HALLOWELL — Gavin Elliott Gabrion, 34, of Hallowell, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018.

Gavin, the son of Patrick and Vicky Gabrion of Hallowell, was born on Aug. 19, 1984, in Augusta, Maine. He attended Hallowell schools and later earned his GED with a near perfect score. He had a wide range of jobs, from doorman at a gentlemen’s club to cleaning paper mills throughout the nation.

Besides his parents, Gavin is survived by his sister, Sophie Gabrion, of Waldo, Maine; paternal grandmother, Mary Gabrion of Ithaca, Michigan, and several uncles, aunts and cousins.

Gavin was highly intelligent and had a lifelong love of learning. He lived on his own terms, no matter the cost, and had a strong sense of what was right and just. He was fiercely loyal and he loved deeply.
