Joe was among the first faculty members to greet and befriend me when I first joined the Foothill College English faculty in 1989 -- an openhearted kindness that epitomized his role as a teacher and a mentor. We remained friends and colleagues until his retirement (and I treasured the several visits we had together since that time). I also fondly recall meeting Joe's family when he hosted English Dept Faculty Retreats at his home in San Jose. I am caring for aging parents in Colorado, so could not attend the memorial service today (but was very much there in spirit).

I would like to extend my condolences to Mr. Gallo's family. I was his mailman for 9 years and had many wonderful conversations with Joe. I grew to admire and enjoy his knowledge, wisdom and dry sense of humor. He will be missed.

I am sorry for your loss. I had Mr.
Gallo for 3 classes at Foothill College in 82 and 86. He was the most influential teacher that I ever had. After I graduated college, I would often visit him and we had some very indepth conversations. I will treasure those memories. He will be surely missed.
