Galo Alberto Palacios

June 5, 1928 ~ March 29, 2021 (age 92)


Mr. Galo A. Palacios, age 92, passed away on March 29, 2021. Galo was born on June 5, 1928, in Quito, Ecuador, to Mercedes Muñoz. He was a man of many natural talents - an intellectual, an artist, a teacher and a musician. He devoured reading and music (especially classical music) and never tired of learning. Though he was a man of few words, he was a true gentleman and had a wonderful sense of humor and wit, never missing an opportunity to make people laugh and smile. But most importantly, Galo was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He lived, breathed and sacrificed for his
family. He made a positive impact on everyone he crossed paths with – in Ecuador, New York City, and Dallas, Texas.


He is survived by his wife, Fabiola Palacios, son Patrick X. Palacios and daughter-in- law Irma Palacios, daughter Adrienne R. Palacios, son Ivan A. Palacios and daughter-in-law Blanca Palacios as well as five (5) grandchildren: Briana Y. Palacios, Mia I. Palacios, Samuel I. Palacios, Patrick Aidan Palacios, and Sofia I. Palacios.

He was preceded in death by his mother Mercedes Muñoz, daughter Yvette Palacios, sisters Beatrice and Fausta, and his brother Alfredo.
