George Belmont Galloway
On Monday, July 22nd, 2019, George Belmont Galloway, passed away at the age of 79 after a long battle with cancer. He spent his last days surrounded by friends and family, with his beloved dog Abby snuggled by his side.
George was born on September 15th, 1939 in Gladstone, Manitoba to George & Phyllis Galloway. After a brief time working in Calgary, he returned to Gladstone. On October 7th, 1959 he married Doreen Armstrong and together they raised three children, Jody, Susan & Mark, living in Thompson, MB and then Grand Forks, BC. In 1989 his health issues forced an early retirement and he and Doreen packed up home and hit the road in their RV, splitting their time between Arizona and the Okanagan until Doreen’s passing in 2004. He was lucky enough to meet Betty Hughes, his second wife, who also enjoyed the RV lifestyle. After her passing in 2015 his travels lead to Vancouver Island. Even though he settled in Saanichton, he still kept his campervan at the ready.
George was a great lover of nature & the outdoors and thoroughly enjoyed the social life that came along with being on the road. He was a true friend to all and inspired everyone he met to enjoy the best of what life had to offer.
George was preceded in death by his father George Sr., his mother Phyllis & his sister Lillian, his first wife Doreen and his 2nd wife Betty. He is survived by his children Jody (Ken), Susan (Tarquin) & Mark (Darla) and his grandchildren Tanner, Jane & Lindsay, nieces & nephews and his favourite furry friend Abby, who was never far from his side.
For those wishing to donate in George’s memory we ask that donations be made to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Palliative Care Unit. Donations can be made online at Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation at HYPERLINK “http://www.sphf.ca” www.sphf.ca .

Goin’ places I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again”
