JC had an established reputation for driving shiny red GM vehicles. JC dressed in the most dapper attire. He was humorous, affable and charming. His favorite past time was watching western movies.

Growing up, JC was the middle child between the late Katie Lee Wallace of Detroit, MI. and his surviving beloved brother McKinley “Bay” Jr. of Glenwood, IL.
