Meredith------Scott E. Wallace, 44, of 30 Waukewan Street, died at the Lakes Region General Hospital, Laconia on Friday, April 25, 2003.
Mr. Wallace was born October 5, 1958 in Laconia, NH, the son of Gerald F. & Sylvia M. (Clifford) Wallace. He lived all of his life in the Lakes Region. Scott was a dedicated, hard working employee of Pike Industries, Inc. for 14 years. In his role as Equipment Manager, he made many significant contributions to the company. More than just a manager, Scott had great respect and admiration for the people he worked with. With his team of employees, Scott initiated numerous innovative solutions for the heavy equipment used in the business. One of his most notable accomplishments was the development of a thicker, more resistant "pizza wheel" for the reclaiming machines. Caterpillar, one of the larger manufacturers of heavy equipment, adopted this invention. Scott was truly a "company man" and the employees he worked with were like family to him.
Mr. Wallace enjoyed antiquing and the outdoors.
