Gallo, Stephen M. May 25, 1962 - August 24, 2019

Family and friends are heartbroken to report the sudden and untimely passing of Stephen M. Gallo (Steve) on 08/24/2019. Steve was born to Michael and Mary Gallo on 05/25/1962 and is survived by his brother Robert Gallo. Steve graduated from Columbia University and joined the Bronxville Police Department on 1/29/1996 and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 2007. Sergeant Gallo retired from the police department in 2012. Steve was an avid Yankees fan and enjoyed travelling with his true love of 33 years – Christa Puccio. As Steve himself expressed, “I’m not sure that any words I can find (yes, me, a self-proclaimed “wordsmith”) would sufficiently or adequately do justice to her nearly lifelong unconditional devotion to me”. Steve was a kind, devoted and trustworthy friend who would never forget a special date. One could always count on that special text message or phone call from Steve wishing you a Happy Birthday or Happy Anniversary. Steve has been blissfully reunited in Heaven with his father, mother, sister Maria and baby Gallo. Steve, as he described when his Mom “left”, “is enjoying an overwhelmingly happy reunion of monumental proportions with the best there ever was”. Rest peacefully Steve.

    I can’t begin to express how much I will miss hearing your voice, your laugh and the man my sons call uncle Steve. I can’t remember a time that you weren’t there for me when I needed you or a time you didn’t make a room brighter with your presence. All that needs to be said is how many called you their “best friend” because that’s exactly what you were to so many of us. Goodbye my friend, until we meet again.
