RICHARD A. GALGANO Richard A Galgano, age 68, left this life on Sept. 11, 2012 to be reunited with the love of his life Linda, in heaven following a brief illness. Richard is predeceased by his father Albert, mother Mary and brother Robert. Richard is survived by his beloved children, daughters Allison and Bonnie, and his son Jesse. While there are many proud accomplishments in his life, it was his role as a grandfather to Valery 18, Liam 15, Iyanna 7, and Amina 3, that filled him with the most joy. An avid lifelong fisherman, Richard could always be found near the water. A Veteran of the US Navy, Richard traveled to both the Arctic Circle and Antarctica as part of "Operation Deep Freeze". Richard was a patriotic citizen, who could be counted on to conduct a fierce political debate. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St Peters Catholic Church, Lady's Island at 10:30 am Monday, September 17, 2012. Cremation and interment at a future date. In lieu of flowers, as a final honor to Richard, all interested are encouraged to register and vote, this November, preferably Republican.
