SSgt Angel Moroni Gazca

Fort Walton Beach - SSgt Angel Moroni Gazca, age 30, passed away unexpectedly in his home in Fort Walton Beach, Florida on September 12, 2021. His beloved German Shephard companion, Kali, joined him on his journey from this world to the next. Angel was born in Ventura, California on August 5th, 1991 to his loving, surviving parents, Benjamina Espinosa and Francisco Gazca. As an Airman, serving his country was something Angel felt proudly called to do, and during his first duty station overseas in South Korea, he met his beloved wife Mariel Araullo in 2015. Angel and Mariel's love endured through Angel's deployments to Stuttgart, Germany from August 2019 to December 2019 and again to Bahrain from September 2020 to February 2021. Together, their love gave his family the most beautiful blessing of all - their son Andrew Mason Gazca.

Through his dedication to his Air Force duties, Angel quickly advanced through the ranks from A1C to SrA by earning the achievement of Senior Airman Below the Zone and became a natural born leader. He was well known amongst his friends and family for his unique sense of humor. Angel was someone who maintained lifelong friends and always devoted time to them and his family. In addition to his son, spouse, and parents, Angel is survived by his younger brother Israel Gazca and his younger sister Navila Gazca. Angel's final resting place will be in Beal Memorial Cemetery with military honors. We ask that instead of flowers, donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project as this was an organization that Angel greatly admired and respected. Angel, an amazing father and husband, was self-sacrificing in nature, offering both his physical and mental health to provide for his family and country. Some examples include him volunteering for deployments when people were needed, putting himself in high stress situations in order to complete his oath, and helping his fellow peers to advance in their careers.

Finally, the Gazca family wishes to extend their most heartfelt gratitude to their U.S. Air Force family who guided them when they felt most lost and all of their and Angel's friends which they consider family. To the relatives who are far away yet made the effort to express their strong love and condolences for Angel - we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We deeply cherish you all in our hearts.

We will forever love you Angel, and never stop sharing the memories that we created together. This is not a farewell, but instead until we see you again. You will live on inside of our hearts eternally. Until we meet again.

Funeral services will be Sunday, September 19, 2021, at 3:00 PM at Emerald Coast Funeral Home. The family will receive friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow at Beal Memorial Cemetery with full military honors. Expressions of love and sympathy may be placed and viewed online at www.emeraldcoastfuneralhome.com
