BOWLING GREEN: Scott Gallaway, age 39, passed away in Bowling Green, Ohio after a lengthy struggle against cancer. He is survived by his wife Elizabeth Nachbar Gallaway; his daughter Etta (11); his father Alan; sister Jennifer, and brother Jonathan. He was preceded in death by his mother, Marilyn (Hartung) Gallaway.
Scott grew up in Mansfield, Ohio, and graduated from St. Peter's Schools in 1991. He graduated with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from BGSU in 1995, and from Wichita State University with a Master's of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in 2000. Scott was an accomplished writer and prize-winning poet, and was published in literary journals across the U.S. He was a dedicated instructor of writing composition at BGSU for 12 years.
Scott will be remembered for his remarkable talent with words and for his clever story telling. No one who knew him will forget his passion for the obscure, his weakness for circus peanuts, and his love of poetry. More than anything he was an extraordinary father and husband.
A celebration of Scott's life will be held on Saturday, November 24th at Simpson Garden Park, 1291 Conneaut Ave. in Bowling Green, Ohio. The family will begin receiving friends at 3:00. The service will be held at 4:00, and a reception will follow.
