Saddened to learn of the passing of Cy, he was truly a main fixture of the town of Bolton/ Caledon. He was a pure talent that created the town’s flag for its centennial celebration in 1972. Cy also produced a heritage collection of the old core of Bolton’s buildings that some of were lost to fire such as the Queen’s hotel, the Hickman street arena and the Albert street public school. Others were in the collection as well. May he Rest In Peace.
John M Downey

Why can’t we find more politicians like Cy Wallace? Smart, friendly, compassionate, never offended, and honest to the core. Cy always had a twinkle in his eye and real sense of humour. He had many artistic talents and was probably one of best graphic artists around, Cy’s love of people and his town were an example to follow. We feel a sense of personal loss and so does Bolton. We send our condolences to Ruth and the Wallace clan.

Ruth and family….. sympathy and many hugs to you all as you grieve the passing of Cyril ‘Cy”. Such a lovely human being and sweet man. Cyril was my mom’s first cousin and our family has spent many wonderful moments with the Wallace family and although a distance apart were always connected with love.
As a child we always went to Bolton to Uncle Adam and Aunt Olga’s to visit on Good Friday. She would call the family and they would come if they could. It is a wonderful memory.
He is the end of a wonderful era! Another angel in heaven…….Hugs

What a wonderful thing to be remembered for. Hoping the messages of love and appreciation of Cy give you comfort during this difficult time. My sincere condolences. Jennifer D’Amico
Dear Ruth and family, sincere condolences in your loss of Cy.
Many years ago he gave me some beautiful variegated grass from his garden. I think of him every time I give it a drink of water. It was a privilege to have known him over many years. What a thoughtful, kind, descent human being, remembered with affection.

So sorry to hear of Cy’s passing. It was a pleasure growing up in Bolton with the Wallace Families. Cyril was so involved with the community he will certainly be missed.

Beth (Moffatt) Creighton
Dear Ruth and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Cy at my first job as a graphic designer at the Bolton Enterprise in 1988-89. The work ethic he instilled in me at the young age of 18, is something I still carry with me every single day of my career as a designer. He was a wonderful, kind and patient man who taught me so many great things and I will remember him fondly.
My sincere condolences,
Dear Wallace family,
We’re saddened to learn of Mr Wallace’s recent passing. He was a prominent pillar of the community in so many ways and a positive role-model as a dad to many of us growing up in the Connaught, Jane, Nancy,King streets neighbourhood. Our condolences to you all and may your wonderful memories of your husband/dad/grandfather help you all in your bereavement.
