Obituary: Gavin Greene, 17, a loving brother and friend with ‘wicked smart abilities’

Gavin Greene

"Gavin may have been quiet to many, but once he got going, he had a sharp wit, wicked smart abilities (especially when he turned in his homework) and the best sense of humor if you appreciate it a bit dry and laced with sarcasm."

Gavin Cameron Greene was born on December 16, 2003, to two very proud parents Tom and Missy Greene of Redondo Beach, Cal. Gavin spent his early years making sandcastles on the beach, eating Roscoe’s chicken and waffles, and memorizing EVERY fish in the Long Beach Aquarium while strolling his baby sister, Addison, who made an appearance a couple of years later. He always loved his sister.

When the Greene family moved back to Lenexa, he was almost 3 years old. They hit the family jackpot with all the grandparents nearby. They moved into Nani and Papa’s while their new home construction was wrapping up. They enjoyed Grammy and Grumpa Fridays with their cousins, Katie and Harrison Greene, and sleepovers at B & E’s with more cousins Dylan, Abby and Bella Snodgrass. Gavin will always hold special the adventures he would take with his Grandad and the good times and more mature laughs with his older cousins Doug, Alyssa and Amanda LaCroix. He was well-loved by his adoring aunts and uncles.
