I first met Shelly at The American University in 1967 and was impressed with his kindness, intelligence, and consideration for others. From the outset, it was easy to spot that Shelly would become a success in all fields of life he chose to engage. It was great to get together with him in 2010. The world is a better place because of Shelly Gallner and he is missed by all.

Daddy, I miss you so much. I feel lost without you in my life. So many things are not the same anymore, and definitely not the way you wanted them to be, which really hurts us. I know you are looking down and watching us, so I am trying to be the best person that I can be. Thanksgiving was so hard without you. I love you forever and ever

Daddy - Its my birthday today and I'm trying to get through the day without you. Thankfully, I have a voicemail from you from my birthday last year, that I keep replaying to hear you say Happy Birthday. My heart just hurts that you aren't hear with me. It still doesnt seem real that you are forever gone, in the physical sense. I know that you are with me in spirit, even though I may not be able to see you. The love for you that I have cannot be described in words. You welcomed me into this world 29 years ago, and I was the LUCKIEST person to have been able to spend almost 28 years & 10 months with you. God made a great decision choosing you and I as father & daughter. I miss you more and more as each day goes on. I love you.
August 20, 2013
We miss you you did so much for so many
August 13, 2013
Daddy - It has been a month since I got to see you for the very last time. A month seems so long, yet it also seems like yesterday I was sitting by your side and holding your hand. I miss you so much. Not a day has gone by that I haven't thought about you. I went to visit you yesterday, and it still doesn't seem real that you are gone. I know you are looking down from Heaven and watching over us. I miss you so much. I am doing my best to live my life in a way that would make you proud. I love you so much.
A piece of my heart was taken on July 12, 2013 and will never be filled until we see each other again.
August 10, 2013
Rest in peace my friend.

I am so very sorry to hear of Shelley's passing. The first date I went on in 1965, my date and I doubled with Shelley and his date. A memory I will never forget. Shelley was such a wonderful guy and I thought of him as a good friend. My thoughts and prayers are with Shelley and his family.

To Michael Gallner, family and friends: I am so sorry for your loss. I only knew Shelly a little through Michael and he would talk to me with kindness when I entered Michael's for an appointment. He was very kind and I'm sure you will miss him much! May you find peace some how and know he is in Heaven looking down on you. Pam Bothwell-Buttera

I was shocked to learn of Shelley's passing. My thoughts and prayers go to his children. I've known him since the 1960's at ALHS and frequently bumped into him as his kids and mine attended Brownell. He was always happy, gracious and talkative. Sorry to hear that he is gone.
Kim, Elyse and Spencer, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this painful time. Barbara Marshall Schlott

I was a neighborhood friend of Shelleys' from 1959 to 1963,living just around the corner on Sherman Ave. Shelley and his parents were very gracious to me during those years of our friendship. I'll will always remember watching the baseball game of the week on CBS at 11am on Saturdays with Shelley and his brothers at there home. Its such an honor for me to read about the accolades and achievements Shelley attained as an adult. Please accept my sincerest condolences to his wife and children and the entire Gallner family. God Bless all of you.

To the Gallner Family:
I was saddened to hear of Shelley's passing. I worked as a law clerk for him many years ago. His passion for justice was always evident. His real caring for each and every one of his clients was a lesson that I will never forget. It was a great honor to have known him. He was a bright light to his profession and his greater community. My deepest sympathies go out to his family.

My condolences to the family. Shelly was a very generous man who helped me countless times on various cases. He was a consummate attorney and he will be greatly missed.
July 17, 2013
I went to school with Shelley at Bloomer and AL. He was a friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I am attaching a photo from our 9th grade basketball team. Our team lost one game in three years.
July 16, 2013
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
July 16, 2013
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
July 16, 2013
Shelley was a very close friend for the past 35 years. In the early years we would attend a lot of Brownell Talbot sports events. He was instrumental in helping my brother with filing and getting disability claims, and gave me a lot of invaluable legal advice over the years. He was very kind hearted and had a great since of humor. I left Council Bluffs 15 years ago, but always kept contact with Shelley and would meet him for early breakfast when I was in town at the Cracker Barrel. He was extremely proud of his kids and their accomplishments. I will miss him and that piece of my life is gone
July 16, 2013
Kim, Michael ,Goose and family...Word just reached me in Louisville of Shelley's death. I was surprised and saddened. While time and distance separated us- I am grateful for his friendship and the many fond memories that I have of my dear friend.

