Obituary of John Gallie
Mr. John William Murphy Gallie May 12, 1986 - September 10, 2016 With sad hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beloved John. He was the kind of person that would try to make everyone laugh and always had a smile on his face. John was born in Toronto but grew up in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. He spent his teenage years involved in the Army Cadet program where he received many medals and awards over the years and even went to Scotland on a 6-week exchange program. John was very proud of himself for all that he accomplished through the cadet program. John was a real life hero. He received the Carnegie Hero Award for rescuing 6 of his family members from a house fire. John was also a loving father who cared deeply for his two children, Joshua Gallie Nightingale (Trina Nightingale) and Lyla Gallie (Martine Robichaud). They will miss him very much.
