Gallagher, James
James Gallagher - Colorado Springs Gazette - June 24, 1999 - Man known to his friends as retired hobo dies at 85 by Susan Warmbrunn. James Gallagher's obituary form offered a one-word description of his life: hobo. His death June 12 at 85 ended a lifetime riding the rails, carrying the baggage of a personal tragedy he only hinted at to friends. "He was a retired hobo," said Carolyn Gudjonsson, who took Gallagher into her home during the last days of his life. "He loved to go in the car. He loved to travel any place. "I bet he was a pip when he was young." Gallagher was a man with hair as white as bone, with a passion for fresh strawberries, pretty women and old-time trains, friends say. Little is known of his past. He was born in 1913 in Altoona, Pa., and grew up on a farm near the 150-year-old railroad town. A large chunk of his life is unaccounted for until about 30 years ago, when he ended up in Colorado, diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic and mentally retarded. He spent about seven years in the state hospital in Pueblo and 22 years in a Springs nursing home. When Gallagher suffered congestive heart failure about a year and a half ago, guardianship was given to the Arc, formerly the Association for Retarded Citizens. The Arc then moved Gallagher into a house with two other mentally handicapped people. Staff member Gudjonsson worked there with Gallagher and decided to take him home with her when the lease wasn't renewed. "Jimmy had just been the light of my life for over a year and half," said Gudjonsson. He didn't talk much about his days riding trains. Sometimes, someone would ask him about a scar, Gudjonsson said, and Gallagher would answer: "Oh, that's when I got thrown off the train." He rarely spoke of a family lost long ago. He said he married a woman named Oma in Hot Springs, Calif., in 1933 and they had three children together. She died and the babies were taken to the orphanage. "I said: 'Is that when you started riding the trains?'" recalled Gudjonsson. "He said: 'Yes.' Then he cried. So I didn't ask anymore." At the time of Gallagher's family crisis, in the depths of the Depression, many men roamed the country on trains looking for work. Gallagher never lost his love of trains or the hometown he hadn't seen in so many years. Gallagher liked to sit in Gudjonsson's car, the motor silent - "so I can go to Pennsylvania in my mind," he told her. Although he apparently had no relatives who knew where he was, Gallagher found a family in Gudjonsson's house, among her many grandchildren. After visiting her house in the wide-open spaces of Fountain, Gallagher told an Arc staff person: "I'm going home to the farm." Services will be at 11 a.m. Friday Nolan Funeral Home Chapel, 225 N. Weber St., 632-7608. Burial will be private.

Gallegos, Fabino
Fabino Gallegos - Rocky Mountain News – September 15, 1911, Page 4 – Fabino Gallegos at Pueblo is shot at the wedding of Martinez Sanchez and Miss Martina Martinez. Rocky Mountain News – September 15, 1911, Page 4 – Martinez Sanchez, Pueblo wedding to Martina Martinez at the home of the bride in Salt Creek. Murder committed by a reject suitor of the bride, broke up wedding festivities. The crime is thought to have resulted in the death of Fabino Gallegos and Amarance Chavez. At the hospital Chavez made effort to tell who did the shooting but was too weak. He said one single word, "Cirranio", this is thought to be the first name of the man who fired the shots. Two theories result, one being that the shooting of Gallegos happened because he was being shown more favor during the dance than the murderer, and the shooter was an unsuccessful suitor for the hand of the bride and created a disturbance. Chavez, a friend of the man who was killed interposed and was shot.

Gallegos, Richard
Richard Gallegos - Denver Rocky Mountain News - November 30, 2004 - Richard Gallegos, artist and war veteran - Richard Gallegos never said a word about his World War II experiences in Europe. Instead, he used a palette knife to scrape and smear oil paints into images on canvas. One painting depicted village women washing clothing in a river; another was a dark portrait of a medic. A third was a scene of parishioners removing chairs from a church in the distance as it was being bombed. After his death Oct. 19 at the age of 81, his family began to piece together his war experiences, says his son, Bart Gallegos. Mr. Gallegos was barely out of his teens when he served on a "collection detail" during the Battle of the Bulge in 1944-1945. His job was to remove human remains from the field, his son says. "He just wanted to forget it. He was never out for the glory kind of life. He couldn't stand vanity in people, and he pretty much kept to himself, hoping that people would do the right thing." Yet, Mr. Gallegos found a place in Denver's creative scene. He painted with a passion, he found a voice in church as a soloist, and he left behind a painstaking tribute to one of the war's finest generals - Dwight Eisenhower. Mr. Gallegos was born in Trinidad on Nov. 17, 1922, the son of Liceta and Anecieto Gallegos. During the Depression, his father, a native of Spain, was a WPA foreman on the Western Slope. A year after Mr. Gallegos graduated from Holy Trinity Catholic High School in Trinidad in 1941, he enlisted in the U.S. Army at age 19 to train as a medic. Once the war ended, he came to Denver, where his parents had moved. Pursuing a passion for painting, Mr. Gallegos attended art school in San Francisco and was hired by Emily Griffith Opportunity School to work in the art department. Eventually, he became the school's audiovisual technician. His duties included running the school's printing press and developing photographs for school publications, his son says. On Labor Day 1949, Mr. Gallegos met a distant cousin for the first time. Elvera Sanchez had come to Denver with another cousin to enjoy a couple of days' vacation from her job as a beautician in Trinidad. Dancing to big band music at Elitch Gardens, the two "hit it off," she says. "He wasn't hard to get to know, and we loved to dance." Two years later, the couple married, again on Labor Day, Sept. 3. Richard Gallegos, the first of three sons, was born April 24, 1954. He was followed by Bart Gallegos on July 23, 1955, and Tim Gallegos on Sept. 19, 1960. "Family life was a happy one," says Bart Gallegos, who became a TV broadcaster in Colorado Springs. "It was in the Beaver Cleaver age." In his spare time, Mr. Gallegos painted signs and television studio sets and formed the Denver Art Club. Organization members displayed their paintings and artworks at the city's finest hotels, such as the Cosmopolitan and the Shirley Savoy. Mr. Gallegos also was a tenor soloist at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. His most remarkable feat was to hand-copy Eisenhower's inaugural prayer onto a sheet of parchment for the president's chapel at the Denver Club Building, 518 17th St. Over a two-month period, Mr. Gallegos carefully lettered each word freehand, using India ink and gold leaf. "I've stared at the thing for hours at a time, looking for mistakes, and I couldn't find any," Bart Gallegos says. Mr. Gallegos died in his sleep at home. He is survived by his wife and sons, all of Denver; a brother, Eddie Gallegos, of Trinidad; and two granddaughters. Interment services were Nov. 5 at Fort Logan National Cemetery. The body was cremated.
