TAYLOR, Gavin

Posted by on June 14, 2017

Died suddenly on May 28, 2017 at 20 years of age.  Beloved son of Jenn and Keith.  Big and loving brother of Gage and Grant.   Gavin was a cherished grandson, nephew and cousin and will be missed by his family and friends.  Special friend of Karina.  Gavin was newly enrolled in an apprenticeship program at St. Clair College.  Gavin Taylor was a kind hearted, smart, outgoing guy who had nothing but love and respect to his family and friends. He could make you laugh for hours over the smallest things. He most definitely was the life of the party. Always taking an adventure with courage and excitement.  Always down for anything. Gavin was someone who would bend over backwards for anyone he cared about through thick and thin. It is absolutely heart breaking to see a happy and warm-hearted guy pass away so soon. He had the biggest impact on everyone in his life; memories of Gavin will never vanish.  He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

If you so desire, donations to the Canadian Mental Health Association would be appreciated.
