Richard Wallace "Rick" Galloway, Jr., 65, of Taneytown passed away on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at Carroll Hospice Dove House in Westminster. Rick was born on May 21, 1951 in Baltimore and was the son of Richard Wallace, Sr., and Betty (Martin) Galloway of Severn. He was the loving husband of Marguerite Eleanor Galloway, whom he was married to for 22 years. Rick graduated from Andover High School in 1969. He spent the beginning of his working career as a computer programmer/analyst before pursuing other interests. His love of photography led to a custom picture framing shop in Taneytown where he sold his photographs. A self-taught musician, he transitioned the frame shop to a music store known as "Music at the Crossroads" where he retailed music items, instruments and lessons. Later, his focus shifted to his band, "Galloway Music". As singer/songwriter and guitarist for the band, he produced several CDs, playing at venues throughout Carroll County and beyond. In addition to music, Rick enjoyed being outdoors, whether riding down the road on his Harley, working in his garden, forging steel, or swimming in the family pool. As of late, his escape was watching sports on TV. Above all, Rick loved his family¿ especially hanging out with his grandchildren. Surviving in addition to his parents and wife are daughters and sons-in-law Christine Renee and Sean Smith of East Berlin, PA, and Rachel Michelle and Micah Deitz of Wimauma, FL; brothers and sisters-in-law Clifton "Cliff" Wallace and June Galloway of Glen Burnie, Roland William and Stacey Galloway of Avondale, AZ; sister and brother-in-law Denise Galloway and Gregg Fitzhugh of Schellsburg, PA; grandchildren Delaney and Reagan Smith, Ethan and Ezra Deitz; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
