November 21, 1943 - May 5, 2018
Walgreens, Palace Cleaners, Zarape, and Home Depot, lost a faithful loyal customer on May 5th, 2018. Eustacio “Tacho” B. Gallegos Jr, former Air Force veteran, the man the world knows as “Ted”, was summoned by his eternal heavenly father, to attend a long overdue family reunion with his first-born child, Eustacio E. Gallegos III; his father, Eustacio P. Gallegos; and his recently late mother, Cecilia Benavides Gallegos. A reunion his heart longed and yearned for since May 9th, 1971; the day he buried his son. Ted is survived by his three daughters: Stella Denise Gallegos, Marcie Gallegos, and Renee’ Gallegos; along with his three grandchildren whom he adored and cherished dearly, Sean A. Carpenter, Sadie F. Jara, & Brisa B. Jara, all of McAllen, Texas; and his eight siblings, Gloria Ybarra (Larry Ybarra), Hope Torres (Michael Stanton), Rosario Gallegos (Robert Cox), Raul Gallegos (Sylvia Gallegos), Ruben Gallegos (Costanza Gallegos), Eva Garner, Daniel Gallegos (Cynthia Alvarez), Blanca Canales (Jerry Canales). Ted loved Chuck Norris movies, a good football game with family and friends, a hot cup of coffee in the morning while reading The Monitor, breakfast first thing in the morning at his favorite restaurant, his clothes cardboard starched, & the liberating feeling of dancing in his better years. Ted loved to spend countless hours in the garden, sporting his, “classic Ted” white, cut-off, sleeveless shirt & signature brown hat from Danny’s Pawn & Sporting Goods, creating rich vibrant character to his garden, daily. His green thumb has been passed down to his grandchildren. A sweet legacy he now leaves behind. A public viewing will be held Thursday, May 10, 2018, at Kreidler Funeral Home in McAllen, TX from 3-6pm, following a service by Pastor Ruben Martinez of Living Word Evangelical Free Church in Pharr, TX, from 6-8pm. Friday morning a special church service will be held at Sacred Heart Church in McAllen at 10:00am, May 11, 2018. All Cremation services are being held by Kreidler Funeral home in McAllen, TX.
