Sunday morning we lost a hero. A man loved by his community. A cop that cared about his community and every person living here. He was doing the job he loved. He was executed by a thug. These killings are happening too often across this nation.
My husband and I knew this wonderful man. We worked with this wonderful man. He will be missed. May his wife and family be blessed beyond words during this horrific time of loss. Rest In Peace, Brother.
Deputy Wallace served the Stanislaus County Sheriff Department for twenty years. He was active in his community by coaching youth soccer and refereeing football. He was also active in anti-drug (DARE) and other early intervention programs in the Sheriff’s Department that involved kids. Deputy Wallace is survived by his wife Mercedes.

The thug that executed Deputy Wallace was arrested approximately 150 miles from here Sunday afternoon.
Monday we drove the streets of our small town and saw many American flags flying, along with a huge tribute in front of the Sheriff’s Office substation. There were also blue balloons all over town. Blue everywhere. It made us proud that this community is honoring this wonderful hero.
