Sincere condolences from the McGarvey family. Galen was a great friend to us all when he lived in Kincardine, Ontario and we always looked forward to visits with him after he left.

Our Uncle Galen was a gracious and generous gentleman. His interest in the world made him a good companion, and he saw the good in others. We will always appreciate his loyalty and devotion to my father and mother. A life well lived!
