Galo and Connie on their last trip to his beloved Ecuador

Galo G. Ulloa was born 12-26-1944 in Gualaceo Ecuador.  He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Maria Consuelo Ulloa of Burbank California.  Galo Ulloa was a man of humble beginings.  He became orphaned at age 8 years old as a result of circumstances beyond his control.  He worked along side his brother Miguel Ulloa for a time and then his Cousin George Ulloa, finding any and all odd jobs in order to survive including shining shoes and cleaning and maintaining boats along the pier where he and his cousin lived by themselves.

As a young child he would carry luggage on a fairy because he was too young to get a job.  He lived on small boats that were docked because he was too young to rent a place.  At the age of 10 he learned how to fix shoes and started make extra money which allowed him and his cousin to finally pay for a place to live.  Galo always figured out a way to survive and even thrive.

  Galo had two children Mariana and Albert in Ecuador.  Galo wanted a better life for himself and his family and moved to the USA.  In New York he found and married his beautiful wife Maria Consuelo Ulloa.  There he had his three kids Walter, Dave, and Amy.

His American dream was to live, buy and payoff his home in the USA, so that his kids would always have a family and roof over their head  which he did not have growing up. Galo accomplished his dream of paying off his house this month just before he passed working two humble jobs all his life.

  Galo was a man of great integrity, he only knew how to put his friends first.  He never made excuses and worked 2 jobs to provide for his family a better life then he had.  He was stubborn, but in a good way, in a way that compelled him to take any challenge and know for certain he would not fail.

He would find a way to accomplish any dream he created for himself and his family.  His soul only understood how to help others, may God reward our father who is now in heaven and life has rewarded him for 66 extraordinary years.  Galo passed away on November 30, 2010 however his legacy will live forever.
