Joseph G. Galgano of Dover passed away Saturday, August 24, 2013, at John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore. He was 65.
Mr. Galgano was born February 28, 1948, in Auburn, New York, to the late Joseph Galgano and Ida Rossi Galgano.
Mr. Galgano devoted 31 years of diligent work and care as a school psychologist to the Caesar Rodney School District where he met his wife of 27 years, Shari Lovell Galgano.

Always keen to learn more and to fix a problem, Mr. Galgano became a Microsoft Certified Professional after his retirement and opened his own private computer repair business in which he helped many in need. His loved ones will remember him for this love of computers, golfing, bowling, his “hot-ta-rod” silver Mustang convertible, and, above all, the countless laughs and immeasurable love he showered them with.
