J.J. (John) Gabellini Obituary
JJ (John) Gabellini
Aug. 17, 1970 - Aug. 12, 2013
Resident of Pleasant Hill
"Death ends a life, not a relationship." - Mitch Albom.
JJ was a big guy, made a big impact and had a HUGE heart (literally, and it stopped while riding his bike). JJ knew what mattered: his loving family, wonderful, crazy friends, good books, laughter, love, celebrations and quiet moments.
He seized the party that is life and embraced it at every turn, from Mexico to Pine Mountain, from the Delta sloughs to the cycling trails of California to his passion for waterskiing, basketball, softball and golf. His integrity and grounded advice soothed many of us. He was our role model for fun. We'll miss his big hugs and so much more.
A proud member of the Steamfitters Union Local 342, foreman at Therma, JJ is survived by his parents John & Joanne Gabellini, sister Jeanna (Steve) Crews, nephews Lucky & Chance, Uncle Dave (Elaine) Gabellini, Uncle Jim (Lott) Davis and numerous cousins.
