Reverend Frank Neal Galley, 57, of Avonmore went to be with his Lord and Savior on November 15th, 2020. Born March 6th, 1963 in Mount Pleasant, Neal was a Pastor of Vandergrift Presbyterian Church where he served for 15 years and was a prior pastor of Derry Presbyterian Church for 10 years. He is survived by his loving wife of 20 years Amy (Brown) Galley, a devoted father to Jenna Galley and Sara Kunkle (Curt) and Pap-Pap to Charlotte Kunkle. Neal had a heart for serving people and served as president for many years on KAAC (Kiski Area Association of Churches), was the chief organizer of the Vandergrift Food Bank, held baccalaureate services at Kiski Area High School, was involved in the United In The Community celebration, was the Moderator of the Synod for the Redstone Presbytery, he was instrumental in running the 5th Quarter for 10 years, and many other areas of the local church and community. Neal had a passion for wood working and building things with his hands. A farm boy at heart, he was never one to shy away from hard work. It was just as normal to see him on his tractor as it was to see him in his office. Neal was a great and loving man. He always put other people before himself and we will miss him beyond measure. Our hearts will be saddened for a long time, but we know that we will see him again in Heaven. Neal was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Margaret (Hough) Galley, and his brother Charles “Les” Galley. He is survived by his siblings Mark (Laurie) Galley, Donald Galley, Sharon (Jim) Fish, and Linda (Chuck) Moser, his sister-in-law Brigit Galley and numerous nieces and nephews.
