Obituary of Michael John Galliah
It is with great sadness the family of Michael J. Galliah wish to announce his passing on Saturday, March 26, 2022, after a period of failing health surrounded by his family. Born in Saint John on July 25, 1964, he was a son of the late Stanley and Alice (Gillet) Galliah.
Michael started working at the old General Hospital at a very young age and continued at the Saint John Regional Hospital (Horizon Health) for 37 years until his retirement. Mike was a proud member of CUPE #813. Always a hard worker and a jack of all trades if it needed to be fixed or you needed a helping hand Mike would do it. Whenever family events took place Mike would always be cooking up some tasty pies for the family to enjoy. Most of all, Mike was all about family, he loved and was so proud of his son Blake whom he was able to watch get married just the week before.
Mike was predeceased by his parents; Stanley and Alice and his loving first wife; Brenda (Morgan) Galliah, his Father-In-Law Donald Morgan, Brother-In- Law Bruce Baxter, Sister-In-Law Lori Walker and Brother-In-Law Brian Walker.
