Armand A. Galea, Jr., 44, Throop, died Thursday at home. His wife of 18 years is the former Gina Appel.
Born in Scranton, son of Sally Costello Galea, Olyphant, Galea and the late Armand A. Galea, Sr., he graduated from Mid Valley High School and Johnson College with a degree in electro-mechanical technology, Much like his father, he had the gift of being able to fix anything. He was a loving husband and dad who always strived to make his wife and sons happy, proud and always smiling. He enjoyed fishing, but above all, spending time with family meant the world to him. He was quick to joke and had an infectious smile and laugh. It gives us comfort to know that he is with the Lord and reunited with his dad. He was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend who will be missed by all. His legacy of kindness and love will continue, as Armand became a Gift of Life donor.
