Todd C. Galloway, 61, of Baldwinsville, NY sadly left us on May 20, 2023 following an 18 month battle with pancreatic cancer.
He was predeceased by his father, Ronald Galloway and mother-in law, Georgianna Thelen.
He is survived by his wife, Bethann Galloway (August 27th would have been their 35 wedding anniversary) his daughters Heather Bozzuto, Hillary (Jason) Padavich , BreAnne Galloway , Blair (Brett) Crozier; Grandchildren Max Bozzuto, Emory, Kinslee, Royal, Fiona Crozier, Reece and Regan Padavich, mother Florence Galloway, brother Mark Galloway, and father-in law Max Thelen, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Todd worked as an Iron worker for local 60 for 20 years retiring in 2001 then worked as an engineer for Lockheed Martin retiring in 2018 with 17 years of service.
Todd enjoyed life the most when he was in the service of others. He had friends around the world and continued to accumulate them throughout his life. Todd loved boating and jet skiing. He was an avid fisherman whether it was at his cottage on Port Bay, Oneida Lake, or Welsley Island where he spend many years camping with family and friends. Todd worked at the Sebring, FL 12-hour endurance race for 25 years with his father-in-law. In the winter he skied with his family and snowmobiled with friends. He enjoyed his annual mancation with his Team Northern Maine. Todd made a bicycle build-for-two from bikes he found in a junk pile. It was a hit with all the kids. He once made a motorized bar stool that many friends enjoyed trying. He always enjoyed attending all the girls’ concerts and sporting events. After retiring he and Beth traveled to the warm weather in Florida for part of the winter.
Todd will always be remembered for being able to fix or build anything and most of the time he had the tools to do so. To some he was known as MacGyver, others called him Turbo, but his favorites were Uncle, Dad, and Grandpa.
Calling hours will be held on Wednesday May 24 from 4 to 7 pm at Gates Funeral home.
Gravesite services will be in his honor Thursday at 11:00 am at Riverview cemetery.
