"Hold him in your memory..find him in your dreams." I would see Gavyn when he would come in for his appointments and there was never a single day that he did not have a huge smile on his face! Or he didn't have his arm around his dad or his dad did not have his hand on his shoulder! Their bond was amazing! This world lost a beautiful soul! May his memories last forever and ease the pain of broken hearts! Carrie @ Bright Ortho

It was a beautiful service. Thank you for live streaming it for us. And for sharing you thoughts, memories, hopes and grief. My heart is breaking. My love and support, is constant. Such sorrow and longing for this beautiful, giving young man. Gavyn and I would always sit together, at the Rise Together presentations. Even though we lived and knew the stories being told, he seemed to know when the hardest parts of my story would come up?! He would squeeze my hand a little tighter. Or his arm would pull me a little bit closer. When it was his dads turn to speak, he would lean in. Totaly focused on the words. He was 2 generations younger then I, but we had much in common.. Douglas and I would say, "he was an old soul." I would often sit back and watch Gavyn, as he interacted with his dad. Anthony, would look at him with shining eyes. He was easy to read. It was clearly 100% joy, wonder and pride. Gavyn would absolutely glow and bask in the attention from others. Always with humility and confidence. He would be focused. And made you feel as if you were the only one in the room. Something truly special in one his age. It is a testament to his family of being raised so well. My family and I are so grateful in meeting and getting to him. Our lives are better, with having him in it. Gavyn, you were such an easy kid to love. You are loved deeply. You will be missed. Fly high, My Boy 💞 Always remember; Tami Darby Anderson & Eric, Douglas, Andrew, Mitchel and Alyssa

Gavyn is going to be greatly missed by me and many others from Kimberly high school. I had Gavyn in multiple classes junior year and I tried to get him to stay in class and do his work and would help him.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.(NIV) Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 May god bless you and watch over you in your time of need. With deepest sympathy, Dave

Julie left a message on May 22, 2020:
I’m so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Gavyn, but I lost 2 nephews (ages 23 and 20) 3days apart in 2017. They both struggled with addiction. My son is a student at Kimberly and told me about his passing to heaven. We know they’re in a better place and free. I prayed for my nephews to welcome Gavyn to heaven. Hold your memories dear. Light a light for him each day. He will watch over you all. My deepest sympathies for your family. Rest In Peace Gavyn.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I knew Gavyn when he was young, back at Boys & Girls Club and then again at KA. He always had an energy and spirit that kept me on my toes. My favorite things about him were his wit, his smile, and his love for basketball. Your entire family will be in my prayers. Deepest condolences.

Losing a young man due to addiction is terrible. At the pinnacle of his life, drugs had the last word. Hopefully, others will learn what doing illegal drugs can do to anyone. Please think twice before using or get the help you need to get clean and sober. RIP Gavyn

I will forever remember Gav and Alex running around the apartment as little boys. Gav was happy, full of joy, and had the most energy. Constant juice mustache and a buzzed blonde head. He made me a better 20 something. Much love.
