Dawn Ann Galindo

Dawn Ann Galindo made San Antonio her home following her service in the US Air Force. For four decades, “Hurricane Dawn” stormed across the city to places like Great Jubilations, where she danced to her husband’s rock band, the Old San Francisco Steakhouse, where she dined with her family on special occasions, Gustafson Stadium, where Dawn cheered on her children at their soccer matches, the AT&T Center where she chanted, Go Spurs Go, and various medical facilities where she cared for her patients as a nurse and multiple animal shelters where she volunteered to aid her four-legged friends.

Dawn loved her parents, Patricia and Raymond Heckman, and Stephen and Jeanne Napolitano, and she had a special bond with her three younger sisters, Shawn, Doreen, and Coleen. The sisters shared a mutual love for each other and stayed in touch over the years, even when thousands of miles separated them. Dawn enjoyed thirty-six years of marriage with her husband, David, and raised Amber Dawn and David Christopher. Later, she welcomed a son-in-law, Joshua, daughter-in-law, Jennifer, and grandson, Jesse. Her family is forever indebted to the donors who honored her with this living memorial.
