Today we suffered a tragic loss. As you may have seen today on every news channel a father and husband, Ricardo Gallegos, was gunned down in the City of Carson. Ricardo, Carter to his family, was father of 4 children all under the age of 15 and a husband of 15 years. You would never see Carter frowing. He was a happy person, always laughing and being goofy and he loved to make others laugh. There was never a dull moment when he was around. He was a devoted father, spending all his free time coaching them in soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, football etc. He coached for many years at Dominguez Park, Carson Park, Veterans and most recently coached the "Carson Hammer Heads" Everything Cardo did was for his kids. He worked days, nights, even weekends to provide everything his family needed.
We are gettting a lot of people asking how can they help. First, we'd like to thank everyone and ask for prayers for the family during this terrible time. Carter was a carpenter who was hired to do a floor job at the residence where he took his last breath. If you are able and find it in your heart to donate, it is much appreciated. This Go Fund Me has been created on behalf of Angie, his wife, and his kids to help lessen the financial burden of having to bury a father and husband who was the sole provider for his family, and also to help with day to day cost of living.
We are putting together "meal train" account for the family. If you havent heard of this, its an app/webpage that is designed to allow those who wish to arrange meals for the family during this difficult time. We will post a signup link here shortly. Any support is appreciated during this time, including school supplies, clothes, or anything else you are able to donate.
