Jack was born in Jacksonville, Texas, in 1932 to Harvey and Diana Galloway. He graduated from South Park High School. Jack served in the United States Navy from 1951-1953 in Pensacola, Florida.

Jack never missed an opportunity to make everyone laugh, especially all of his grandchildren. He had a gentle spirit and a giving heart. Jack owned Heritage Real Estate and Galloway’s Pork House in Beaumont where he was known for his smoked sausage, boudain, and hog head cheese, while Joan was happily engaged in real estate.

    Galloway family, very sorry for your loss. Jack Galloway coached me in Little League along with my Dad and I have never forgotten this big, friendly man who always made you feel like you were the best kid in the world. You got a hit, he was there to congratulate you, if you struck out, a friendly voice would say, " we'll get 'em next time. I am very thankful he touched my life at an early age and the memories I have of this gentle giant of a man will last a life time...

    What an infectious laugh Jack had. Even when his jokes were not that funny you couldn't help join in his laughter which started long before the joke was finished. This world needs more Jack Galloways. I enjoyed being around Jack and Joan and witnessing a true love story. My heart goes out to the family and especially to Joan. Love you girl and love the fact that you had your friend and lover for so many years.

    My memories of Jack......lots of laughter and love.......can't think of one instance where he wasn't smiling, complimentary, kind, helpful, joking and just loving life. He loved and adored Joan and his Family. He was curious and mischievous. Taught the lessons of life by the way he lived it! Will be greatly missed!

    I have many fond memories of Uncle Jack,. But one that stands out the most is when we were little, he would take us to his meat market. He thought it was so funny to play jokes on us with those dang hog eye balls ! LOL...........it would freak us out and he would do his "notorious laugh" that we all know too well !!!! Your jokes, infectious laughter and your kind and sweet spirit will be miss by ALL !!! We love you Uncle Jack !!!

    I have great memories of Mr. Galloway. I remember going to "work" sometimes on a Saturday at the pork house when really we told jokes and sampled some of the sausage. He was a great friend to my dad when they used to "workout" at the Wellness Canter. They more or less did the same thing, told jokes and sampled the workout machines. I know he will be missed.
