GALLOWAY: J. David of Niagara on the Lake

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.

Cremation has taken place. A private family graveside service will be held on Wednesday, July 15th at 11 AM. Though the service is private, the family invites you to join with them from the comfort of your home. Stream the service live by visiting www.facebook.com/haskettfh. Haskett Funeral Home, EXETER entrusted with arrangements. 

In his memory, please plant a tree or send a donation to St. Mark’s Church – Cemetery Tree Fund, Box 582, Niagara on the Lake, or the Jurivinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation, P.O. Box 739 LCD1, Hamilton, ON L8N 3M8.

Sincere sympathy to all of David’s family in his passing. We had a wonderful visit with him at his Grandma Galloway’s funeral reminiscing of good times many years ago. He talked of being ring bearer at our wedding and remembered that we had been married over 50 years. We so enjoyed seeing him.
May he Rest In Peace.
Sincerely, Howard and Yvonne Hendrick
