Refugio Gallo

Refugio Gallo Garcia passed away peacefully at his home in Simi Valley on January 4, 2021 at 71 years of age, after a short courageous battle with brain cancer. He was born on April 30, 1949 to Refugio Gallo Ledezma and Silvina Garcia Gallo in Juchipila Zacatecas, Mexico. He was the eldest of 7 children. In 1968, he married the love of his life Rosa (Gutierrez) Gallo. Refugio immigrated to the United States in 1972 to live the American dream. Six years later, he started his own successful gardening business. He worked endlessly for over 43 years to provide for his family. His priority in life was not only to ensure his family was taken care of, but also to be the best father and husband possible. He was always there for his family and taught them to enjoy every moment life had to offer. Whenever possible, Refugio enjoyed camping and dirt bike riding with his family. He also loved watching a good soccer game and an entertaining boxing match. Refugio is survived by his loving wife Rosa of 52 years; his caring children, Maritza, Jorge, Yesenia, Cynthia, Miguel, and Yvette; his grandchildren; his great-grandchild, his mother, his brothers and sisters. Refugio was preceded in death by his father Refugio Gallo Ledezma, his son Refugio Gallo Gutierrez, his granddaughter Eliana, and his nephew/godson Gabriel.
