MARSHALL VINCE GALARIO

It is with tremendously heavy hearts that the family and friends of Marshall Vince Galario announce the sudden passing of this kind soul on September 7, 2021, at the age of 62. He will be remembered for his big heart and even bigger personality.
Marshall knew how to bring smiles and laughter to others through his uncanny wit and humour. Marshall was born in Toronto, Ontario and later moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba where he was fortunate to have made lifelong friends that will deeply miss his genuine company and zest for life.
He was predeceased by his father Salvatore and leaves behind his beloved mother Michela and his sisters, Mary (Robert) Blake and Margaret (Kostas) Andrianopoulos and extended family. Uncle Vince was loved and adored by his nephews, Alexander, Lucas, Liam, Julien and niece Vanessa.
Marshall was a well known and highly respected sound and light technician with a passion for music, exploration and vitality. He worked as a local crew member for legendary bands such as The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Ozzy Osborne, Elton John, David Lee Roth and just about any other bands who came through town like The Scorpions and much more. He also worked with many local bands and spent four years in Regina where he managed the Convention Centre and Arena. He will be sadly missed by all.
Marshall Vince Galario will return to Toronto for Entombment at Westminster Cemetery.
A Celebration of Life will be held on September 13 at X-Cue's Cafe & Lounge, 551 Sargent Ave. at 7:00 p.m.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • So sad to hear of Marshalls passing. Marshall was the single most dedicated crew member any Band could have. We were touring in the winter of 1989 with Lee Aaron. We were in the middle of the tour, and it was cold. We were staying at a hotel on Bloor in Toronto. We woke up one morning to find Marshall sleeping outside of our rooms in the hallway. He had taken a bus (or hitchhiked) from Winnipeg to T.O just to be there!!! We could only afford one crew member as an opening act (Marshall knew this) Marshall made his way out there regardless. Such dedication!! Lee Aarons Crew were so blown away by Marshall and his HUGE Personality that they took great care of him, even having him as a sleeping guest on their tour bus for the remainder of the tour. Marshall was a Prince among Men!! We will miss him dearly. My condolences to Marshall's family. God Bless Alec Friesen - Posted by: alec friesen (Friend) on: Nov 14, 2021

  • I’m going to miss him. He was so funny and kind, everyone liked his kooky personality. He stayed with us for a few months a few years ago but because he was out in Winnipeg I didn’t see if so often. But the time I have spent with him I won’t forget. All my friends still remember when he put on bmx grips he got for this bike he had (which we still have) by spitting in it and sliding it on. All my friends laughed and they all still remember it. The world has lost a good one and I won’t forget my uncle. - Posted by: Lucas Blake (Nephew) on: Sep 18, 2021

  • I met Marshall shortly after he moved to Winnipeg when he worked at Rays Towing with my brother Rob. He used to come hang out at our house & he became a great friend of mine & Dannys as well. When he started spreading his wings in Winnipeg’s music world he always kept in touch if we didn’t catch him at one of his gigs. Marshall was one of the sweetest, cutest, 🥰nicest, most respectful friends we all knew. Marshall if you're listening I want you to know I’m really going to miss you even though I’ve been in Vancouver for years, you left an imprint on my heart back in the day and I’m heartbroken now that your gone but I’m thankful to know you’re in GOD'S hands. Keep in touch somehow okay and we will see you on the other side! So long my friend, stay cool 😎! RIP Marshall 🙏🏻❤️ - Posted by: Nancy Ezako (Friend) on: Sep 13, 2021

  • Back in the 80s and 90s, Marshall was the big brother to all of us young musicians just getting started in the winnipeg music scene. He had such a big heart…. I feel lucky to have known him. - Posted by: Dylan Hermiston (Friend ) on: Sep 12, 2021

  • I was eighteen years old, Marshall would have been 22. Marshall and sound man Jim Prost came as a package deal back in the day, one sound man and one light man. It was my first professional band and Marshall would end up working with us for several years. Most of those years were spent on the road so you develop close friendships with those you travel with. Marshall was very likable and acted more like another band member than just a valued crew member. He had a great sense of humor, was a great light man, bus driver, and in certain ways a mentor for many of us coming into the music industry. Marshall was one of the most reliable people I ever worked with! 2K, as many knew him was able to yell across a room of musicians making noise and be clearly heard! LOL!!!! I haven't seen Marshall for very long time now, as I have lived in another country for the last 15 years, never the less, hearing about his untimely passing has definitely caused me to give thanks for Marshall, for who he was, his loyalty as a friend, and for being a crew member extraordinaire. Whoever knows Marshall will never forget him, thats the legacy he leaves behind!! RIP Marshall, you will most definitely be missed! - Posted by: JC Thomas (John) (professional acquaintance and friend ) on: Sep 11, 2021
