Donald Lee Galloway, 80, passed away on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018 at his home in Radford, after a long and valiant battle with cancer. Donnie was blessed to have had his family at his side over the recent weeks and passed peacefully away in the arms of his loving wife.
Born on June 25, 1938, Donnie was a long-time resident of Radford, but was a citizen of the world. Whether spending time in the harsh outback of Alaska to the sunny shores of San Diego, Donnie was loved by all. Known for being an extremely talented carpenter and hardworking “jack of all trades,” he loved the outdoors and was an avid fisherman. Donnie loved to travel, sightsee, and visit places he had never been. He possessed an adventurous spirit and was up to any challenge the world could throw.
Donnie is survived by his wife of 23 years, Peggy (Pug) Galloway; a daughter, Gina Salcido (Joey) of Norwalk, Calif; son, Patrick McClelland (Cindy) of Boston, Mass.; stepsons, Ricky J. McCraw (Donna) of Lumberton, N.C. and Terry S. McCraw (Kristi) of Radford, Va. He leaves behind a host of grandchildren and great grandchildren who all loved their Papa Don.
The family would like to thank the services of Intrepid Hospice and the VA Hospital Center of Salem for their wonderful care, support and love during this journey and request that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Intrepid Hospice of Radford, Va.
After a small private family memorial, Donnie will be interred at his family home with a clear view of the mountains he loved so much.
The Galloway family is in the care of Mullins Funeral Home & Crematory in Radford.
