Gian earned his Commercial Drivers License in 2019 before working with Devine Brothers as a concrete truck operator.

Giancarlo loved nothing more than being a father to his daughter “Luchi”. He was a caring and loving brother, son, cousin, nephew, and partner. He was a dedicated worker and enjoyed driving trucks. If you had the pleasure of knowing Giancarlo, you knew about his contagious smile and unique storytelling skills. He was always willing to drop what he was doing to lend a helping hand. He was friendly and never hesitated to make new friends. He enjoyed eating, and if you own or work at a deli or pizza shop in Stamford, you’ve likely served him. He was also an animal lover and leaves his cat “Flip” in his wake.
