Thomas Roy Galbraith, aged 68, of Eustis, passed away on Wednesday, July 3, 2024. Tom was born in Chicago, Illinois to George Hartford Galbraith and Lorriane Angeline Galbraith. He graduated from Ferris State University with a degree in electronics and worked for many years as a welder. Tom enjoyed the great outdoors - including fishing, gardening, and kayaking. In 1979, Tom and a crew of four friends sailed a 42-foot sailboat from Ireland to Bermuda, down through the St. Lawrence Seaway, and back home to Michigan. In 2012, he moved to Bradenton and made Florida his home. Tom was a man of faith and compassion and was always willing to lend a hand to someone in need. He is lovingly remembered by his surviving sisters, Dawn (Roger) Kenneavy of Houston, Texas, and Mary Anne (Kenneth) Urlakis of Colgate, Wisconsin. He is further remembered by his nieces and nephews: Ryan (Sara) Kenneavy, Erin Kenneavy, Daniel Kenneavy (deceased), Br.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by Fr. Jude Peters, O.C.D. at the Basilica and National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians at Holy Hill in Hubertus, Wisconsin at a future date. Tom will be laid to rest beside his parents at St. Mary's Cemetery in Richfield, Wisconsin. The funeral arrangements are being handled with care by Harden/Pauli Funeral Home in Eustis, Florida.
