Bossier City, LA – Galey Douglas Honaker was born on July 9, 1942 to Doug and Lois Honaker in Farmville, VA. Galey met his Heavenly Father on April 24, 2019 surrounded by his family.
He grew up in Crewe,VA where he enlisted in the USAF and served four years. During that time, he met the love of his life, Carolyn Haynes, and they were married in 1963. They settled in Bossier City in 1971.
He accepted a job as salesman at Chevy Land in Shreveport and was later promoted to management and retired as Commercial and Fleet Sales Manager in 2002. He served many customers and considered them his special friends.
He loved his churches, Stephen’s United Methodist Church and later Asbury UMC, serving on and chairing various committees. He considered it an honor to serve as Building Committee chair for Asbury’s new sanctuary which was consecrated in 2005 to the glory of God.
