Julio E. Gacharna Obituary
December 14, 1926 - September 11, 2017 Julio Eduardo Gacharna, age 90, of La Verne, California, passed away in his sleep at his home on Monday, September 11, 2017, due to pancreatic cancer. Julio was born on December 14, 1926 in Bogota, Colombia, to parents Carlos Alberto and Elvira. He is survived by wife Briceida and is the father of daughters Chris and Luz, and sons Richard, Orlando, and Alan. After serving in the Colombia Navy, Julio went on to work in the oil industry for the petroleum company Esso Colombiana. After working for more than a decade there the 34-year-old Julio then took his family to the land of opportunity, the United States of America, later becoming a proud naturalized citizen. Julio's career profession and expertise was as an accountant/tax preparer. Pre-computer era clients marveled at his beautiful handwriting; his art form like signature fascinates people to this day. And even at 90 years old he was still passionate about preparing income taxes for his longtime clientele, who knew if they wanted it done right they came to Julio. He was loyal and ethical to his profession. Julio loved his family and friends. He was generous and kindhearted. He loved to laugh and make people laugh. His outgoing charm and wit was irresistible to all. Memorial service will be held at the Todd Memorial Chapel in Pomona at 3pm, Saturday, September 16, 2017 located at 570 N. Garey Ave., Pomona.
