gallery/ed gallager - 2005

My good friend Ed Gallagher, son-in-law of Johnny Weissmuller, in Los Angeles (2005). Ed and Johnny were great friends, and spent a lot of time together. Of course, Ed was married to Johnny's adopted daughter, Lisa, daughter of Johnny's final wife, Maria. 

    Ed passed away in May of 2021 at a VA facility in Los Angles. A Korean-era Vet, Ed was a paratrooper in the 1950s until he busted up both his legs (and his two front teeth!), in a dangerous parachute jump.
