Gavin Caramella was born in Tucson, Arizona to his mother Lynne Reive and father Keith Caramella on September 2nd, 1999. He departed this world on March 20, 2020 at the age of 20. Gavin was survived by his mother Lynne Reive, father Keith Caramella, his brother Ayden Bennett, his sisters Kaylyn Lusk and Danise Caramella.

Gavin was the oldest of 4 siblings. He loved art, music and horticulture. He loved to make people smile and spread his thirst for life to everyone he met. Even though his life was short, he encouraged so many to be themselves and see the light and beauty in everything. He was our North star guiding us home.

Gavin was much loved by all. His family especially. His uncles Tom Reive, Daniel Moran, Derrick Caramella, and Tony Caramella helped shape him into the man he became. His aunt's Erica Morrison, Karan Reive and Alina Reive whom nurtured him and instilled kindness and love. Also his cousins Alexa Reive, Trystan Moran, Tiare Barrett, and Raymond Sanchez whom instilled bonds of family and loyalty.

Gavin worked in the food industry, typically as a cook or barista. He was working on his business degree with a minor in art and fashion.

Gavin was a unique soul, full of creativity, love, kindness, and generosity. His spark was contagious, the brightest to those who knew him. For all of his friends and family the world seems darker without him.

Words escape me all these days, everything is so surreal. I just hope you knew how much I loved you.

I have never met someone like you. I have never met someone like me, who reminded me of all the things beautiful in this world, or who could hold so much love for the people around them, despite their faults and failings. You loved every one of your friends, and demonstrated your love in such a way that I hope to be. Never have I met someone else who cares so deeply for the well-being of others. I have never met another person like you, and sadly I don't think I ever will. You were unique, and I thank god every day that I ever got to know you at all.

I will never forget the Cafe and getting to know you through hours upon hours upon days that we spent there, until it was no more. I will never forget the "Elvis Depressedly," the dankest breakfast sandwich to ever grace the menu. LoFi ringing through the office, all the days where you practically lived at my house. It all seems so far away now.

I wish I would have held you tighter the last time we hugged. You are my best friend, and no matter how my life turns out, I will never forget you. I don't think I ever could.

I hope to continue all our projects and dreams in the afterlife, my friend. You'll be with me always.

Gavinā¤ you will always be the most interesting person I have ever met. I remember walking by shot and seeing your beanie in the smoking room, i thought it was super sick because I never seen someone stud there beanie before. I remember working overnights with you and doing espresso shots in the kitchen we would make funny sounds because it tasted so bad, i told you that you could take a nap if you wanted to but you would stay up with me anyways. I remember I stayed in the back office when I had Sinclaire call the security to remove that racist scary biker dude out from the cafe and you stayed back there with me comforting me because I was so scared he was going to shoot us lol. We ate homefries together that night and you burned your arm with a match. When we became roommates I thought it would be awkward at first but it wasn't, you were so easy to just hangout with all the time I didn't feel like I had to try and get comfortable because I immediately already felt like I was home living with you. You got me a job and we would go to work together dreading it so much, I remember that week you were late everyday because we would stop to get yerba mattes at co op. You would always be so sarcastic to people and I just loved watching you make our boss mad, I remember you making me tea in your fancy tea pot thing when I had heart burn for like 3 hours, that was so nice thank you. I remember all of us playing that ICP board game that you bought a prize for. I remember us walking to QT for snacks amd cigarettes at 3 in the morning. I remember crying with you in your room, I remember laughing at adult swim with you, I remember yelling at customers with you, and standing outside cold nights with you. I remember you saying you were proud of me after I got out of the hospital. I remember waving goodbye to you the last time we saw each other. I hugged you so quick because I was late to that interview. I said I'd see you later.. I love you Gavin, always.
Ill see you later love..

My Dearest Gavin,
I don't know if you truly knew how much you ment to me . You were like a son . The many countless adventures we were on and how many times you came and lived with me and your cousins . It's hard to believe you are gone . I sit here in the funeral home . With your Mom and Uncle Tommy and Aunt Karan . To help arrange your viewing and cremation . I am dieing inside . I will never forget the times I got to hang out with you and share a moment in time together . I will always be so thankful I got to know you and be apart of your world . From sitting and watching IT chapter 1 & 2 . To building the little room for ya . To all the other amazing moments we got to share and experience together . A piece of my heart died the moment I found out my life would no longer share another moment or go on another adventure with you . My life will never be the same , without you . May you find your place in the heavenly cozmos , and show the universe the true meaning of beauty !!
