Honoring Savion Gabriel
Savion Christian Gabriel passed away on March 1, 2013 at the age of 22. He was born in Newton, NJ and recently relocated to Brentwood, TN. He is dearly loved by his mother, Sandra Furton Gabriel, sister Ataia Illiana Gabriel, and was preceded in death by his father, Wayne Tex Gabriel, a well-known musician. He is survived by his aunts: Sally Clark, of Michigan, Ayla Meurer of Maryland, Joyce Wade of Maryland, many cousins and a large group of friends, colleagues and associates who will miss his warm heart and compassionate smile.
Savion was a very caring and thoughtful person who would do absolutely anything for his friends and family. He was a devoted and trusted son, brother and friend. A graduate of Seneca Valley High School, he was a member of the Varsity football team and suffered many injuries but felt a passion for physical fitness and became a dedicated personal trainer. He went to Montgomery College for a two-year program and recently worked in the restaurant business. Savion was also an aspiring writer and artist.
To honor and celebrate his life, a memorial service will be held at 4:00p.m. on Sunday, March 10 at Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, TN with a reception immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Savion Gabriel Fund, 9 Music Square South #375, Nashville, TN 37203, which will help other young people who are struggling.
