John Gallelli

John Gallelli, 81, of Langhorne, PA, peacefully passed away on Sunday, July 24, 2022, with his loving wife and family by his side. He was born on October 31, 1940, in Philadelphia, PA, to John and Mary Carella Gallelli.

John was a Master Plumber and started his own plumbing business in Langhorne, PA, in 1976.  He was later joined by his sons John and Michael and daughter-in-law Maureen, who continued the business after John’s retirement. The family was well thought of by the builders and customers they did business with.

John enjoyed hunting, fishing, woodworking, artwork, creating stained glass, music, and gardening, among many other interests.  Among his woodworking projects, he made custom kitchen tables for his family members and miniature replicas of covered bridges, corn cribs, etc., which he won prizes for. He was a very interesting and talented man.

John loved spending time with his family whether it be hunting and fishing with his sons or enjoying taking a walk with his daughter. 

John is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Barbara Bond Gallelli, their three children: Kathleen (late Bruce) Lesser, John and his wife Maureen Gallelli, Michael and his wife Susan Gallelli. He is also survived by his eight grandchildren: Scott (Brooke) Lesser, Nicole (Steve) Hummel, Jacqueline (Ray) Schmoltze, John (Lindsay) Gallelli, Maria Gallelli, Antonia (Dmitri) Bourlako, Michael Gallelli, Patrick Gallelli; his 8 greatgrandchildren: Scott, Lucas & Jake Lesser; Bruce and Jewel Hummel; Ray and Ella Schmoltze and Jackson Clark.

John’s family will receive condolences on Thursday July 28, 2022 from 10:00am until Words of Remembrances 10:55 am, followed by his Funeral Mass 11:00 am at St. Bede the Venerable Church, 1071 Holland Rd., Holland, PA. Interment will follow in Newtown Cemetery, Newtown.

The family acknowledges the compassionate care given by the nurses and staff at Chandler Hall Hospice Care, Pickering Manor, St Mary Home Care and the Fox Chase Cancer Center Team. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to The American Cancer Society 1626 Locust St. Philadelphia, PA 19103.
