Ariel was born on June 28, 1983, to Adalberto Galindo and Hilda M. Pena in Port Lavaca, Texas. He graduated from Ellison High School in 2001 and attended Central Texas College. Ariel loved to travel and, in his plans, and adventures he accepted his first job in Afghanistan. During his tenure in the Middle East, he worked side by side with Army soldiers, where in 2019 without hesitating, he risked his life to assist other civilians in danger; he was given recognition for his heroic actions. Ariel traveled to different countries in his adventure where he developed the love for body art (tattoos), weapons and working on car customization. Ariel was a very generous person always finding ways to help people by ensuring families in need had full meals for the most important holidays of the year. Selfless services were one of Ariel’s strongest personal attributes, which was put to use since his teen years and proven over and over amongst his closest friends and family. Ariel was such a big hearted, generous, helpful, and caring person always putting others before himself. The love of his life has been his daughter, Leilani, and his family which for him, trust and family was the base of everything in his relations.
Ariel leaves behind to cherish his memory his parents, Adalberto, and Hilda; his daughter, Leilani; his sisters, Jasmine (JD) and Mayra, brother in-law Randy and his nieces, Amaya, Novah, Ilyanna and Avianna.
