Obituary

Raymond George Galenbeck died Tuesday, December 14, 2010, after ninety-three healthy years of life, followed by a brief illness. His passing offers definitive proof he was right all along, having claimed – frequently – that "there's nothing so permanent as change."

Born on July 28, 1917, Ray grew up on Southwest 13th Street in Des Moines, graduating from Lincoln High School in 1935. He married Marian Lora Mills in 1942, after which they spent nearly 65 years together, primarily in Seattle, Washington, and Des Moines. Beginning in 1953, and for the following twenty-five years, Ray worked as a sales representative for Anaconda Wire and Cable, a manufacturer of electrical wire, telephone cable, and power transmission cable.

Ray is survived by his three children; Susan Lora Fiterman (of Minneapolis), Scott Mills Galenbeck (of Des Moines) and Mary Gentile (of Chandler, Arizona). Ray is also survived by seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 10:00 am Saturday, December 18, 2010, at Resthaven Cemetery in West Des Moines. Memorial contributions may be made to Plymouth Congregational Church or to the Scottish Rite Park Memorial Fund.
