Bob and Mark became fast friends back at AT&T, and in no time Bob was my good friend too. Bob spent numerous summer days, holidays and nights staying over with us at our cottage on Elkhart. Bob helped Mark on dozens of home projects or rescued us from several urgent calamities. Bob was one of a kind, and beyond his years. A gifted remarkable guy; confident and comfortable with anyone, any situation, or any challenge. Adept at fixing anything (bailed us out numerous times!), generous, chartible, very fun-loving, up for any adventure. He had strong convictions while appreciating quality & living life to the fullest. Most of all he loved his dear family, close friends, and his true soul-mate & fiancé, Jamison. Our hearts remain broken, yet thankful and full for knowing him. Bob will be terribly missed, but never forgotten...he was a treasured friend that became cherished family.

God Bless Bob....until we toast again!
❤️ Mark & Chris Strigenz

I met Bob 2 years ago at work. It was a project I was working on for my boss. I never worked with him prior. At this point, I had interviewed and surveyed about 30 or so people for the project. The project I was researching was terrible/broken. He was the only person that said it. LOL. I wrote this down on my book about him and shared it with my boss. Bob Galaska- genuine, sharp and overall good guy. If given the opportunity, we need to hire this guy. He was the only person I wrote about and shared with my boss.

My heartfelt condolences to Bob's family and friends.

I could tell you about the year Ricco (almost) ruined Christmas but saved the day by finding a bar that he convinced to sell us ten gallons of cherries for Old Fashioneds...instead I’m enclosing a treasured keepsake. March 2012 we were sitting around in our makeshift family and discussing our greatest achievements. Bob? Who dedicated his life to others, played piano for the nuns, listened - really listened, and meant so much to so many....Bob said his only skill was that he could remove a Busch Lite label from a bottle without tearing it. PROVE IT! We said. And he did. I’ll love and miss you forever little brother!!!!

Bob was a special man who always made you feel important and welcomed. I will miss his wit and passion for all the finer things in life. My deepest sympathy to his family and fiance Jamison. Words cannot convey my sadness. He will be so sorely missed.

Our dearest Bob (Rico). You are and will forever be my little brother. My heart is deeply saddened by the loss of your life. I still cannot believe this has happened. Paul and I are not sure what we will do without your genuine smile and amazing laugh. You are by far one of the closest people in my life and I don't know what to do with myself right now. The memories of us are ongoing from snowmobiling, boating, cutting down trees, working together at AT&T, going to the symphony, spending old fashion Christmas together, and bartending at our fiesta parties. Let's not forget the dance moves you had. The lawn mower, the sprinkler and my most favorite the shaky bootie. Thank you for being there for me, my family and my mother who is so broken from your loss. You will forever always have a piece of of my soul and you will forever be my peoples bro. Sending endearing love to Margaret, Matt and the love of his life, Jamison.

Bob was a good friend to my sister and brother in law, Chris and Mark Strigenz. We had so much fun with hm at Elkhart Lake. Bob was so helpful to my family and he was so much fun. We cheered when he found Jamison, the love of his life.
He touched so many people. He was a wonderful person and a great friend.

My deepest condolences to Jamison and the Galaska family. I worked with Bob for many years, hiring him into Service Management. Though I was his boss I felt we also became friends. The first year he did not use his vacation time, I told him he was going with me to help with Katrina relief work in November 2006. Poor guy was with 5 women who could have been his mom or grandmother. I’ll never forget his enthusiasm to help, and he said Gail we have to come back! So he organized the next trip in January, I was the ‘old lady’ on that trip. He taught me how to use a chain saw! But more importantly he showed how much he cared and always how much he loved life. He will be greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched.
