My deepest condolences to the Gavitt family. I did not know Coach Gavitt personally, but he has been a large part of my " sport's life " at the very least. For a number of decades the Coach has been an inspirational leader and teacher of young people. He has demonstrated what hard work, enthusiasm and loyalty can produce. You have been wonderful neighbors to the City of East Providence and the world . His impact is far reaching and will live on forever.

Dave Gavitt embodied everything that was great, noble, and unique about Providence Basketball and the Big East. No one will ever be remembered more fondly.

Dear Julie and Family...I was a childhood friend in Peterborough, N.H. He helped me in shooting a good basket for our girl's team. We all were Basketball crazy, He started on Milts Tigers, before High School,and we knew right then that he would be great. All of his friends here are saddened, but glad to have had that time with him. Best wishes to your and your family....Jan Dolan; Peterborough,N.H.

Coach Gavitt was a great man and though I did not know him very well, I want to thank him for his loyalty and dedication to PC and the entire basketball world!

Thank you Coach for three of my most favorite moments.

Thank you for the 1973 Final Four season! That was a fun ride to be on.

Thank you for the 1976 win over number 1 Michigan and of course when we played North Carolina during the Great Blizzard of '78. I along with 6 to 7,000 people walked to that game to see that famous 4 corner offense led by Phil Ford and yet we BEAT them.

But most of all Coach, thank you for putting a little Catholic school on the map. As much as you loved PC, the PC community loves you right back!

I can see Coach Gavitt along with Coach Mullaney and Coach Wooden diagraming x's and o's right now.

To Gavitt Family,

Dave was a very special man; humble, accomplished and the paragon of sophistication. Dave was equally comfortable in the company of a CEO or with the man working under the hood of his car. I am a former radio announcer for St. John's in the Big East which was under his stewardship,of course. As such, Coach Gavitt indirectly enhanced my career. I'm forever grateful. He will be greatly missed by many more than you can imagine.
