Gavin Dustin Milo O'Bryant

Our precious angel, Gavin Dustin Milo O'Bryant, left us to go play in Heaven on April 8, 2011.
Born in Kirkland, WA on March 20, 2006; bringing nothing but joy and love into the world from that very first moment. Gavin was a fearless, adventurous, perfect little boy with a contagious laugh and a smile and dimples no one could ever say no to! He loved his super heroes, lions, video games and the color green. Even at such a young age he was gifted on the basketball court. When he was particularly proud of a move out on the court, out of nowhere, he would stop everything and give his parents a "salute". He was entertaining in so many ways, especially with his signature dance moves. Gavin wanted to be a police officer when he grew up, just like his daddy.
Gavin is preceded in death by grandfathers, Herbert O'Bryant and David Peterman; aunt, Rhonda Perkins; and uncle, Dustin Henthorn. We take comfort in knowing these angels were waiting for our boy with loving arms.
Although Gavin was only with us for a short time, he touched so many lives. He is survived by his parents, Cyrus and Reshelle O'Bryant; sisters, Mariah and McKenna O'Bryant; grandmothers, Hamideh O'Bryant and Rita Peterman, grandparents, Dwight and Lynda Little; uncles and aunts, Robert Pinte, Richard Pinte, Seth and Melissa Almli; cousin and best friend, Aidan Little; and special friend Claire Mitchell.

Gavin, Sweet Gavin
by Julie Mainstone

Gavin, sweet Gavin
It just isn't fair
You were taken from us
We are lost in despair

Our hearts feel empty
Without you here
You gave a lifetime of love
In just five short years

You loved silky tags
And Robert your toy
Superheroes and sports
What an amazing boy

We'll miss your wet kisses
And hugs, oh so tight
Though times "inappropriate"
You were such a delight

Your deep, husky voice
One cool little guy
With brown eyes and long lashes
Spitting image of your dad Cy

Thoughts of you playing
Make us smile with joy
Your laughter and dance moves
Such a funny, funny boy

But right now we're sad
We'll just have to cry
Since you are gone
We don't understand why

Life must go on
How, we don't know
Our little boy, Gavin
We miss you so

Gavin, sweet Gavin
We know it's okay
Because you're in Heaven
With Dustin today
