Faith Community Church, 355 D street, in Fillmore, CA.
Gabriel James Tapia 24, died unexpectedly, on November 16th 2014, in Medford, OR. , but is a true Ventura County native. He left behind many loved ones, his loving wife Karman and beautiful son Friday age 4, whom were the loves of his life, also, his parents Paula and Jason Hiott, and father Gaston Tapia, grandmother ConnieHearne, grandparents Gloria and Javier Tapia, great-grandparent’s Walt and Marge Birch, aunt Samantha Hearne, brothers: Anthony Garcia, Antonio and Jr. Tapia, and JJ Hiott. Along with his sisters, Jazmin Rivera, Jaylea, and Hannah Hiott, as well as many cousins, great aunt’s, and uncle’s, and many friends who loved him dearly. The family takes comfort in knowing that Gabriel, a believer in Christ is no longer suffering, and is rejoicing in the Lord’s presence. Rev 21:4 says, That God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.” Gabe had a huge heart and loved everyone and would do anything he could to help others. Against all odds he graduated from high school, and completed vocational school for solar energy. In Oregon he worked as a tree arborist, and worked on a hand crew during fire season. Gabriel was good with his hands and could fix most anything, but was mostly obsessed with cars. He will be greatly missed.
