Before his ordination he volunteered to be transferred to Pueblo, CO because the area was in great need of priests.
During his life he served in numerous parishes throughout Colorado and even helped organize a credit union for St. Joseph's parish in Salida.
His love of the poor and those in special need of healing was always his primary concern.
Father Gallagher died in 2015 while visiting his family in Iowa.
The vestment purchased in his memory is a Celtic Knot chasuble from Theological Threads.
He lives with his lovely wife and eleven kids in northern Colorado.
