Stanley Galaszewski Obituary

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii – Stanley Casmier Galaszewski was born on September 5, 1912. His life was tragically cut short at the age of 29, during the attack on the USS California at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Making his ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, his life is forever etched in the annals of history.

Stanley enlisted in he United States Navy on November 15, 1940 in Cleveland, OH. He then became a Seaman 2nd Class and was stationed on the USS California. His awards and decorations include: Purple Heart Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, American Defense Service Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, American Campaign Medal and the World War II Victory Medal.

Stanley’s remains were exhumed from the graves of the USS California “unknowns” after nearly seven decades and identified using recent advances in forensic technology. Finally, after so many years, there is a renewed sense of closure and remembrance for his family and loved ones.

As we bid farewell to Stanley, let us remember the brave souls who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. Their courage and sacrifice shall never be forgotten, forever embedded in the tapestry of our nation’s history. May Stanley Casmier Galaszewski rest in eternal peace, knowing that his contribution to our country will always be cherished and honored.

Burial with full military honors will be held at the Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Steubenville on Friday, November 3 at 1 p.m. Friends are invited to observe the funeral procession that will start at the funeral home and will go through Sunset Boulevard at approximately 12:30 pm.
