John William Wallace, son of William and Jeanetta (Wiebesiek) Wallace, was born on February 14, 1942 on a farm near Roswell, SD. John moved with his family to Huron, SD, where he began his schooling. The family later moved to Egan, SD. In the mid 1950's, John moved with his family to Sioux Falls, SD. He attended Beadle School and Washington High School.

John entered the U.S. Army on February 24, 1961, and was stationed in Germany. John received an award as a sharp shooter. He was honorably discharged on February 20, 1964. He returned to Sioux Falls and worked with a sheepshearer. He was later employed at Dakota Turf and Cycle Delivery.

After John became disabled, he made his home in Sioux Falls. He then made his home at Helping Hands Assisted Living in Brandon, SD. He later moved to Morningside Manor in Alcester, SD.
