Mr. Gallaway, who was 73, died of a heart attack Thursday at Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point, N.J. He had moved to Tuckahoe in eastern New Jersey after retiring about 12 years ago as a machinist for the DuHadaway tool and die company in Newark, Del.
A former resident of Catonsville, Mr. Gallaway had worked previously as a machinist for several firms in the Baltimore area and in Wilmington, Del.
Mr. Gallaway enlisted in the Navy and served in the Pacific during World War II. He was a member of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Survivors include his wife of 16 years, the former Sandra "Sandi" Long; two sons, Michael Gallaway of Newark and Michael L. Gallaway of Tuckahoe; five daughters, Suzy Nagy of San Francisco, Margaret Eduardo of Rochester, N.Y., Patricia Gallaway of Newark, Maureen Konizers of Wilmington and Katie Blanke of Bussum, the Netherlands; and eight grandchildren.
