Victor Peter Galdes, 78, of Fairfield Glade, passed away Sept. 25, 2013, at home due to heart failure. A mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 7, at St. Francis of Assisi (Fairfield Glade), with a memorial celebration to follow in Michigan at a later date.
Born and raised with his sister, Mary, and brother, Charles, in Michigan, he attended the University of Detroit and obtained a degree in mathematics with a focus on engineering and philosophy. Mr. Galdes spent the bulk of his career working for the Jervis B. Webb Company in both Michigan and California as a detailer, a designer, an estimator and contract sales manager, and traveled the country and world during his employment. In his younger days, he was "tall, dark and handsome" with a quick wit and hustled more than his share of games at the local pool hall. A passionate bowler, he once rolled a perfect game of 300 and he was an expert card player, excelling at pinochle, poker and euchre – a game he played many times with family and friends over the years.
Mr. Galdes married his high school sweetheart, Loretta, in 1955, and together, they raised four daughters, Lynn (Mark), Julie (late Richard), Jean (Nathan) and Jennifer. He was a proud grandfather to Stephen, Alex, Richie, Ryan, Jack and Adam.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the American Heart Association.
Hood Funeral Home and Crematory, LLC (www.hoodfuneralhome.com) was in charge of the arrangements.
