Gerardo Gary Ruvio was born on January 13, 1983 in North Carolina. He entered into rest on Thursday, May 31, 2018 in Boise, Idaho. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday, June 8th at Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell with burial to follow at Canyon Hill Cemetery, Caldwell.
Gary is survived by his son, Xavier Ruvio, his parents Florina and Ruben Ureña, and his siblings Florina Ruvio, Veronika Ruvio, Ricky Ruvio, Salena Ruvio Ayers, and Juan Antonio Ponce. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and his grandfather, Rafael Ruvio.
Gary was known for his outgoing personality and his infectious smile. It got him into trouble as much as it got him out of it. He was usually charming, which is why he often chose to work in sales. However, Gary’s true passion was music, and it was apparent to anyone who had ever seen him perform on stage.
Gary loved to make people laugh and always had something funny to say. He was amused by life even though it was not always kind to him. Gary often said the greatest day of his life was the day his son, Xavier Lawrence Ruvio, was born. He was a proud father, a loyal friend, an obnoxious (but very loved) brother, and a loving son.
Most people do not know that Gary was an avid reader. One of his favorite books was The Outsiders. It seems fitting to now remember him with the Robert Frost poem referenced in that book:
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
