JOHN JAMES GALLO, SR.
JOHN JAMES GALLO, SR. ~ Age 63, of Elba, died peacefully at the home of his companion while under the care of Hospice and his loving family on Saturday morning November 9, 2019. John was born November 18, 1955 in Batavia, NY to Frank Gallo of Batavia and the late Helen (Pratt) Rosokoff also preceded in death by his beloved wife, Patricia Ann (Tydelski) Gallo on 2012.
John always took pleasure in helping friends and family. He never took life for granted and would try to capture as much beauty as his camera could hold. If he wasn’t out riding his motorcycle, or taking pictures, he would pick up his paint brush or find the next garage sale. He was a renaissance man at his best and he did one hell of a BBQ. We loved him dearly and he will hold a special place in all our hearts.
John is survived by his loving children, John J. (Michelle) Gallo, Jr. of Rochester and Marie (Jean Pierre) Gallo-Arevalo of Toronto, Canada; friend and soulmate, Jacqueline Meyer of Rochester and her family; mother-in-law, Dolores M. (Bay) Tydelski of Batavia; step-father, Sanford Rosokoff of Amherst; siblings, Anthony C. (Maryann) Gallo of Batavia, Frank S. Gallo of Batavia, Peter Rosokoff of Amherst and Jessica (Jon) Topper of Buffalo; members of the Tydelski family, his cherished granddaughter, Reina Patricia Arevalo along with several nieces and nephews.
