Felipe “Phil” Galvan, 1926-2013

I’m late in posting this. A story ran Tuesday looking at the life of Felipe “Phil” Galvan, who died March 25. He was 87.

It almost feels like an understatement to say he was a fixture in the Mission San Jose district, and in Fremont, in general. In talking to his family, friends and neighbors, it was clear that Galvan was much admired and respected.

If you have any memories of Mr. Galvan, please feel free to share them.
