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.
Earlier Tuesday, the Orioles announced Gaba had been elected to the team's Hall of Fame as the second-ever recipient of The Wild Billy Hagy Award.
He also became an honorary Baltimore police lieutenant earlier this month.
All across the community people sent their condolences, including Governor Larry Hogan, the Baltimore Police Department, Ravens, the Orioles and star first baseman Trey Mancini, and 105.7 The Fan radio host Jeremy Conn.
Absolutely heartbroken by the passing of Mo Gaba, a bright light who brought joy to all who knew him and hope to everyone who heard his story. Our prayers go out to his family and loved ones. #MoStrong pic.twitter.com/O30flCokGo— Governor Larry Hogan (@GovLarryHogan) July 29, 2020

I can’t begin to put into words what I’m feeling. I tried to finish my show after I found out and I couldn’t. I am so privileged to call you a friend and to be a part of your life. You stole my heart. You accomplished more in 14 years than most do in a lifetime. I love you! pic.twitter.com/8gMN4JsXom— Jeremy Conn (@JeremyConn1057) July 29, 2020
