Gary Galatioto

Gary Galatioto has lived in Sacramento all his life. He went to Sacramento High School then joined the Marine Corps in 1960. After 4 years in the Marine Corps he joined the California Highway Patrol where he retired after 31 years.

Gary and his wife, Mae, have been married for 45 year and, between them, have 4 children, 19 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren.

Neither Gary or Mae were particularly religious until suddenly in 2003 they both started saying they needed to start going to church. It was kinda like the song...Come to the altar..."Jesus is calling". I believe He was calling us because He knew we were going to need Him and boy did we need Hm. We started going to the Warehouse and shortly after being baptised, Gary was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer with 6 months to live and shortly after, Mae was diagnosed with breast cancer. By the grace of God we are both still here with no trace of cancer.

Gary has made the safety of GRCC and its congregation his personal responsibility.
