Robert I Galley SR (86) of Rochester NH.
Died October 23rd, 2020 of complications from Pneumonia. Bob was Born in Boston MA.
He grew up in N. Reading MA. and graduated from Reading High School. In 1961, he and his wife of 64 years, Frances Galley, moved to NH and raised a family. After a 10 year stay in Florida, they returned home to NH in 1998 to be closer to their children & grandchildren.

He completed his working career as a custodian for Phillips Exeter Academy and then the Epping Elementary school before retiring in 2005.
Bob will forever be remembered as a great provider, and for his endless jokes that you could always count on whenever you saw him. He enjoyed playing cards (especially cribbage & whist) with his family and friends.
He was an honorary chef at family cookouts and was a big Red sox fan, (but only when they were winning)
A celebration of life will be held at a later date for immediate family.

This hasn't fully hit me yet, accepting that the only grandfather I ever knew and the best grandfather there could be is gone. So many memories flood my mind happy ones, sad ones, funny ones they just keep replaying in my mind like an endless movie reel. I am not surprised by how many lives you touched over the years. How much you are remembered for your jokes and ability to make people laugh. I am always super proud to tell people how you taught me to play cribbage when I was just a little girl, especially when I'm playing with somebody and I'm continuously kicking their butt I thank you for having taught me to play so well. Although I am sad and heartbroken that we have lost you, I am also in some ways angry and frustrated as I feel a sense of guilt deep down inside. Due to the pandemic I was not able to see you as often as I would like to have and that upsets me. I am beyond thankful I got to speak to you on the phone just a few days before you left us. I take comfort knowing that you're with our loved ones on the other side and that you will watch over the family until our days come to an end where we will meet up with you all again. Bamp, I love you and will miss you tremendously. ❤️ "Jennie"

My deepest condolences and sympathies to the Galley Family. I spent many hours as a police officer in Epping in a cruiser doing patrols with Bob as he was the Deputy Chief at that time. He will be missed. Rest In Peace Bob.. Tom Poliquin
