GALANDY, Walter James (Kidd)

October 8, 1953 – Preeceville, SK
August 8, 2018 – Calgary, AB

Jim “Kidd” Galandy of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 at the age of 64 years.

Jim was born and raised in Preeceville Saskatchewan and left home at a young age for the big city lights of Calgary. He got work as a heavy equipment operator and truck driver and spent most of his career working in and around the Calgary area for Standard General and Alberta Processors. He loved hanging out with his friends and was a passionate BIKER who loved to take his Harley on long road trips whenever he got the opportunity. Jim became a Father in 1998 and a prouder Daddy there could never be. He was committed to his son, Michael and helped raise a fine young man right to the end.

Jim is survived by his son Michael, his brothers Sidney and Bill, sisters Sylvia and Lorna and numerous other friends and family.

Jim was predeceased by his Mom and Dad and his brothers Ron, Joe and Walter Galandy.

May you ride your Harley down heaven’s highways,
keep the rubber to the pavement, forget the helmet, no need for that
May the wind be in your hair, sun on your back
and always, a smile upon you face
May your journey last an eternity
May we all meet again some day on that great highway in Heaven.
Miss You Bro

  27. I’m so sad to hear about Jim’s passing.
    I worked with him at Alberta Processing. I haven’t seen him since I left there in 2008, I kept in touch with him on Facebook messenger and the occasional phone call. We always had a bit of banter, When we worked together. He was a fun guy. Good memories.
