Duarte Family

This incredible man left all of us way too soon! He was an incredible husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He mastered heroism by teaching every single person he came into contact with the true meaning of life!  He had the courage of 10 men. The strength of an army and had something to be thankful each and everyday. Gavin Duarte was the kindest, most gentle human being.  His quick wittedness, since of humor and his gentle smile stole the hearts of all that knew him.   While battling cancer for the last three years, he made it his mission to teach us that we should all be living as if it were our last days on earth.  He was selfless and giving in so many ways!  He only had to meet you once, and then you were family.  Gavin longed for heaven in the last few months of his life.  His faith  gave him peace. And although he was ready, we were not.  Gavin leaves behind a beautiful bride, and his children.  We  created this page in an effort to help the family with medical expenses, services and any related costs.  The family is extremely humbled by the outpouring of support and grateful for your generosity. ♥️
