Anthony T. Galazen
Anthony “Tony” Tyler Galazen, 22, of Cook, died on Monday, Sept. 20, 2021, at the Waterview Pines Nursing Home in Virginia after a long battle with Juvenile Huntington Disease. Visitation will be held from 12 noon until the 1:30 p.m. funeral service on Saturday, Oct.16 at Mlaker Funeral Home in Cook. Interment will follow in the Cook Cemetery, followed by a luncheon at the Evangelical Covenant Church of Cook. The family wishes people attending the visitation and funeral service to wear a mask. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mesabi Humane Society. Arrangements are with Mlaker Funeral Home of Cook.
Tony was born on Jan. 14, 1999, in Worthington. He was an active participant in soccer and baseball at an early age, until his disease prevented him from pursuing sports into high school. Tony loved the Vikings. His favorite players were Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin, whom he met at a “Make-A-Wish” event. His bedroom was dominated with Vikings’ posters, clothing and blanket spreads. Tony loved to play his Play Station Madden Football games. He always selected the Vikings as the home team where they outscored opponents by more than a hundred points. Tony loved to jump on his trampoline, ride his Honda XR70 motorcycle and Arctic Cat 440ZL snowmobile. He looked forward to the Cook Timberwolves Snowmobile Club’s trail-clearing days where he could be the first one to set tracks on the trail.
Tony is survived by his mother, Lorrie Lappi of Cook; father, John Galazen of Buyck; sister, Ylonnda Galazen of Virginia; maternal grandmother, Charlotte “Dottie” Gallagher of Cook; paternal grandmother, Donna Galazen of Bayfield, Wis.; maternal grandfather, Bob Lappi of Cook; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Tony touched the lives of many and will be sadly missed by all.
He was preceded in death by his maternal step-grandfather, Dan Gallagher of Cook; and paternal grandfather, David Galazen of Bayfield, Wis.
