Galloway, T.A. (Scotty) - 97, passed away peacefully and naturally with the rising sun on November 11, 2012 at Camphill VG Hospital surrounded by his loving family. He spent the last year and a half in Halifax with the company of his son, Steven (Pam) Galloway, his daughter, Cheryl (David) Murray and granddaughters, Lindsey and Leah Murray. Born in Newcastle, NB to the late Robert K. and Eva (MacMurray) Galloway, he is survived by his brother, Jack (Helen) Galloway and predeceased by his sister, Jean Smart and wife of 56 years, Eliza Pearl (Copp) Galloway, with whom he shared many special memories in Moncton, NB.

Scotty was a WW2 veteran and member of the Northumberland Lodge #17 F&AM, Miramichi, the Masonic Lodges in Moncton and Saint John, NB and the Shriner's Club in Moncton. He was a member of Mount Royal United Church in Moncton. He was an avid curler, competing with his father on the NB curling team at the 1949 Dominion Curling Championship, known today as the Briar. His active and competitive nature led to interests in hockey, badminton, basketball, golf, bowling, judging figure skating and fly-fishing on the Miramichi River where he cherished his time catching salmon. Scotty enjoyed many hours in his workshop crafting furniture, birdhouses, dollhouses and toys to brighten his family & friends' days throughout the years.

After 35 years as Atlantic Canada's best-dressed and most punctual branch manager for Snap-On Tools, Scotty – or 'Poppie' – was still always the proudest of his children and grandchildren's accomplishments. He was happiest celebrating their successes with his wife (Nannie) and spending time in their backyard as a pool-keeper for swimming lessons, birthday parties and barbeques where he kept watch from his gazebo.

Always an entertainer, you could count on Scotty for his quick wit and sparkle that made every moment shine. He found friends wherever life took him; from daily coffee with the boys at McDonald's on West Main St. Moncton, where he had the staff cooking "Scotty's Special" – poached eggs on toast – to new buddies at Royal Court in Riverview and Camphill in Halifax. Scotty's humor, charm and love will stay with those who knew him forever.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Camphill for their devoted care and attention. There will be a private family service in Halifax with no visitation by request. Interment will be with his wife, Eliza, at the Miramichi Cemetery, Miramichi, NB. In Scotty's memory, donations to the Shriners Hospital for Children or a memorial of choice would be appreciated.
