It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of Roy Eldon Galloway on August 15, 2020, at the age of 88 years. He is survived by his children, Robyn Galloway, Shaun (Linda) Galloway, Kirsten Gillies, Shelagh (Keith) Toyne, Danny Galloway; grandchildren, Steven, Evan, Scott (Jessica), Greg, Carolyn (Aaron), Leah, Mihret, Jesse (Iris), Kelly, Angela (Carl), Lisa, Chantelle (Eric), Elaine; and great-grandchildren, Ariana, Aliyah, Cruz, Kali, Ava.
He is also survived by his brother Elwood (Miriam) Galloway, sisters-in-law Ella Thompson and Donna Galloway. He was predeceased by his loving wife Agnes Thompson, parents Charlie and Elsie Galloway, brother Keith Galloway, and sisters and brothers-in-law, Jane Galloway, Alice (Ralph) Richardson, Edward Thompson, Stella (Clarence) Jevne.
His grandparents John and Sarah Galloway came to the Fort Saskatchewan district in 1908 from Collingwood Twp, Ontario. The Galloways have farmed in the Fort area for generations, and Roy’s and Elwood’s family have farmed together for decades. Roy loved animals, especially African wildlife. He enjoyed traveling the world with Aggie and spending winters in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and Arizona.
Roy’s life will be celebrated in a small gathering of the immediate family. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via the website www.simplycremations.com. If desired, donations can be made to The World Wildlife Fund or to a charity of your choice. The family would like to thank Summerwood Village, Jubilee Lodge Nursing Home, and the Grey Nuns Hospital for their compassionate care and support.
