Obituary for Donald James Galloway

Don passed away at age 79 at his home in Newberg, Oregon. He is survived by his wife, Mary, son Don Jr., daughter-in-law Julie and granddaughter Rylie.
Don was born in Athabasca, Alberta, Canada on March 21, 1938. He came from a family of entrepreneurs, beginning with custom combining at age 9, then working at the family motel in Madras, Oregon, and helping run the family Chinese food restaurant in Newberg, Oregon in his teens.
He graduated from Newberg High School and then enlisted in the Air Force as an engine mechanic. While stationed in Germany, he became a motorcycle racer, turning professional after his discharge from the military.
Don moved back to Oregon with his son and pursued a career as a plumber. He remarked that over the years he “dug his way across Yamhill County” repairing water lines. In his “spare time”, he sold merchandise at gun shows and then at model train shows across the Western United States.
Chapel viewing will be held Monday May 22nd from 4pm-7pm and services will be held Tuesday, May 23rd at 11am at Macy & Son Funeral Home in McMinnville.
