Una nang sinabi ng pamilya ng award-winning director na naospital si Gallaga kamakailan dahil sa iba’t ibang komplikasyon dulot ng mga dating health condition nito.

“He was a visionary director and artist; a loving husband, father, and grandfather; and a dear friend. He has brought so much joy to so many people and he will always live in our memories and in his art,” pahayag ng pamilya Gallaga.

Kaugnay nito, walang gaganaping funeral service bilang pagsunod sa umiiral na enhanced community quarantine protocols dahil sa COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are grateful for your thoughts, well-wishes, and prayers but we would appreciate some time to grieve as a family in private during this very painful time,” ayon pa sa pahayag ng pamilya.
