George Galgano Obituary, Death – On July 11, George J. “Jeff” Galgano, 72, of Stamford, Connecticut, passed away at Midstate Medical Center. He was surrounded by his beloved family at the time of his passing. George was “easy like Sunday morning”; he was thorough and careful, and he was never in a hurry. His enthusiasm was contagious, and you might frequently find him out in the yard tending to his garden, listening to live music with percussion instruments in his hands, or taking a stroll through the neighborhood with his devoted wife Lynn and their dog Bella.
He was also a drummer. George was a passionate water skier and downhill skier. He spent over 40 years cruising the lakes in Connecticut and skiing in Vermont. George was an all-around outdoor enthusiast. He was the one who would always agree to go along with any plans that involved having fun, getting into mischief, listening to music, and laughing. He was one of those people who got involved in everything that was going on around him and sought to encourage others to do the same. His presence is sorely missed. George is survived by his loving children,
Sarah Bridgers and her husband, Peter, Meghan Crutchley, and Michael Galgano and his wife, Chelsea, all of Stamford. He is also survived by his loyal wife, Lynn Correia Galgano. Also surviving are his sisters Jane Landry and her husband Mark of Fairfield, Barbara Duesenbery and her husband Roger of Fairfield, and a sister in law Louise Galgano of Florida. Also surviving are his grandchildren Benjamin and Owen Bridgers and Luke and Lily Galgano, as well as his nieces and nephews Chrissy and Gregory Galgano and partner Christian Gabriel, Alison Darling and her husband Trevor, Katie Bartush and her husband Scott, and Christopher and Matthew Landry.
Gregory Galgano, George’s brother, passed away before him, following in the footsteps of both of George’s parents. On Friday, July 14, visitors from the community are welcome to stop by the Nicholas F. Cognetta Funeral Home and Crematory located at 104 Myrtle Avenue in Stamford between the hours of 4:00 and 8:00 PM. The burial will be a private affair.
