“A LEGEND HAS PASSED”
Donald L. Gallegos Sr., age 86, passed away on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at his home in Chama, NM.
He was “A SIMPLE MAN” who lived a “SIMPLE LIFE”.
Donald was an honorable man, respected man, and a religious man who accepted God’s word and His will.
He lived a full life with happiness and hard work. He was a compassionate and loving husband, father and grandfather. He loved the company of his friends and family and how he captured their attention with his stories, which made him a “storyteller” and a good one at that.
We will all miss his witty charm and warm presence on this earth.
VAYA CON DIOS PAPA.
