Bill Callejo, the husband of civil rights activist and Dallas attorney Adelfa Callejo, has died. He was 88 years old.

His passing comes just more than three months since his wife's death.

Bill Callejo was an architect, attorney and engineer. He also was a civil rights activist alongside his wife of 67 years.

"We have lost yet another tireless advocate for our community," said Marcos Ronquillo, former chairman of the Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in a written statement. "We take comfort in knowing that our beloved Bill is in a better place and now joins his life long partner Adelfa and we know they are looking down upon all of us now."
