Obituary of Gavin Michael Hoeper
Gavin Michael Hoeper, age 6 of San Diego, CA gained his angel wings on Tuesday, February 26th 2019.
With his blonde hair, blue eyes and a contagious smile, Gavin easily lit up any room he was in. He spread love and smiles wherever he went.
Gavin was happiest when he was outside. He loved going on long walks and being surrounded by kids; their happiness and laughter brought him great joy.
He loved being with his family and would “gently” request to watch his favorites- Frozen and Mickey Mouse on repeat.
Gavin’s short life on Earth taught his loved ones so much about strength, adversity and overcoming odds. We love him & miss him. Gavin will be remembered as the best part of his family’s lives.
Gavin is survived by:
Parents: Jeanine Taft of Addison, New York & Adam Powers of Colorado Springs, Colorado
Sister: Gabriella Laine
Grandparents: Rebecca Taft of Addison, New York, Mark Spicer (Karla) of Newport, Tennessee, Tracie and Ted Brittner of Hermiston, Oregon
Great Grandparents: Jeanine & Ervin Taft, Karen Salyer Smith

And an enormous amount of additional loving relatives, friends, teachers and therapists.
