Paul Frank Gallo, of Stratford, beloved husband and father, passed away on Friday, October 24, 2014 at the young age of 58.

Paul was born on September 12, 1956 in Bridgeport, Connecticut, to his parents Claudia and Carmen Gallo.

Paul met and married his one true love Debby Stankosky in 1981.

Paul worked as a dedicated truck driver at Sikorsky Aircraft Overhaul and Repair for twenty-five years. Paul would go to the ends of the earth for his children and wife, and acknowledged them as “my girls”. Paul also lovingly called his oldest daughter Alicia his “driving buddy”, and his youngest Kinder, “Daddy’s little girl”. His grandson North was fondly known to Paul as his “Little Man of Steel” and will forever fondly remember him as “Pop Pop”

Those blessed to know Paul, remember him for his good heart, and honest character. He had a knack for comforting people and a way with words when helping others with their problems. Paul enjoyed Harleys, singing, driving, making people laugh, and making toys for his grandson.
