Wilmington- Micah Torin Gallagher, age 39, passed away on Sunday, August 18, 2019.
He was born and raised in Wilmington and attended Salesianum School and later attended Del-Tech CC. While in Texas, he was employed at a hardware/ lumber yard, where he worked on the floor in sales. Micah enjoyed reading but what brought him the most joy was music. He played the saxophone, bringing people to tears with his rendition of “Amazing Grace”.

He is survived by his parents, Judy and Tom Gallagher; daughter, Kaylee Young; sister, Sarah Gallagher (Jake Oldenburg); brother, Matthew “Clay” Hopkins and a large loving extended family. Micah was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ed & Mary Gallagher and Stanley & Helen Jezyk and his birth-mother, Linda Hopkins.
