GIO and family

We started this fundraiser to ask for your help and support for Gio and his family. Please know that any little bit helps. Gio left this world on July 17, 2022 doing what he loved—riding his R1 on the Wantagh.

Gio was a genial human being, easily excited to ride, willing to give advice, generous, and a uber friendly soul. If you met him at 188, Fort Totten, or another place, you would have met a rider who was quick to ride with you, remind you to make sure you wore gear and protect yourself when riding, first to offer to pay for food, talk about life and share his hopes and dreams in life, wait for you while riding if you were a bit slower. Gio had a big heart and he shared that with the riders he met in the sport he was passionate about. Many of us will wish to have had more time with Gio.

Gio, we will miss you. It was an honor to know you, and a privilege to ride with you. Please consider donating for our brother on 2s, whose family will need your assistance in funeral costs. We will provide more information on service/funeral dates as we learn about it.
