Galen Otto Neubarth, age 64 of North Hudson, passed away March 18, 2017.  Galen was born July 12, 1952 in New Richmond, the son of Otto and Violet (Johnson) Neubarth.  He graduated from Hudson High School, the Class of 1970.  After high school, Galen furthered his education at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls.  He was united in marriage to his best friend and soul mate, Cynthia Sue Calhoun.
