Funeral for Gaelen Schwindt

Gaelen Schwindt (the tallest guy in the picture here with August Burns Red) was one of the greatest people to ever grace this planet. He could go anywhere and make a friend. Whether it was the gas station (No Pants Guy), the grocery store, a show, work, a restaurant, a bar, a party, or school, G-man was the kind of guy that people wanted to be around because he was able to bring happiness to anyone.

G was funny to the point where he could make anyone laugh or at least smile. His humor was genius and he could pinpoint what kind of humor someone might need for any situation. His shenanigans are pretty well known by everyone who had the chance to meet him and everyone who knew him has at least one memory of when he made them laugh.

He was also unbelievably smart. If something interested him, he had the ability to learn about it use that knowledge immediately. He could retain knowledge on a wide range of subjects and focus on a problem until he knew how to solve it.

Gaelen was a passionate person and he liked a lot of things. He loved cars, knives, and video games. He loved a wide range of music as well; one day he'd be rocking out to Slipknot and the next day he'd be cruising around while listening to funk.  He loved being outdoors, whether it be at the Lime Rock Race Track, Steep Rock, Campbell falls or Long Pond, he loved it. He was all about nature and the beauty in it.  He really like Rick and Morty and Avatar, as well as a long list of movies. He adored anything that Corey Taylor produced, whether it be his music or literature.

Gaelen will be greatly missed by so many. His family is asking for $5000 to cover the costs of a cremation and cards for people to take with them in remembrance, as well as any other memorial costs that may arise. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.

Although Gaelen is no longer with us in the way might want, he is with us in our hearts and through our memories. He truly cared for so many people and that has not changed under these circumstances. There will be plenty of events in his honor and people are welcome to message myself (Brianna Schwindt) for details on events or even just to talk.
Rest in Peace, Gaelen Schwindt <3
