David R. Galloway

David R. Galloway was a remarkable man whose life was filled with passion, dedication, and love for his family and friends. Born on September 19, 1957, to William Galloway (deceased) & L Fern Galloway (deceased) in Philadelphia, PA, Dave's journey was one defined by perseverance and an unwavering commitment to his loved ones. 
 
After meeting his high school sweetheart Susan at Bensalem High School, Dave graduated in 1975 and went on to pursue his academic aspirations at Penn State University. In 1979, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, marking the beginning of a distinguished career that spanned over four decades. 
 
Dave's professional journey was nothing short of impressive. In 1979, he started his career at Rage Engineering as an electrical engineer. He eventually moved onto other firms throughout his career of professional engineering, ending in his career with Flexlink Systems in 2021. Throughout his career in Engineering and Project Management, Dave undertook numerous projects worldwide, including installations for Amazon, Tesla, Apple, and P&G. His expertise and leadership left an indelible mark on the industry. 

 
After graduating from Penn State, Dave married Sue in 1979. They moved to a small farmhouse in Ottsville, PA and went on to build a new home in Kintnersville, PA, where they lived until 2016. They raised their three children, Emily, Amber & Jesse in Kintnersville gathering many friends over the years. As time went on, the home became a small farm with a barn, garden, fruit trees, and a variety of animals.  

 

Their summers were often spent camping on the Chesapeake Bay with friends and families, creating cherished memories that would last a lifetime. His enthusiasm for boating, fishing, camping, and crabbing was unparalleled. The brackish water of the Chesapeake Bay held a special place in Dave’s heart until the day he died.  

 
The Galloway family's tradition of holding Pig Roasts in Pennsylvania showcased Dave's knack for bringing people together and creating lasting bonds with friends and family.  He was always eager to lend a helping hand or share his skills with others. Whether teaching his children essential life skills or working on various DIY projects, Dave's selflessness and supportiveness knew no bounds. 
 
Dave's vibrant personality shone through in everything he did. His love for his family was unconditional, and he always strived to ensure everyone around him was happy and well-cared for. His ability to tackle any challenge head-on earned him the reputation of a problem solver who could fix anything—a true jack-of-all-trades. 
 
In 2016, Dave embarked on a new adventure with Sue and their daughters' families as they relocated to Harrison, Idaho. Together, they transformed 44 acres of raw land into a three-family homestead near Lake Coeur d'Alene—a testament to the family's determination and vision. 
 
Tragically, on March 28th, 2024, Dave passed away unexpectedly due to heart failure. He leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and enduring memories that will be cherished by all who knew him. 
 
Dave is survived by his loving wife Susan; devoted children Emily & Richard Renn, Amber & Kevin Loewe, Jesse & Miranda Galloway; grandkids: Kaylin, Aubrey, Isaac, Caleb, Bristol, Carter, Cecilia, Annabelle, Macie, Brennan, and Grayson; caring sister Ann & Ted Artman; faithful companion Jake (dog), along with a host of other relatives and friends.  
 
As we bid farewell to Dave Galloway—a loving husband, father, brotherand friend may we find solace in the memories we shared with him and carry forward the values he held dear. Rest in peace dear Dave; you will forever hold a special place in our hearts. 
 
The family will be holding a private celebration of life.
