Kale G. Galloway, 9, of rural Waynetown, Ind., heard his family's last prayers at 6:30 a.m. EDT Friday, June 16, 2017, in Riley Hospital for Children and took flight to be with the Lord. He has bravely battled cancer the past seven years.
Kale was born in Lafayette, Ind., on Sept. 30, 2007, the son of Douglas Alan and Jessica Nicole Mitton Galloway, who survive.
Kale attended Sommer Elementary School and was active in North Montgomery Little League, Youth Football and Sugar Creek Swim Club. This was Kale's first year in 4-H and his pigs and heifer will be shown at the county fair. Kale was diagnosed with cancer in 2010, at age 2½.
Kale was a son, brother and all boy who didn't want to miss anything. He was very resilient, a fighter and seldom would complain about his circumstances. His greatest worry was for his family. The legacy this 'Little Superman' leaves behind, should serve as an example to us all. Kale faced adversity with a positive attitude, a smile and never wavering attitude. He virtually became a "community child" as he courageously battled cancer.
Surviving along with his parents are three brothers, Quinton Blake, 17, Cain Douglas, 14, and Gage Wayne, 12; grandparents, Phil and Carla Arth of Lafayette, Ind., Dwight and Linda Galloway of Covington, Ind., and Darrell and Jackie Mitton of Lafayette; great-grandparents, Christine Jones of Kingman, Jim and Dorothy Mitton of Waynetown, Walter Butler of Lafayette; also surviving are many uncles, aunts, cousins, friends and a community full of love.
Kale's family would like to thank Dr. Terry Vic and Dr. Jodi Smith as well as the entire incredible staff at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis for Kale's loving care.
A public funeral service/celebration of life will be at 6 p.m. EDT Tuesday, June 20, in the gymnasium of North Montgomery High School, with Tony DeMoss officiating, assited by Aaron Clawson. A private family service will be Wednesday at Family and Friends Funeral Home of Wingate, with burial to follow in Brown Cemetery near the family farm.
The family prefers in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be directed to #chuckstrong cancer research, Make-a-Wish or Foundation Ronald McDonald House. Visit us online to share a memory or leave a condolence at www.familyandfriendsfh.com
