Gabe found enjoyment in all types of music and movies. He especially enjoyed watching car racing with his dad and was an avid fan of the Andy Griffith TV show.
Gabe was handed a life of insurmountable challenges since the day he was born. Each day Gabe dealt with these obstacles with strength, courage and a whole lot of determination to make it through the day.

As his family we are so proud that Gabe is our son and brother. Gabe will be profoundly missed and will be forever in our hearts.