From Washington School to Bloomer School,Abraham Lincoln to college trips. From Church Little League baseball to double dating and to our professional careers in Council Bluffs...we shared so many wonderful times. Shelley was also a very special friend to my Mom -his old First Congregational Church baseball coach and long time fan of he and Michael.

There are no "just right" words to ever express sympathy but I want to share a few...that I hope will bring a measure of comfort to each of you.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge - myth is more potent than history - dreams are more powerful than facts - hope always triumphs over experience - laughter is the only cure for grief and love is always stronger than death.

I also believe that these words truly reflect the person Shelley was in this life.

Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with each of you - today and in the days ahead.

I wish I could give Shelley a roaring send-off with a hug at the end! He was full of passion for his work and would always push me for the best. I am blessed to have called him my friend and colleague!
My condolences to the family and I know you will celebrate his life!!
July 16, 2013
I'm a current client and I'm so grateful to have found Shelley. Without him I don't know where I would be at this time. He has worked miracles for me when workmans comp tried to just throw me away. I've been so impressed with his diligence, work ethics and the kind person he was. I was so surprised when in early June I was able to talk to him. I knew he was sick and didn't feel good but he said " when can you come in and see me" I couldn't believe he was at work and took time to see me. I'll never forget my time with Shelley. He has been my advocate for three years and I'll forever be grateful. Thanks to his family for sharing Shelley with the world. My condolences to his family, co-workers and friends. His love of his family was evident with all his family pictures right by his side. His smile was mischievious and warm at the same time. My heart is heavy knowing that I wont get to see him in person but he'll never be forgotten by me, I'll remember him always!

Shelley,

You really meant a lot to me. Although I don't think you were trying to most of the time, you really taught me a lot and helped me to become the man that I am today. Some times you could be very intimidating but you were kind and generous. I have always looked up to you and wanted to be more like you. Just because you are gone doesn't mean that you are forgotten. There are many people who's lives you touched that will continue on being the great people they are because of you. You were able to leave us a proud man, husband and father. You raised two great kids that will go on to honor your legacy and live by the lessons that you taught them.

I am sorry that I couldn't be there today but I am thinking about you.
July 16, 2013
As this saddening day has come, we are here to always respect and carry on the friendly as well as the legal aspects of your life. We will be standing strong to the values you have taught us all. You are in the Lord's Hands now. You must have been needed up there for some great case that only you could handle. Carry on my friend and you and your family will always be in our Hearts. So on this day may you rest in peace my dear friend and watch over us, as you always have. When I see a rainbow I will always think of you, as you always said there is a rainbow at the end...
July 16, 2013
To the Gallner Family
You all can be so proud of such great man that has touched so many lives. Your memories will be with you always. Our sympathy to you all.
July 16, 2013
I spent time with Shelley on just two occasions, once in Iowa City for an appointment, and once over dinner in Omaha with his brother, Mike. Both times revealed a man who adored his family, loved his profession, embraced life, and was grateful for his place in the world. In 5 minutes, I felt as though I had a friend for life. What an honor and a joy it was to know you.
July 16, 2013
Shelley's Cracker Barrel breakfast group will miss him dearly! He always added a spark, a good laugh, and regular updates and analysis on Bluejay basketball. He was a good man!
July 16, 2013
It was more than 20 years ago when I first met Shelley. I never felt equal enough to call him by that name, but he insisted. He took on a case for me, at the lowest time in my life. He won my case, as if he had any doubt. I'm so very grateful for his work ethic and diligence for me. I would stop in the office in later years. He would stop taking calls as I showed him photographs of my ever growing family. He would get the biggest smile and grin on his face, as he looked at the photographs and heard the backgrounds of each child. It was great to see him and his family at Creighton basketball games. Love
July 16, 2013
Shelly was wired to be fair, honest and caring. He was always willing to help or discuss an issue. A real fighter for justice with a big heart. I will miss him.
July 16, 2013
Our deepest sympathy to Shelley's family on their great loss at this time. Too sad, too young. We watched Shelley grow up in Co. Bluffs. We were family friends. Maynard has known Esther, Shelley's mother, since she was five years old. She was a fine lady.

