On October 19, 2016 Jim Wallace died in a tragic accident at his home. He was 66 years old. Jim was a Husband, Father, Uncle, Friend, and Fisherman!
Jim was married to his wife Myra for 39 years and had two children, Cliff (who was killed in a car accident at the age of 15) and Jamie, who was the light of his life. He was the "Cool Uncle" to all of his nieces and nephews. In February 1996, Jim set the Texas State record for the largest Speckled Trout weighing 13 pounds, 11 ounces, 33-1/8-inches.
He spolied our family by always having fresh fish and shrimp for our holiday get togethers!
Jim was a very humble man and would never ask for money, but now we need to take care of his family and send him off in the way he would want. When we can, we will take off to the place he caught his record setting fish down in Baffin Bay and let him go surrounded by his family, friends and fishing buddies! Anything you can do would be very much appreciated to help with his burial and numerous bills that have accrued. Prayers are always welcomed too, thanks for reading and God Bless!
