Gabe lived a full life serving the Lord. No matter where he was, or what he was doing or who he was with you knew he was sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Cross. That’s just who Gabe was, his actions were as loud as his words serving others in any way he could.

He also served in the Army National Guard of Penna. He worked for Tri-State Technical Sales and after he retired from Tri-State, he worked part time for Fed Ex.
Gabe taught Sunday school for years at Calvary Chapel Chester Springs always showing up for class with a box of donuts. Raising sheep was a hobby that he loved.
Gabe will be missed but his legacy will live on through the people he met in life along the way and shared the Good News of Jesus Christ – Amen!
