RIP Michael Galloway
May 8, 1925 - October 12, 2010
Michael "Mick" Galloway 85, husband, father, actor. A familiar face on many TV series, including "The Blue Angels" in the early 60s, Michael's career encompassed more than 350 roles on stage, screen and TV.
Born into a family of Boise, Idaho lawyers, Michael was the youngest of four brothers. Following his Air Force service during WWII, he attended the University of Idaho and USC on basketball scholarships. When his athletic ambitions were sidelined by a car accident, Michael discovered his passion for acting and theater.
In 2008, he campaigned vigorously for Obama. His childhood memory of listening to Marion Anderson sing at FDR's Inauguration on the radio with his mother inspired him to post a YouTube video on behalf of that effort.
Michael Galloway is survived by wife Karen, children from his first marriage, Steve Galloway (Ellen) and Kathleen Rogan (Tim), grandsons Sean and Cameron Rogan; and brother, Robert, Michael will be remembered for his humanity, decency, intelligence and a wacky sense of humor.
GALLOWAY, Michael F.
Born: 5/8/1925, Boise, Idaho, U.S.A.
Died: 10/12/2010, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
