As a fellow high school student, Gavin was a calming force for us all. Reconnecting 10 years ago Gav summed up our history with our new found friendships with of course writing a beautiful song & he posted our pics (past & present) on YouTube. That’s what Gav did. His heart was in everything. He had the biggest heart. A beautiful man taken way, way too early. We are all shocked & we will miss you Gav. Thanks for the treasure you gave us. Our deepest sympathies go to Andrea & all the extended families.January 1, 2021
