It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our father, Mauro Gallo on Sunday, November 25, 2018 at the age of 64. Mauro was a most beloved father, cherished nonno, and esteemed friend.
Mauro was born on June 20, 1954, in Colletorto, Italy. He embarked on the great adventure of moving to Canada in 1972. Mauro lived every moment to the fullest. He was a successful hair stylist and business owner, a soccer-enthusiast, lover of golf and card connoisseur. Mauro livened up each and every room he entered with his sense of humor, charm and passion for life.
He is survived by his five children, Giordana Cote, Giancarla Rempel (Garreth), Gabriela Gallo (Alessandro Serra), Marco Gallo (Suzanne), Eric Gallo; his close friend Debbie Reschke, his sister Giovanna Gallo (Olbia, Italy); seven grandchildren, Graycen and Colin, Jackson, Charlotte and Georgia, Antonino and Michele, one nephew Emanuele, one niece Deborah, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and an incredible circle of friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Nunzio Gallo (Colletorto, Italy) and Clementina Franco (Colletorto, Italy), and his precious son Michael Earl Andrew Gallo (Winnipeg, Manitoba).
The family will receive condolences at 10:00 am followed by the Mass of Christian Burial on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 11:00 am at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 510 River Ave., Rev. Father Sam Argenziano presiding.
