George J. “Jeff” Galgano , 72 , of Stamford passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on July 11 at Midstate Medical Center. George was “easy like Sunday morning” he was meticulous and careful, and never rushed. His energy was contagious and he could always be found listening to live music with percussion instruments in hand, out in the yard watering his garden, or walking around the neighborhood with his beloved wife Lynn and their dog Bella.
George was both an avid downhill skier and water skier who spent over 40 years boating around the lakes in CT., and skiing the mountains of VT. He was always the one to go along with any plans that involved fun, mischief, music, and laughter. He was an active participant in life and tried to get everyone else around him to join the fun. He is greatly missed.
He was born in Bridgeport on October 10, 1950 to the late George and Agnes Roth Galgano.
George is survived by his devoted wife, Lynn Correia Galgano, his loving children, Sarah Bridgers and her husband, Peter, Meghan Crutchley and Michael Galgano and his wife, Chelsea, all of Stamford. 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 FL, as well his grandchildren, Benjamin and Owen Bridgers and Luke and Lily Galgano and nieces and nephews, Chrissy and Gregory Galgano and partner Christian Gabriel, Alison Darling and her husband, Trevor, Katie Bartush and her husband, Scott, Christopher and Matthew Landry.