O G-d, full of compassion, Who dwells on high, grant true rest upon the wings of the Divine Presence, in the exalted spheres of the holy and pure, who shine as the resplendence of the firmament, to the soul of Sheldon Gallner who has gone from this world; may his place of rest be in Gan Eden. Therefore, may the All-Merciful One shelter him with the cover of His wings forever, and bind his soul in the bond of life. The Lord is his heritage; may he rest in his resting-place in peace; and let us say: Amen. And, let us also say, thank you G-d for the good he did on this earth as a fine attorney and human being.

July 15, 2013
My most sincere condolences to Shelley's family. He was a good friend and an excellent lawyer. He is missed.
July 15, 2013
I have known Shelly since he first became a lawyer in Council Bluffs.My first boss was Hugh Finerty and Hugh left the City Attorney job to be partners with Mike and Shelly. That left an opening for me in City Hall.Shelly was always honest and straight forward in his legal dealings with me and always willing to offer legal advice in the work comp area when I had questions.He will be greatly missed by the legal community in Council Bluffs and the state of Iowa.
July 15, 2013
With all of my sympathy to the Gallner family at home and at work. My office handles Insurance claims in which a number of us would battle matters out with Shelly all the time and had a ball of fun. The best fun was talking to him about the days when he wrote his book and his tennis whites on the back of the book jacket. He always was a very fair and just petitioners' attorney and will miss him a lot.
July 15, 2013
Shelley: We will all miss you. The people of the state of Iowa will miss you the most because you were tireless in your representation of those that needed it the most. Marc Humphrey
July 15, 2013
My sympathies to the Gallner family. I knew Shelly and Steve Perlis from working at Howard Johnsons back in the 60s when I was home from college and they were still in high school. We learned a lot from each other, Once,I went to temple with them, and they went to Catholic Mass with me. Shelley will be missed...one in a million type guy.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Shelley's family and friends. I always looked forward to defending cases with Shelley on the other side. He was a great lawyer, but was still able to be friendly and just chat. I will greatly miss working with him.
July 15, 2013
So sorry to hear about Shelley. He represented me and believed in me and my case when no one else did. I will forever be grateful for what he did for me. May he rest in peace.
July 15, 2013

July 15, 2013
My life has been greatly influenced by two quiet giants named Shelly. My father, Shelly Harris and my friend, Shelly Gallner. Both were kind and gentle men who loved their families and friends more than words can describe. Both were exemplary mentors, inspirations and role models in my personal and professional life.

Spencer, you must know how proud your father was of you. I can assure you that he will always be there for you in everything you do. Don't ever hesitate to ask him a question. He will always provide the right course and answer. He is buried so deep inside you that you will constantly feel his presence. Please be certain to come visit me any time you need advice or just to reminisce.

Elyse, a father's love and affection for his daughter is manifest and beyond description. Shelly's life was renewed and his spirit re-kindled when you came to work in his office, his second home. I am certain that you know what it meant to him to have you share that part of his life with him. He bragged incessantly on how hard you worked and what a great job you were doing. I was impressed with your expressions of affection in the last year and saw a great level of maturity in your caring in Shelly's last year. Thank you for bringing that peace to my friend.
July 15, 2013
Shelley was a tireless and zealous advocate. May His Memory Be Eternal!!

July 15, 2013
As an opposing counsel, and thereafter as a co-counsel, Shelley was truly one of a kind. Always the enterprising and colorful counsel, and the friend. Shelley will be sadly missed.
July 15, 2013
Shelley was a very good attroney and I will miss him very much. I have great respect for his abilities as a attrorney and have worked with him over 15 years. My heart goes out to the family and they are in my thoughts and prayers.
July 15, 2013
Shelley was a very closed and good friend. We shared a lot of laughs and jokes throughout the last many years. Jeanne and I will miss him dearly.
July 15, 2013
Some of the most fun cases I ever worked on were with Shelly. We had a great time as adversaries. I admired his work for his clients. He will be missed by our profession.
July 15, 2013
I defended several workers compensation cases with Shelley on the other side. Shelley was always a gentleman, and of course, a very fine lawyer. He was a good person and will be missed.
July 15, 2013
I'm very sorry to see this and send my condolences to his family. I've had a number of cases against Shelley over the years, and found him a delight to work with and nothing but a true professional. While Shelley represented each client with the utmost zeal, he also treated opposing counsel, and the legal process as a whole, with dignity and respect.He will be truly missed.
July 15, 2013
I am sending condolences to Shelly's family, colleagues, friends, and acquaintances. I knew Shelly and his family because my parents, Chick and ida Perlis, were close friends with his (and Mike and Gary's) parents growing up.

