GALLO, Jerret John

April 11, 1992 – Vancouver, British Columbia
November 23, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Jerret John Gallo was our inspiration. Family, love, and laughter represented everything important to him. Jerret’s “light up the room smile” brought joy to everyone around him and captured the hearts of all. He grew into a little man that came along with his new stache, and faced his ongoing challenges with amazing grace and strength. As a family, we have had the privilege of cuddling Jerret as a baby, and hanging with him as a man much more than we all could of ever have hoped for. He created his own ability to communicate and no one ever doubted what he liked and did not like. His love for music, which defined him, and his musical choices although sometimes questionable were always encouraged. From the very beginning until his final moments song allowed him to express himself. He loved his rides in the truck with dad, bonding with the cats with Cara, and couching it with mom. He has a huge loving family that surrounded him through it all. Although Jerret’s family circle was extremely extended, his group of friends was equally abundant. Jerret took his final breathes in the arms of his mom, dad and sister with his favourite songs playing, on the evening of November 23, 2018. His courageous spirit will be missed but his smile will be forever etched in our hearts.

Jerret is survived by his amazing parents, Arleen and Jerry Gallo, and his loving sister Cara Gallo. He is also survived by his Grandma Annette Waywood, his Nonni Irene & Giovanni Gallo and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by his Grandpa Edward Waywood and Cousin Nolin Bouchard.

All one can ask of this life is to love and be loved and to have a little fun while doing it. Jerret had all of this.

A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held in British Columbia at a later date. Jerret’s parents are working with Options Day Program to plan a small gathering for his friends in Calgary.

In living memory of Jerret Gallo a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB, T2X 3J3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.

  5. Jerret was always such a ray of positivity. Always smiling and laughing. He always seemed to have as much fun (maybe even more) as everyone else at the neighbourhood potlucks and BBQ’s. His smile will be missed. Sending lots of love to you Arleen, Jerry and Cara.
