Gabriel was raised in Rancho Sespe and Fillmore. Gabriel, as most boys did, enjoyed the many adventures of being from a small town. He enjoyed telling his stories of the mischief he, his brother and friends would get into in the small community they lived in. He attended Fillmore High School and enjoyed sports. He played football and enjoyed playing basketball. He enjoyed shooting hoops with his friends and his two sons. He appreciated a challenging game of Chess.
Gabriel later enlisted in the National Guard for 4 years. Gabriel was employed by the DMV State of California for over 30 years where he retired. Gabriel had a great sense of humor, always wanting to tell a story with a punch line that would have everyone laughing.
We love you dearly and will miss you every day for the rest of our lives. Until we meet again.