I am not at all surprised to see all the praise (and sorrow) contained in other postings. He was a very good man and will be greatly missed. As with many great people, he left us much too soon.
July 15, 2013
Shelley was a good friend and neighbor from sixth grade through high school. I have so many fond memories of those days. So glad I got to see him at our reunion last summer.Jeannie Christensen
July 15, 2013
Shelley was always kind and generous to me. He was a good man and a good lawyer. I will miss him very much.
July 15, 2013
I defended several workers compensation cases against Shelley. I won some, he won most. He was a great lawyer! I have much respect for his abilities as a lawyer, and great admiration for his abilities as a man. He will be greatly missed.
July 15, 2013
Sorry to hear about Shelley. I know he was the kind of person that helped the community and not many people knew. There is never enough people like Shelley, which makes it a even bigger loss.
July 15, 2013
Daddy- As the days go by I miss you even more. I miss your voice, holding your hand, and just being with you. Mom, Spencer, and I will get through this together. I wish I could have one more day with you. You left such a tremendous legacy to our family, I promise we will strive to carry on everything that was important to you: love, morals, success, respect, the list could go on and on. You instilled such great values and taught us all what courage truly means. You fought one hell of a battle. My only peace with you being gone is that you are not in pain anymore. I pray that you are having the time of your life reuniting with grandma & grandpa. I love you.
July 14, 2013
"Shelley" Was the first person through my doors at 6 am everyday but Sunday for over 10 years. He was followed by Ed, Lloyd, Rick, John, Fritz, and sometimes Francis. Over the years I grew pretty close to Sheldon, programing his new cars or smart phones. I will miss him dearly and so will the rest of the staff at Cracker Barrel. Rest in peace Shelley.

In his generosity, kindness, and sense of responsibility to family, friends and clients, Shelley was truly larger than life. And through his wonderful family- Kim, Elyse and Spencer, and all of us who loved him, he will also be larger than death, because every time we are faced with a choice in life and choose to act in the kind, generous and responsible way that he lived his life, Shelley will be there cheering us on. May G-d bless his soul, his family and all of those who must now go on without our wonderful friend Shelley. I will always treasure the special friendship and wonderful times we've had since our college days at AU. With love and condolences to all the Gallners and all who hold Shelley in their heart.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Shelly's family. He was a fantastic person and a wonderful friend to my father (Russ) and Susan Giller (both college friends from AU). I am sure Shelly is up in heaven enjoying an amazing meal and looking forward to a round of golf. He will be missed by all that knew him. RIP Shelly.

When I was injured on the job, I contacted Shelley. When a teenager, Joe & I would go to their house to shoot hoops. To me, it was a slam dunk to call him to represent me, when I started getting push back from my employer. Shelley represented me not only as a client, but a friend. God Bless.

It feels like I lost a brother. A 45-year friendship. More laughs than I had a right to share. Always talk of Family, and Shel's pride in you. A gifted, tenacious and caring Lawyer. A sports nut, who could go on and on about Creighton or the Celtics or the Yankees or whomever. An inveterate tinkerer on the golf course, always the optimist, always thinking he had found the Answer for his golf swing. The most generous, self-effacing Friend I ever will have. Shel and Shel's lessons will be with me always. Always. Thanks again and forever, Brother. Love, Russ

I always remember having Shelley and Mike as our neighbors and childhood playmates during elementary and Jr. High school in the Oakland Avenue neighborhood. Mike and Shelley were both very warm & kind guys who enjoyed participating in our childhood fun activities.
I am so very sorry for your loss. My heart breaks for each of you.
My deepest condolences to Shelley's wife, son, daughter, Mike, Gary, and their families, as well as your entire family and all his many friends as well!
May you always find peace and joy in the fantastic memories you have shared with Shelley through the years!
Again, my deepest sympathies to each of you.
Sincerely,
Kathie Poulos Schweiss

Daddy - I will never forgot one of the last things you said to me, "I love you so much." I also love you more than you'll ever know. I am so lucky to have had you as my dad. You were the absolute best father anyone could have had. I know you are watching over me, and will always be with me. Thank you for always being supportive of me. I promise that as I go on in life, I will do my best to make you proud. I hope I can be as successful of a person as you were. You were the greatest man I have ever known. I love you. You will always be in my heart.
