September 12, 2023 (95 years old)
In the ebb and flow of life, there are moments that profoundly touch our hearts. Today, we reflect upon the life of Neil P. Gavin from O’Fallon, Illinois. Born in the historic city of East Saint Louis, Illinois, Neil walked on this earth with grace, bringing joy and warmth to those fortunate to have known him. As we mark his peaceful departure on September 12, 2023, at the honorable age of 95, our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.
Neil was embraced in heaven by his parents, William L. Gavin and Stella. His legacy lives on through his loving wife, Marjorie “Marge”, their dedicated children, Bonnie Branson (Carl), William Gavin (Kate), Vicki Whitley (Charles), Mary Kay Prader (David), and Robert Gavin of O’Fallon, IL. A special mention of his devoted grandson, Matthew Branson, married to Tiffany, and the delightful presence of 12 great-grandchildren who were his joy.
As we gather to honor and celebrate his remarkable journey, a visitation has been arranged on Saturday, September 16th, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the First Baptist Church located at 1111 E Hwy 50, O’Fallon, IL 62269. Following this, a service to commemorate Neil’s life will be held at 12:00 PM at the same cherished location.
In memory of Neil and his unwavering faith, contributions can be made to the First Baptist Church, O’Fallon, IL – Building Fund. Let us remember the love and wisdom he bestowed upon us all.
