He was predeceased by his father, Dick E. Alley and his sister-in-law, Hayley Alley.
Galen always had a love of the water and made a living from it. He owned and operated Great Wass Lobster. He loved camping, hunting, golfing, shooting pool but, most of all, boat racing.
His father's pride and joy, the Lorna R, the last boat.built by his great-grandfather, William Riley Beal, was the model from which the infamous "Foolish Pleasure" was born. In which, he still holds the racing record of 77.2 mph.
Galen dreamed big and did everything in his power to make those dreams a reality. He was known well for his big heart and generosity.
A celebration of life will be held at the Beals Elementary School Gymnasium on Saturday, January 26 at 1 p.m. As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be sent to P.O.139, Beals, ME 04611.

Wishing Trisha and family all the best. I’ve been thinking of you all, and how you have been this entire week. He meant a lot to so many lmpeople. I will be forever grateful to him for being such a wonderful husband to my cousin and stepfather to her children. Most of all, the wonderful person he was to my brother. The one person that would take collect calls from my brother when he was in Spain or anywhere in the world just to make him feel good while he was in the service. He will surely be missed. Thoughts and prayers and love to all of you during this time!

Alley’s bay won’t be the same without Galen 😓. He was so good to me when I had cancer bringing me Lobster and being a loving neighbor. When our black Lab took off Galen let him in his house and treated him like a family member, lol. Galen you were so thoughtful and sweet and will be dearly missed! Praying for his family and close friends on the island 🙂

One of my favorite people to wait on. Thank you for sharing your newspaper with me so I could read the horoscopes. Even though we both knew you secretly liked to read the paper first. That little smirk on your face the first time you slid it across the table to me and said "there ya go". When I first started there , the day the cook was late and all I could fix you was a blueberry muffin. You left me a 15$ tip so I could learn to turn on the "da.n grill". So many laughs.A few tears together the first time I saw you after Chris died. So glad that I got to know you a little. You will be missed. Prayers now and in the days ahead for your family. Fair winds and calm seas.
