Affectionately known as Charlie, he was born in the Town of Lewis, on the Gallo Homestead Farm on the West Leyden-Osceola Road at Swancott Mills, on December 21, 1922, a son of Bruno and Michalina Miniat Gallo. Charles grew up at Swancott Mills, where he received his education in a one room school, before completing his schooling at West Leyden Central School. After that he joined his family in the operation of the Gallo family farm.

On December 1, 1949, Charles was united in marriage with Lila Boardman at St. Mary's Church, West Leyden. After that the couple purchased a home on Freeman Road, (later named the Gallo Road) at Swancott Mills, where they lived until moving to their current residence in 1998.

In 1950, at Swancott Mills, Charlie and his brother, Art, founded what became the well known Gallo Bros. Construction and Logging Company.

In the early 1960's the company was expanded to include the construction of golf courses, and major state and county highways, as well as extensive site work connected with construction of shopping malls. In the 1980's the company completed major rock removal and site work for the Glen Park Hydro Power Facility, located on Black River, near Watertown, NY. Eventually the company headquarters were relocated to Boonville, and Mr. Gallo retired in 1987.

On May 25, 2006, in recognition for contributing significantly to the quality of life on Tug Hill, Charlie was bestowed with the title of "TUG HILL SAGE" a prestigious award given by the Tug Hill Commission.

Charlie greatly enjoyed his family, visiting with people everywhere and attending the New York State Woodsmen's Field Days.
