  • Michael P. Galgano (Brother age 96)

    Our family consited of 4 brothers and a sister born to our parents who emigrated from Italy. After Pearl Harbor in 1941, 3 of us enlisted in the Army or Air Corp and the fourth Anthony was drafted even though he was married with a child.
    James was very close to his family, sons and daughters and grandchildren and always kept in touch even though they moved to Arizona 50 years ago we were always in contanct with each other. He had an amazing memory for events going back to family outings to Coney Island and Jones beach on Long Island and was a very good story teller of the “old days”. He was always very active athletically and really did not show his age at 103 until the last few weeks of his life. He will be sorely missed and God Bless James and all of us.
