Jay Harold Galloway, of Rosman, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Sunday, April 11, 2021, after a brief illness.

He was born May 28, 1939, to Marie Galloway Meece and Cull Galloway. He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Martha Galloway; his parents; his stepfather, Albert Meece; his brothers, Nealis (Greasy), Floyd, Lester, Louis, Clinton (Speedy), Doyle and Boyd; his sisters, Helen Fowler (Harold’s twin), Dorothy King, Louise Cody and Donna Vee Hamilton; and his stepsiblings, AJ, Jerry and Mary Jane Meece.

He is survived by his great-niece and caregiver, Erika McCall (Kris), and her children, Abby and Eli, who he loved and adored; his sister, Carol Hanna, of Six Mile, S.C .; many nieces and nephews; and a bunch of friends.

He worked at several locations doing different maintenance positions until he retired.

He was seen often getting his daily walk in on Old Toxaway Road. He enjoyed visiting and gossiping with his family and friends. He was a big storyteller (just don’t believe everything he said). He was always helping people do whatever needed to be done. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

The family held a graveside service Wednesday, April 14, 2021, at 11 a.m. at Mt. Moriah Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mt. Moriah Cemetery fund, or to Rosman High School athletics. (He always loved to hear about the sports that Abby and Eli were playing at the time).

Moody-Connolly Funeral Home cared for the family.
