James W. Wallace, age 80, of Northlake. Loving father of Jeffrey (Michele) Wallace, cherished grandfather of Cecilia, dear brother of Patricia (Will) Waller, fond uncle of Will, Rob and Gary. Jim was a proud American and Chicagoan, a dedicated salesman, and a confirmed curmudgeon. We will miss his wit and humor, and his dedication to keeping us all on our toes. A memorial service will be held in the spring/summer at a time to be determined.
