Jimmy Edwin Gallegos was born October 22, 1956 to Vicente and Estella Gallegos. Jimmy was very family oriented and was devoted to his children and grandchildren. Jimmy leaves behind his four children and eight grandchildren that he loved spending time with and always made sure to be there to support all of them. Jimmy had a passion for riding his Harley and fishing and tried to do both as much as possible, he had a hard time staying home and relaxing when there was so much he could do and see outdoors and stay busy. He was always in the look out for any “hole in the wall” type of restaurant because they usually have the best food around. When he would take his kids to eat at these places we would often wonder how he even came across them in the first place. He had a special love for seafood and loved to get the family together for good crab boils with all the bells and whistles. Jimmy also leaves behind two brothers that he loved growing up with and always considered them his best friends and a little sister he absolutely adored and thought the world of. Jimmy worked as a public servant most of his life managing the maintenance of streets and sidewalks. Jimmy had won awards for his service and became very well known throughout the state. Jim will be missed by many people but especially his kids, grandkids, siblings, and nieces and nephews.
