After a lengthy battle with cancer, John David Galloway passed away peacefully in his home, among friends and family, overlooking his garden, on June 28, 2020 at the age of fifty-seven. He leaves behind his dear friend Gary Zanner of Niagara on the Lake and his two children Rebecca Galloway and Alexander Galloway (Brittany Blaker). Son of Grace and Allan Hamilton of Listowel and Doug Galloway of Shelburne. Dear brother of Carolyn and Mike Chapman of Listowel, Melissa Galloway, Jenny Bryan (Joey McCrae) and Amy (Jeff) Smith. He will be remembered fondly by his two nieces Hunter (Scott) and Jensen, as well as by his many friends. David was a skilled gardener, fiercely protective of our natural world. An excellent teacher, he showed many young people the correct way to plant, to divide, and to weed.
Always concerned for his family and friends, he remembered their life events, all while battling the ravages of leukaemia. If it was YOUR birthday, a large bouquet would arrive on your doorstep. David leaves a legacy of great beauty for us all to enjoy. We will remember him for his kindness and his gardens.
