In Loving Memory of Anthony Galano Jr.

Anthony Galano Jr., age 84, of Stony Brook, New York passed away on Saturday, June 24, 2023. Beloved husband of Nancy for over 57 years. Loving father of Anthony III and Michael (Sandra). Cherished grandfather of Michael A. and Thomas J. Dear brother-in-law of Carolyn Vreeland and Uncle to his nephew William Vreeland and nieces Carolyn (Vreeland) Everson and Catherine (Miller) Chesebro. Tony was born in Brooklyn and was raised there until age 10 when his family moved to Elmont, where he graduated from Sewanhaka High School in 1956.

He joined the Army in 1959, served as a cook and was honorably discharged in 1961. Tony was a philanthropist for over 40 years, initially as a member of the Nassau County Rotary, then as a Board Member for Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, he organized the Annual Forget Me Not Ball for 20+ years, raising over $1 Million.  Tony came to Rise Life Services 6 years ago and was instrumental in obtaining contributions to Rise’s fundraising events.  We remember Tony as an Army veteran and life-long commercial and industrial real estate executive, who loved to help people, share stories over a meal at Rao’s, fish and hunt. Tony and Rise’s Executive Director Charles have been friends for over 21 years.
