Our hearts are broken saying goodbye to our brother "Gabby" Michael Gaborno on his passing yesterday January 4th, 2017 at 11:45am. He was a warrior. One of the toughest, funniest, most loving, passionate & talented men we've ever known. He was a true artist & entertainer, a phenomenal front man, performer & musician. He wanted you all to know that he fought the fight of 100 men & kept his dukes up to the very end. He defied all doctors, dates & odds, enduring tremendous pain to stay with us longer than ever thought possible solely for his boy Presley.
Facing death Gabby was positive that there was nothing more valuable in our lives than the moments with the people we love. He wanted us to celebrate his life & reflect on the moments he had with each of us. He wants us to continue to be, to continue to create, to live, to love & to laugh hard daily. He said all any of us are really guaranteed is today, he hopes we see, love & appreciate our moments.
If you knew him, Gabby never cared as much about things as he did about people. We were his life riches. He poured himself into all of us. He changed & saved more lives than we'll ever know. We can officially say now that the memorial, services & burial Gabby requested is taken care of. As he wanted it, we're asking that you show your love, respect & honor of him to his surviving love & light, his beautiful 7-year old son Presley Gaborno. All contributions made to this "Gabby" Michael Gaborno Memorial Life Fund for Presley will go directly into a savings account that has been set up in Presley's name for his life & education. Presley lost more than his Dad yesterday - he lost his super hero. Let's show Presley the love, let's wrap our arms around him now & show him what his Dad meant to all of us.
Gabby will be laid to rest next to his Mom & Dad. His Celebration of Life services will be held at his beloved church, The Sanctuary in Costa Mesa & A Special Tribute Memorial Show will be held at The Observatory in Santa Ana. Details will be announced shortly.
Thank you all for the love! Gabby felt it all the way through his fight, we feel it now, let's give it to Presley. xo LP
