March 11, 1950 - March 6, 2014

MECHANICSVILLE — Geffrey E. Galloway, 63, died March 6, 2014 in his Mechanicsville home.

Visitation/open house for Geff will be from 3:00 until 7:00 p.m. Thursday, March 13 at Fry Funeral Home in Tipton, Iowa. Burial will be 2:00 p.m. Friday at Rose Hill Cemetery in Mechanicsville with military rites. Memorials in Geff’s honor may be sent to Bridge Bank/Geff Galloway Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 129, Mechanicsville, IA 52306. Online condolences may be shared at

Geff was born on March 11, 1950, in Grand Mound, Iowa, the son of Harold and Earline Riggs Galloway. He entered the U.S. Army serving in Viet Nam.

Geff married Hilma Jostad in November of 1971 in Preston, Iowa. He started working at a young age driving truck and hauling milk with his father; up until his passing, he was still driving over the road and hauling grain for the local farmers.

He loved to camp, boat, fish, and hunt, and no family car or truck ever went to the shop with Geff around. Once he made a friend, he stayed friends forever and had many stories to share, especially about the adventures with his life-long friend Curly. He never missed watching the Cubs play. Most of all, Geff wouldn’t want anyone to grieve. He would want his family and friends to share memories of watching the games and the races.

Surviving Geff are his children: Travis (Jodi) of Mechanicsville, Beth (Jim) Galloway of Olin, Geff (Rose) of Palo, and Phil (Nicky) of Mechanicsville; many grandchildren; 8 brothers: Earl, Jerry, Don, Larry, Roger, Al, Russ, and Jim; 5 sisters: Darlene, Rhea, Barb, Marcia, Suz, and a special friend Shannon.

Preceding Geff in death are his wife, Hilma, a sister Delores, and a brother Dwain.

Death date: March 6, 2014
