Brad Jay Galvez

December 13, 1960 - December 10, 2013

Brad Jay Galvez, 52, departed this life to receive his eternal reward on Tuesday, December 10, 2013. The son of Fred, Jr. and Gayla Galvez was born December 13, 1960 and raised in Ogden, Utah. He attended Ogden High, WSU, and graduated from USU with his MBA. He was sealed to his eternal companion, Lisa Lyn Weaver, in the Ogden LDS temple and has enjoyed her love and support for over 30 years.

He leaves a legacy of hard work, integrity, and service instilled into the hearts and minds of his four children; Joshua (Tiffany), Jenilyn (Jason), Justin, and Jordana and five grandchildren. They will be forever grateful for his enduring love.

He was known as a man of impeccable integrity and principle. His life was full of service to others, which never ceased. If he was not spending time with his family, he was serving others through his church callings or the community at large. Never doing anything halfway, he would work and serve until the job was done right.

Brad was an exemplar of one being anxiously engaged in a good cause. He served as Chairman of the Ogden Utah Pioneer Days Foundation Board, member of the Utah House of Representatives, Chairman of West Haven planning commission, in Rotary Club and in many other organizations. He was proud to be a member of the Utah Farm Bureau. He influenced the lives of all that were around him for good.

Funeral Services for our Dad, Husband, Grandpa, Brother, and Son will be held on Saturday, December 14 at 11:00 a.m. at the Wilson 2nd Ward (2333 South 2700 West, West Haven). There will be a viewing Friday, December 13, at the same location from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

Interment in Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park.

Dear Lisa and all the Galvez Family, I have always had such respect for the Galvez family starting in high school with Karen. It has been my joy and honor to get to know you, Lisa, and your wonderful children who are kind, thoughtful and lovely like you. Brad is our hero and we salute you too, you who served faithfully by his side in the Legislature. We were honored to share your successes. Brad was always quick to give others the credit when it was really you and Brad who did all the work. You have served by his side through good and bad. You have been and will continue to be such an influence for good. Our hearts ache for you. Love, Bert and Kathy

Lisa and Family, We are very sorry for your loss. We're sorry we couldn't attend the funeral. Brad was a great bishop and just a very nice person. He saw us through times that we had some bad health problems and was always there to help. We're sorry that we couldn't have been more help to him. Our condolences and prayers are with you and your family.

We are so sorry to hear of Bishop Galvez's passing. He was a great bishop and we appreciate his support for our family, his willingness to officiate at Mel's sister's funeral and to say such kind words about her, even though she was never a member of the ward. It was of such great importance to us, and even more so, knowing that he was sick. We don't live in West Haven anymore, but people like him make us miss living in such a kind and friendly place.

Because I have been your very shoes, I KNOW there are no words that you even begin to make you feel better. It has been eight years since I buried my husband and all I can tell you is that is does get better. I know you lost your mom, so you are familiar with loss. But when you lose the one you lay next to each night, that holds your hand, and makes it all better, it just sucks! (For lack of a better word) Please call me if you need to talk to someone who really understands. If you can't sleep at night, or wonder why you can't stop crying, I am only a phone call away. I would love to get together. Stephanie 801-698-8369

Lisa, I was so surprised to read of Brad's passing. My sympathy to you and your children. Reading that you have grandchildren is also surprising, because I think of you children as young when you used come on Audubon bird walks. Sharen

We are so sorry to learn of Brad's passing. We treasure our association with all of you and pray that you will be comforted and assured at this temporary separation that you will all soon be together eternally. He taught us all by his example of dealing with the adversity that became part of his mortal test. We are better people because of all of you. Please know that you are loved by us all. May the Comforter bring His Peace as this Tender Hour. Love, Dan & Nancy Litchford

We are sincerely sorry to hear of the passing of such a fine man. Son of well respected family. We are glad we had the opportunity of having him associate with our children's growing up years.
