Leland Carlson-Wallace

Leland Keith Carlson-Wallace died Dec. 27, 2013, after a long struggle with amyotropic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Born March 12, 1944, to Lloyd and Ethel Wallace, in Princeton, Lee grew up on a farm, graduating from Princeton High School in 1962. Lee worked for 30 years for the county surveyors office, Stearns County, retiring in 2000 as the department head. Following retirement, Lee became a gunsmith, finally doing what he really wanted to do. He spent his retirement years traveling throughout the western United States hunting, camping and exploring the states, before settling in Sun City West, Arizona.
In addition to his present wife of 24 years, Lucinda Carlson-Wallace, Lee is survived by first wife Carol (Neske) Wallace, three children: Lloyd (Darla), Jaime Yang (Jeff), Emily Campbell (Chad), and four grandchildren: Cooper, Teagan, Andrew and Hannah. He is also survived by three brothers: Clifford (Betty), Jerry (Ann), and Robin (Barbara) Wallace, and three sisters: Mary Ellen Peterson (Roy), Judy Buisman, and Gayle DeBoom (Bob). He was preceded in death by his parents and four siblings: Lorraine James, Jeanne Scofield, Marvin Wallace, and Glenn Wallace.
As Lee requested, there will be no services. The family suggests memorial donations be sent to Hospice of the Valley, Phoenix, Ariz., or the ALS Association (MN/AZ chapter).
