Their first son, Richard Harold Wallace, was born in 1946 before the family returned to Mackay in 1949, when Russ joined the law firm, Ernest Barry and Co., which later became Ernest Barry and Wallace. In 1972, Russ, together with oldest son, Richard, founded SR Wallace & Wallace, which today is one of the largest law firms in Mackay and continues to offer pre-eminent professional advice and legal services. Russ’s second son, Anthony James Wallace, became a partner of the firm in 1978. Russ was very well respected in Mackay and made a number of significant contributions to the community. He was active in the RSL, other service organisations and the Presbyterian Church which later became the Uniting Church. Russ was instrumental in the formation and operation of Homefield Aged Persons Home. He was also a founding director of Mackay Permanent Building Society Limited which provided services to Mackay residents and was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange until merging with Wide Bay Australia Limited in 2008. Russ retired from the practice of law and handed over the reins of SR Wallace & Wallace to his son, Richard, in 1985. As a keen fisherman he enjoyed his retirement while still remaining active in the Mackay community until his passing in 1989.
