Jules Galinn of Delray Beach, Florida, formerly of Baltimore passed away peacefully in his home on Monday, February 1, 2021, at the age of 88. He is survived by his loving and cherished wife of 36 years, Marilyn (Plisco); his children, Wendy, Albert and his wife Kim (Theiss); step-son, Brian Pinsky; Grandchildren, Matthew, Sarah (Ryan) Ernst, Dylan Pinsky, Kara Pinsky, and Kobe Pinsky; and new Great-grandson, Hunter; his brothers, Harvey (Norma) Galinn, Dr. Joel (Leanore) Galinn; brother-in law, Dr. Irwin (Dale) Plisco in St. Louis; many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, also from St.Louis; and many cousins and friends.

Jules was predeceased by his loving son, Scott Howard Galinn; his step-son, Jason Marc Pinsky; and his parents, Lillian (Seidler) and Sam Galinn.

Jules was a devoted father to his family and enjoyed birthday surprises by Wendy, who would travel from Baltimore, arranging with Marilyn to pick her up at the airport and Wendy would arrive, ringing the front door bell yelling SURPRISE. Jules looked forward to spring and summer breaks when his grandchildren would visit and turn his pristine home into what looked like a tornado came through. Wendy and Albert were fortunate to spend the last few days with their father before his passing. After his time in the army, in 1955, Jules worked as a salesman at the Original Luskin store on Park Heights, waiting to enter college. That never came to pass as Jack Luskin would eventually continue having Jules working at the office for 41 years as a Buyer as the one store turned into many stores. Jules retired in 1996. After staying home he decided in 1999 he wanted to move to Sunny South Florida. This was paradise for Jules and Marilyn, Jules going fishing with the guys, going to the beach, meeting up with old friends from Baltimore and acquiring many friends in their new community. He loved sitting on the lanai in his lounge chair, soaking up the warmth, listening to old music and snoozing, and enjoyed cruising. When the Pandemic prevented dining out, their driveway became a socially distant gathering of a few neighbors every evening. He was recently surprised on his 88th birthday by a Drive-by Birthday surprise.

Jules will be leaving a void in our lives, He was truly the loving, kindest, most compassionate, forever smiling gentleman. He was a true warrior when his Pancreatic Cancer was diagnosed. For 7 months he endured his treatments and several surgeries but he never lost that wonderful smile.

A virtual funeral will be held on Wednesday February 3, 2021, at 2:30pm. Please omit flowers. Contributions in his memory may be sent to the charity of your choice.

Our entire community mourns the loss of Jules Galinn. Jules was a devoted husband to Marilynn and a cherished Father and Grandfather to his large and extended family.
To those of us who knew him well, he was a special friend. He was always quick to reach out to us. His warm and effusive personality was swift to embrace us with raucous laughter when sharing a humorous event or an amusing story and conversely to provide us with compassion and support in difficult times. During his lifetime he never failed to impart to us the true meaning of friendship….steadfast, trustworthy and loyal.
May the memory of Jules Galinn always be for a blessing and may it bestow peace and comfort upon his family and upon all who mourn for him
