Gavin Muir Jacobs, a safety technician, died unexpectedly Aug. 18, 2018 at the age of 36.
Gavin was born in Leesburg, VA on April 2, 1982, and is survived by his parents, Marybeth Muir and Ramon (Bud) Jacobs; step-mother Janice Pittleman; wife Kara Jacobs (nee Mills); children Tiana Jacobs, Riley Jacobs, and Ryan Jacobs; and his brother Will Jacobs. He was preceded in death by his grandparents Helen and Alexander Muir and Robert L. Spinks and Ora Lu Miller-Spinks.
As a child Gavin was full of compassion and curiosity. A giving and caring child who grew up to be a loving and caring husband, father and son. An avid fisherman, hiker and traveler, these passions took him around the world. He visited more than 10 countries and enjoyed experiencing foreign cultures and natural beauty. He also enjoyed recounting his travels with anyone who would listen. The one thing he loved the most was being a father and husband. He reveled in his children’s laughter and his spirit remains with us today through their joy.
