Howard H. Galarneau, Jr., D.O., passed away at age 65 on Friday, August 16, 2013, in San Antonio. He was born on January 20, 1948, in Troy, NY to Howard and Joan Galarneau, Sr. He was a High School graduate of Christian Brothers Academy and attended Siena College before transferring to the University of Oklahoma where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering in 1970 and a Masters degree in Industrial Engineering in 1972. He was pursuing a PhD from University of Oklahoma before he married and joined the Air Force in 1974. Howard was stationed at Randolph Brooks and Wright-Patterson AFB. He was accepted to Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated in 1980. He served his internship in Tulsa, Oklahoma and practiced in Rural Oklahoma following internships in Ardmore and Healdton. Howard began his family practice in San Antonio in 1983 and he also worked in various emergency rooms in Texas, especially in the McAllen area. He served as President of District 17 and as a delegate for Texas Osteopathic Medical Association during the late 80's and 90's. He also served as State President of American College of family practice in 1992. Howard loved going on medical missions to places like the Philippines and Honduras and recently received the Baptist (Downtown) Hospital Humanitarian Award for his participation. During his early years his family practice included delivering babies and in 1990 he delivered the San Antonio baby of the decade only 15 seconds into the New Year. Delivering babies had been one of his favorite aspects of practicing medicine. He treated each of his patients like he would his own family.
