Born in Mazara del Vallo, Sicily to Salvatore Giacalone and Maria Rosaria Quinci. He immigrated to San Diego at 17. He worked at Sun Harbor Fish Cannery before completing barber college and was proud to be a barber for 54 years. Gaetano loved his faith, family, friends, his customers, food, cooking and opera.
