In memory of Victor Gallina

I miss Vic’s lighthearted sense of humor. I miss his always having the right answer, knowing a simple solution to a difficult problem. I miss him never being afraid to tell the truth. I miss his honesty. He was always such a “better safe than sorry” kind of guy, he always followed through on any task. He was a very hard worker, and he always gave it his all. He had old-fashioned integrity, he was someone you could depend on. He loved Colorado, it was his home for 40 years. He was a founding father of Vail, he built many homes and businesses there. He was a great carpenter. He closed many deals in the early days with a hand shake. He was a stand up guy, a real straight shooter. He was my big brother, and I miss him.

His loving sister,

Cheri Gallina
