proud of his family, especially his grandchildren.

Wallace is survived by his wife Shirley of 60 years; his six sons, Barry (Sue), Dale (May), Don (Lesley), Jamie (Anna), Norm (Armie) and Mitch (Wei); and his ten grandchildren, Megan, Alexandra, Tara, Ken, Shelby, Colton, Nicole, Eryn, Jessica and Adam.

Wallace loved two things more than anything: the outdoors and the Montreal Canadians.

As per Wallace’s wishes, his life will be celebrated at a private family gathering. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Arrangements have been entrusted to Simpler Times Cremation Centre, 332 North May Street, Thunder Bay.
