Remembering David Gallegos

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we learned last evening of the passing of our long-time friend,colleague and collaborator, David Gallegos.  David was a colleague and an advocate for people with disabilities and families who worked at the Advocacy Center for many years.  For decades, David was an unwavering and passionate advocate on employment-related programs and services for individuals with disabilities.  He will be greatly missed by all of us who had the pleasure to meet and work with him.  The Advocacy Center will be planning a formal remembrance in the coming weeks and will share those details, as well as information on his services.  We extend our heartfelt sympathies to his friends, family and colleagues.

David’s family extends this invitation to all of his colleagues and friends:
