BALTIMORE — Many knew him for his contagious laugh and unwavering support for Baltimore sports.

A resident of Glen Burnie, Mo began calling in to a radio program on 105.7 The Fan in 2015 when he was 9-years-old.

At just nine-months-old, Gaba lost his eyesight to a malignant tumor. He had battled cancer four different times throughout his life.
