Memorial services will be held on Monday, Jan. 6, 2014 at 11 a.m. at West Isle Presbyterian Church with Dr. Bob Bullock presiding.
||My beloved husband, Al, a resident of Jamaica Beach for 20 years went to be with the Lord on Friday, 12/27/13, after a very short illness with lung cancer. Al was a very devoted husband, friend to all and always willing to help anyone he could.
Al was born in West New York, N.J. on January 22, 1929 to parents Joseph and Jennie Conod Galli. Most all of Al's working years were spent in the plastic industry in Sales and Marketing. He was a fabulous salesman who could walk into a room of 100 strangers and charm them before leaving. He loved to dance, play Mexican Train and above all, he was a fabulous "Mr. Fixit". He had the uncanny ability to figure things out to make them right. Al was always willing to try new things and go to new places. Al is survived by his loving wife of 41 years Boots Galli, loving step-daughter Trudy Atkins of Houston, loving step-son Ken Irwin (Jan) of Porter, Tx and daughter Dru Murray(Len) of Sarasota, Fla Al was preceded in death by 5 sisters and 2 brothers as well as his parents. Al served on the City Council of Jamaica Beach, on the Homeowner's Board of Jamaica Beach and a member of WGIPOA board. Al took great care of himself and had the stamina of a much younger man. Al certainly changed the lives of the people who knew and loved him. He was a member of West Isle Presbyterian Church where he served as an Elder.
Thanks so much for the loving attention given to Al and family by Margaret Lloyd, Bob Randolph, Peggy and Gil Madray, Tim Barkley, Karen and Steve Dunning, Mel Corolla and the employees of Hospice. And, thanks to all who sent cards, provided food and who loved Al.
Thanks for your infinite love, your zest for life and being such a good man. How I will miss you, love you and look forward to the day I will join you. My beloved Al who took such good care of me.
