TUCSON -- Longtime Santa Rita Park Neighborhood resident and activist Albert Gallego died last night. He had long been ill.
Albert was a solid leader for our neighborhood for many years, and he'll be missed. I learned a lot from Albert, and we'll keep his family in our prayers.
SRPNA is sending our condolences and a card to his wife. We may also take up a collection for Albert's family at our upcoming monthly meeting, Aug 6, 5:30-6:45pm at the Sam Lena Library, 1607 S. 6th Av.
One of our upcoming park and our neighborhood/improvement projects, or perhaps the baseball field near 20th St., should be named after Albert.
