Biography

Keith E. Galloway is the only child of Joseph Homer and Mildred Olive Cravens Galloway. He was born in March 18, 1951 in Michigan where he completed his elementary education. He attended York Town High School-Arlington for high school, and went on to study at Northern Virginia Community College. For 41 years, he worked with Georgetown University Medstar Hospital as an X-ray technician.

Having met the love of his life from the Philippines, in May 6, 2000 he married Zorayda D. Lao. Zorayda joined Keith in Arlington, VA shortly. Few years after having their child, Kamilla Zane (KZ) now 7 years old, the family moved to North Springfield, VA until the passing of this very dear family man.

Uncle has been known by many as a man of few words; grunts, sighs, and chuckles included but still few. As a family man, he is the one most supportive husband and daddy one can have. Beyond his nuclear family, his big extended Filipino family has been lavished with the same love and support he naturally exudes. His house and household has been a great haven for many of Zorayda’s friends as he is a very welcoming host—no questions asked.

At work, we learned that he is a quiet guy (surprise!). His co-workers knew him as somebody who deals with patients with extra care. He is almost irreplaceable at what he does. He is known to give clear and precise instructions especially when he teaches students. And for 41 years, being “late” for him is a myth. He is that guy with admirable work ethics, who rarely takes vacation leave—very workaholic to say the least—yet was still able to profoundly impact the lives of those around him, those who cared for him, and those whom he cares a lot about.

His legacy will live on in his family’s lives, especially on her only daughter, KZ. He will be greatly missed.
