Born on June 2, 1952, to the
late Rosina and Clayton Gianocca at Mills Hospital in San Mateo, Calif., he
was a longtime Coastside resident known by all for his kindness,
ability to make friends wherever he went, his unique dark sense of
humor, unstoppable energy and, above all, his compassion.
He was a third-
generation Coastside resident, graduating from Half Moon Bay High School in 1970.
After high school, Skip played baseball for a local minor league team,
and was well-known for wearing the No. 5 and being invited to play for
the San Francisco Giants B League team.
He then went on to start a 25-year, loyal career with BFI, and in 1982 moved to a quiet country home on a couple
of acres in San Gregorio, Calif., with the wife and mother of his two
children, twins Travis and Tara. He learned how to work the land, raising animals and
becoming well-known and loved by locals.
Upon retiring from BFI in 1999, Skip took a land manager position for
Djerassi, a nonprofit artist residency program in Woodside, Calif. He
shared 13 years meeting and helping artists create incredible work and
building many friendships along the way.
Skip was an extremely hard-working man, but he also knew how to have
fun. As an avid sportsmen and a die-hard fisherman, Skip had a love
and appreciation for nature that he would happily share with anyone.
In his most recent years, he moved back to Half Moon Bay and could
often be found enjoying an early morning cup of coffee at Moonside
Bakery, driving around in his cherry-red Porsche 356, or working in
his front yard and enjoying the company of others.
Skip Gianocca is survived by his sister Cheryl Soucie, her son and his
nephew David Soucie, the mother of his children, MaryAnn Gianocca, son Travis James Gianocca, daughter Tara Gianocca Rowland,
her husband, Justin Rowland, and grandchildren Isabella Rowland, age 5,
and Alexandra Rowland age 1 1/2.
A celebration of Skip’s life will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 5, 2014, at the San Benito House in Half Moon Bay.
