He was born on November 26, 1928 in Providence, RI, the son of William and Mary (Bellavo) Plante. Wally joined the United States Army and served in World War II and the Korean Conflict. On October 7, 1950, he was united in marriage to Norma Jackson in Rhode Island.

Wally opened his own business, Ace Muffler, and ran it for the next 44 years with the help of his sons.
