Michael Magallanes, born May 19, 1935, left his earthly life at a too early age of 79 at home with family in Kingman on March 7, 2015. Michael is survived and missed by his wife of 57 years, Helen.
Michael was a devout Catholic, served in the Navy during the Korean War conflict and was involved with Boy Scouting for 20 years. He had an incredible zest for life, which included roller-skating, biking, camping and traveling the continent in his motor home. In their many years together, Michael and Helen traveled all over the world, which Michael documented with beautiful photography.
He leaves behind his three children, son Michael and daughter-in-law Annette; daughter Melonie and his "pain in the ass" son-in-law, Roy; and son Garry and daughter-in-law Bobbi. Six grandchildren also survive him: Yvette, Michael Scott, Destini, Roxanne, Lesa and Clint; as do nine great-grandchildren along with a close-knit extended family.
Services will take place at 2 p.m. March 31, 2015, in Boulder City, Nev., at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
