Garibay, Juan Manuel  
June 25, 1952 - May 12, 2016 Our beloved John, born June 25, 1952, second son of Rafael R. and Guadalupe (Morales) Garibay, passed away peacefully the morning of May 12th, surrounded by family and friends at his childhood home in Summerland.  John attended Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School and Carpinteria High. As a young man, John knew he wanted to drive semi-trucks for a living, and during his 46-year career as a driver he worked for many South Coast companies, taking great pride in his work and his trucks. At the time of his passing, John was employed by Bedrock Building Supplies of Santa Barbara whom we thank for welcoming John into their family and for the wonderful support they provided to John and his family. Those who knew John remember him as a "salt of the earth," hard- working, true-to-his-word man with a heart of gold and a quick smile. Alone or with family and friends, John enjoyed the simple pleasures in life and staying active. Fishing, camping, and sports-especially NHRA racing and watching NFL games-were among his favorite things, but John had a particular love of BBQ grilling for himself and others. Along with a great appreciation for Native American art and a keen eye for antiques John enjoyed working with his hands, drawing detailed sketches, making custom wood picture frames, tending to his garden, even raising pheasants. An artist at heart, John enjoyed each day to its fullest. John is survived by his mother, Guadalupe, siblings Rafael III, Rebecca Wilson, Patricia (Richard) Bickle, and Julia, Uncle Manuel Morales, Aunt Naomi Morales, and nieces, nephews and cousins of the Dommeyer, Ortegon and Morales families, as well as many dear friends. John is predeceased by his father Rafael R. and brother Ernest. To celebrate John's life, Saturday, June 25th a 10am memorial mass will be held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, followed by a BBQ celebration at 1pm, at Toro Canyon Park, 576 Toro Canyon Rd, Montecito, CA.
