James was born on January 1, 1954 in Honolulu to Kimido & Teofila Galase.  He was the 5th of 8 children.  In the early1970’s, James moved to Maui and began working as a laborer at American Fence, later moving on to work as a mechanic for Alamo rental car. He will be remembered as a quiet, yet comical man, who never complained and was proud of his family.  He enjoyed taking his children fishing when they were young, and was a very proud and loving grandfather.

James leaves behind 7 children to cherish his memory, sons, James “Mano”, Jason & Jeremiah Galase; daughters, Janet (Edwin Jr.) McCary, Jayme Pinheiro, Jeanell (Michael) Moepono & Jody-Lee (Brandon) Waiohu.  He also leaves behind 16 grandchildren and numerous other extended family members and friends.
