Paul James Gallagher


Paul was born April 9, 1949 in Toronto Canada and passed away March 5, 2020 in Sun City, AZ.

As a young child, he moved with his family to California where he stayed and earned a bachelors in political science. About 25 years ago, he and Donna Gallagher, his wife at the time, moved their family to Arizona where he served his community through his home renovation business, House Doctor.

Paul never knew a stranger and enjoyed spirited conversation with whomever would participate.

His favorite past times included flying as a licensed pilot, golfing, and camping. He loved traveling and camping with his partner Barb “B” Nevidomsky and his “Farcer” group. He was especially proud of and enjoyed time with his daughter, Karen Upton, her husband Paul, and granddaughters, Devyn and Kierstyn all of Oklahoma.

Paul was preceded in death by his brother, John, and is survived by his sisters Jill Palozzi (John) and Christy Mayo (Dave), both of California, and several nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be Tuesday, March 10, at 3 P.M. at Palmbrook Country Club, 9350 W. Greenway Rd., Sun City, AZ. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network,
