---- — Mark E. Galey, 64, of Fort Collins, Colo., passed away suddenly of a heart attack, in April of this year. A graveside memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 20 in Cedar Memorial Cemetery, in Cedar Rapids.

Mark was born Oct. 8, 1948, in Ottumwa, to Carl and Kathryn (Howe) Galey. When he was eight years old, the family moved to Centerville, where he lived until he graduated from Centerville High School in 1967. He then attended Iowa State University and received his BS degree in Electrical Engineering. This led him to a career which took him to Michigan, Oklahoma and ultimately, Fort Collins, Colo., where he lived for the last 20 years. He last worked for Flanders, Inc. of Evansville, Ind., traveling and working online so he could stay in his beloved Fort Collins.

Mark was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Kay.

He is survived by his six siblings, Cicely (Bob) Brennan, of Coralville, Michael (Trudi) Galey, of San Diego, Calif., Maureen (Clark) Fielding of Chariton, Nancy Galey, of Sierra Vista, Ariz., Brian (Millie) Galey, of Chicago, Ill. and Mary (Bob) Allvord, of Orlando, Fla. He is also survived by 11 nieces and nephews and six great-nieces and nephews who will miss his kind demeanor and generous heart.

Mark was a hard worker and brilliant in his knowledge of power systems. He always came back to Iowa and California for family get-togethers which he enjoyed as well as all the kids. He was a wonderful brother and uncle who would help in any way he could and will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

Services for Mark were under the direction of Fielding Funeral Homes, Inc., in Chariton.
