Gallo, John G. of Revere on February 10, 2019. Born and raised in Gaeta, Italy to the late Giovanni and Santina (Cavicchio) Gallo. Beloved husband of 58 years to Lucy (Rinaldi). Devoted father of John Gallo and his wife Sheri of Tampa, FL. Cherished grandfather of Julia and Sara Gallo. Dear brother of Rosa Gallo of Italy, Antonio Gallo and his wife Maria of Belgium, and the late Nunziatina Valente, Maria Toscano, and Damiano Gallo. Also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins. John began his life’s journey in the small fishing village of Gaeta. He served in the Italian navy and made his career as a Merchant Marine, until his arrival to the United States at age 25. He worked as a tailor in the clothing industry in the Boston area, where he met his loving and devoted wife, Lucy. Later he changed careers to the computer industry at Honeywell, where he ultimately retired. John was and will always be remembered as a loving, humble, and caring gentleman with an amazing sense of wanting to help people… wanting nothing in return but respect.
