Alvaro Gallegos Grajeda, 75, passed away on January 22, 2021, from COVID-19 complications at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hurst-Euless-Bedford at 1:59 a.m. surrounded by his loving immediate family. He was born to Isidro Gallegos Baca and Esperanza Gallegos Baca on October 6, 1945 in Colonial San Luis, Chihuahua, Mexico.

Alvaro moved to El Paso, TX in the mid-1970s. He became one of Jehovah's Witnesses on December 24, 1988. Inspired by “He that does not love has not come know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:8), he faithfully devoted his life completely to the full-time ministry as a regular pioneer minister. Alvaro retired from El Paso County where he worked for Parks & Recreation and Road & Bridges divisions. After his retirement, he moved the Dallas/Ft Worth area where he continued to serve Jehovah, settling in Waxahachie, TX.

Alvaro is survived by his children - Erika (Charles Patrick) Jones of Waxahachie, Brenda (Christopher Gene) Ross of Ft Worth, Xavier Gallegos of Ft Worth, Hilda (Bill Hugh) Basham of Azle, Isaiah Jeremy Gallegos of Ft Worth, Alvaro (Sandra Burciaga) Gallegos Delgado of Denver City, Ana Velia Gallegos Delgado of El Paso, Cesar Omar (Andrea García) Gallegos Delgado of Práxedis G. Guerrero, Chihuahua, Alejandro (Silvia López) Gallegos Delgado of Guymon, Oklahoma, Esperanza (Irving) Sanchez of Guadalupe, Chihuahua, Ruben (Claudia Valverde) Hernandez of El Paso, Alvaro (Jennifer Contreras) Hernandez of El Paso; grandchildren - Xylia Ytaly Taylor (Ivan) Calvillo, Marvin Gifford (Chandler) Jones, Rebekkah Gene (Franco) Navas, Tabithah (Logan James) Draack, Samantha Justine (Denise) Stratton , Xavier Xian Xerxes Gallegos, Cameron Wesley Hardin, Xanthe Xene Xylona Gallegos (Dylan Ryon Smith), Hannah Mae Hardin, Xiomarah Xahlem Xahlome Gallegos, Solomon Enrique (Ana Claudia) Moreno, Nathaniel Luke Basham, LeRoy Angel Gallegos, Rosa Victoria Gallegos, Jonathan Salvador Gallegos, Seth Alejandro Gallegos, America Aime Mireya Gallegos, Irvin Josue Godinez, Silvia Gallegos, Brisedth Godinez, Alejandra Gallegos Román, Rosa Gallegos Martinez, Cielo Abigail Gallegos García, Claudia Iveth Gallegos, Alejandra Edith Gallegos, Vanessa Ivone Gallegos, Karen Gallegos, Alejandro Gándara, Crystal L Chavez, Stephanie Chavez, Sergio Chavez, Isaiah Chavez, Alvaro Hernandez Jr., Antonio Santana Hernandez, Andres Ruben Hernandez; greatgrandchildren - Gracie Kay Jones, Hazley Adelynne Calvillo, Violet Sophia Frank, Dominic Gallegos, Blakelee Evelynn Jones, Xayleen Kinzleigh Calvillo, Katalea Moreno, Xander Beckett Smith, Javalan Joziah Calvillo, Bellami Brielle Moreno, Daniel Espinoza, Ivy Espinoza, Thiago Garcia, Princeton Chavez; previous family, Maria Teresa Elizondo; 1 brother and 4 sisters; many nieces and nephews.

Alvaro is preceded in death by his wife, the love of his life of 36 years, Rebecca Gallegos Castro; his parents; 1 sister; 5 children; and a grandchild, Fernando Moreno.

He was a social butterfly and befriended all who he met. Alvaro made deep connections with not only Brothers and Sisters, but community members throughout DFW. Beyond his immediate personal connections, Alvaro had a profound love for the Earth and could frequently be seen caring for life in any setting. He was loved by many and will never be forgotten.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”

A virtual Celebration of Life service is scheduled for Saturday, January 30th at 1 P.M. CST via Zoom. To optimize the service, please be on mute with cameras off.

Dear Gallegos Family,

I’ve had the privilege of being apart of your dear family for many years now. Hermano Gallegos and his sweet wife both offered to help me learn Spanish when I moved to their Spanish Congregation. The time we spent together will forever be special to me. I am very grateful to Jehovah for blessing me with their love and friendship. Hermano Gallegos will always be remembered for his love and dedication to Jehovah. He set a great example for us to imitate. Please know that my family and I are longing for the time when we will see Hermano and Hermana Gallegos again giving praise to Jehovah’s name in the Paradise. I can’t wait to hear them both say Hola Nicolasa again. ❤️ Te queremos su familia muchísimos y yo sé que Jehová consolará a su familia con su Espíritu Santo en este momento difícil.

Con mucho cariño,
Nicolasa y La Familia Harris
