A gathering of family and friends for Gavin will be held Friday, September 23, 2022 from 2-4 pm and from 6-8 pm at Baldwin-Fairchild Oaklawn Chapel, 5000 County Road 46A, Sanford, FL 32771.

We know many people are anxious to support our family and Gavin’s legacy. For this we will be forever grateful. Thank you. We are in the process of establishing a charitable foundation in Gavin’s name. Gavin gave the BEST hugs. We are proud to announce the formation of Gavin’s Hugs Inc. Gavin’s Hugs is a not for profit organization that will support a variety of charitable, religious, educational, and scientific purposes. Our goal for this charity is to honor our Gavin by perpetuating his kindness. We have worked hard over the past several days to properly establish this organization in short order. The organization has been formally accepted by the state of Florida and approved by the IRS. We are currently awaiting an Employer Identification Number (EIN). A website and other details are forthcoming. We are actively working on opening a bank account, setting up Venmo, etc to be able to accept donations. Please be patient with us. We are excited to get Gavin’s Hugs Inc. up and running and ready to spread Gavin’s legacy of kindness.
