At a Monday morning Mass for his slain father, Assemblyman Mike Gatto fought back tears as he described the deep pain and sadness that have filled his family's days since his father was found shot to death in his Silver Lake home earlier this month.
Joseph Gatto, 78, was found dead on Nov. 13. His home had been ransacked and he was found dead from a gunshot wound to his abdomen. The Los Angeles Police Department's investigation into the incident is ongoing, the Glendale News-Press reported.
He would take thousands of photos on family vacations, collect art from all over the world. He planted vines and made his own mixture of hummingbird food so he could capture the small birds on film, Mariann Gatto said during the nearly two-hour service.
