Gabriel “Tio Gabe” Manzur Vera was a loving Husband, Dad, Grandfather, Brother, and great Friend. He left this world on November 8 th, 2023 at age 57.
Gabe worked for Randazzo Enterprise for over 25 years, where he found his passion working with heavy machinery. He later found his other passion – Towing. He then began towing for P&R on the weekends. His eagerness to further his knowledge and skills contributed for him to get CTTA certified to tow light, medium and heavy duty equipment, which led to a career change to further contribute to his nephew’s successful company – Golden State Truck & Trailer Repair, Inc.
At Golden State Truck & Trailer Repair Inc. He led by example and infused an enthusiastic “Can-Do” attitude amongst all team members that led to a significant growth in the business that continues today with his guiding light. He was
instrumental in providing the inspiration and support to his nephew Rene to pursue the dream of building a successful business serving the needs of the Trucking Industry in the Central Coast.
Gabriel met the love of his life, Teresa. They eventually married and had their wonderful children. Today, he is survived and dearly missed by his wife - Teresa and three children (Rigoberto, Ana Laura and Daniel), 2 grandchildren (Bela and Sofi), brothers and sisters, and numerous friends.
