Amidst all the high-profile deaths of musicians, cultural icons and film stars that have marked this abysmal year, the passing of Dan Gallagher saddens me the most.
Dan was a Vietnam vet and ardent advocate for veterans. I didn’t know him well, but I got a chance to see his advocacy in action when he tried to help a war widow keep her housing as she was being evicted from her apartment for hoarding.
The Missoulian has a good article reflecting on Dan’s life and work, which you can read here. Even the comments are positive.
Rest in peace, Dan.
