‘We the people saved Route 66’: How one man’s dedication is keeping the Mother Road alive

Known as the “Guardian Angel of Route 66,” 93-year-old Seligman barber and store owner Angel Delgadillo is still a vital part of his community.

I recently had the pleasure of writing an article about Angel Delgadillo for Roadtrippers Magazine. Angel’s story is about the strength in voice, standing up for what you believe in, and doing what you can to save your community no matter how hard or long the road may be to travel. Enjoy the story by clinking ‘We the People Saved Route 66’
