    Gabby DelGiorno was one of my most memorable students when I taught at DeValls Bluff High School for six years. He was a joy to be around and he brightened school days for students and teachers alike. His smile and laughter seemed contagious. He was smart, kind, friendly, lovable and he knew how to get things done as a natural born leader. He will be dearly missed, but his cherished legacy will continue in the minds of all those who were privileged to know him. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance to Gabby’s family and friends. Billy Booth

    I am so sorry to hear about Gabby’s passing. I met Gabby back in 1973 when we were in high school. There was a large group of us kids that hung around together and we just had a fun time. Then going to 11-70 on Saturdays, Gabby would leave from making pizza every chance he got so we could go dance. He was such an infectious person and everyone just loved being around him. Such great memories of Gabby and he will be missed by all that knew him.
