Gavin Michael Ward, 16, of Hebron, KY, passed away on Friday, July 16, 2021 at his residence after his 2 year fight with DIPG. Gavin was such an old soul, a warrior, a ball of energy, a selfless lover of people, a passionate car enthusiast, but most important to Gavin was spending time with his family, whom he loved dearly.

Gavin was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Michael Slayback.

He is survived by his loving mother, Jennifer (Brandon Kleisinger) Ward; his father, Ryan Ward; his siblings, Kayli and Cameron Ward; his maternal grandmother, Dawn Duncan;  his paternal grandparents Gina Ward and David Massengale and numerous friends.

Gavin also leaves behind his nephew, Ryder Richter.
