The beloved family of Gabriel A. Rios, is saddened to announce his passing on August 11, 2022 at the age of 57 years. Gabriel was a life long resident of the Gila Valley. He was born in Safford, Arizona to parents, Dolores & John Rios. Dolores & John had fifteen children. As a child Gabriel attended school in Safford and graduated from Safford High School. He married the love of his life, Felice (Cordova) Rios. Together they completed their family with two children, Adam & Juanita. They also have five fur babies. Gabriel loved being outdoors; he enjoyed camping, fishing & gardening. He had an exceptional "green thumb". All who knew Gabriel knew he was the biggest Arizona Cardinal fan. His cheerful attitude & bright smile will be missed. He was always laughing, happy, smiling & joking around. He was a hard worker, he would always lend a helping hand, but most of all he was exceptionally loyal to his family. Gabriel leaves behind numerous loving & cherished family members. They all will deeply miss him especially his pride and joy; his grandchildren Sergio, Gavin, & Brayden Rios. Gabriel is preceded in death by his parents, some siblings & the other angels of the Rios family.
