I hit a slow spot at work today, and out of sheer boredom, I typed in Galatas as a key word and discovered this interesting site.
I am Roy Galatas.My father was Jim, my mother was Irene Pichon.I had one sibling, my sister Marcia.Ufortunately, they are all deceased.My father (90) and my sister (59) both passed very recently.My mother died at a very young age in 1960.
I grew up in Bonfouca on Bayou Liberty Road, but left for the military at the age of 19.We always referred to that area as "Down the Bayou".Family and career have kept me away from my roots for a very long time, and it would be nice to get reaquainted with many of the people that I grew up with, and are likely related to.
At my father's funeral, I did have the wonderful opportunity to see many people that I had not seen for a long, long time, and I might add, was reminded of the wonderful, caring nature of the people I grew up with.
Soooooo, please drop me a line and bring me up-to-date.
