James Fornes Galusha

With bittersweet memories we announce the passing of James Fornes Galusha "Jimmy G', son the late James J. Galusha and Bonnie Lou Fornes Galusha and stepson of Troy B. Steckenrider II. Jimmy was born at St. Joseph's hospital on February 28, 1986. He was welcomed into heaven on November 28, 2012, and is now perfect, whole and complete. He joins GOD, his father Jim, Grandpa John, uncles Gary and Jeff, his aunt Judy, and his cousins Amy, Jacque, Tara and Suzie. He is now free to do all the dreams he so longed to accomplish. Jimmy lived in the Moon Valley area all his life. He lived life his way "outside the box". He was loving, witty and irreverent. He loved dirt (beach too), fireworks, remote control cars, food, music, dancing, fast cars, video games, being a DJ and women, oh how he loved the ladies! He loved to cook (made a mean apple pie), bar-b-q and eat! He was quick witted, loved to tease and within seconds he could have you laughing. He loved his family, all animals, made friends easily and always made you feel wanted.

Jimmy G is survived by his parents, his little sister Ali, his grandmother Patricia Fornes, his aunts Suzanne Accomazzo Crouse (Terry), Cynthia Benson-Naegeli (Bryan), Christine Molitor (Sam), his uncles John Fornes Jr. (Shelly) and Ed Landin Sr., great aunts and uncles and tons of cousins.

Jimmy's family invites you to a visitation on Tuesday, December 11, 2012, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, with a 7:00 PM scripture service at Heritage Funeral Chapel, 6830 W Thunderbird Rd., Peoria. A funeral mass will be held at 11:00 AM, Wednesday December 12, 2012 at St. Paul's Catholic Church, 330 W. Coral Gables Ave., Phoenix, AZ. Mass will be followed by a luncheon at Jimmy's family home.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Set Free Ministries, 1034 N. 24th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85008
