Andrew Jacob Gallegos

Decorated Vietnam Veteran


Ex Husband of Ann Gallegos. Loving Father of five children: Anne Chase, Josh Wade, Andrea Webb, Michael Gallegos, and Zachary Gallegos. Grandpa to quite a few grandchildren and great grandchildren.


Andrew J Gallegos was an extraordinary man. When he was younger he taught himself  how to play the piano. As he got older he joined a band in which he loved, because music and people were his passion. He always saw the good in everything. This was taught by his knowledge of God. He served as an alter boy and would tell us great stories of how God always bestowed his Love. Of course this is how he showed us, the same way God showed him. His love for God was passed down to each one of his kids. Andrew showed the unique ability to see life in a magical way. He loved Christmas and would decorate the house with villages and all sorts of fun stuff. When Christmas time came he made it feel like you were a kid again seeing lights and decorations as if it were your first time. It wasn't about the presents but his presence was the gift. Andrew's love for life was not like this world has known. If you knew him he would make you feel like family.He was the type of man you would want in your corner. So even though this is a sad occasion it's really not because he's at home in Heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ having a great and joyus after life.
