What a good guy, just met him for 3hrs and left a never ending impression. RIP guy…

    This is such sad news. I sold (mentioned above) to Gavin a few years back and he was nothing but a gentleman and a scholar. I was busy with negotiating sale of another domain to him and then he went quiet and I wondered what had happened and then shockingly stumbled across this article today. My sincere condolences go out to Gavin’s family, friends and colleagues.

    I meet Gavin while I used to work for a local towing company I got called out to help him with his Mercedes at the time, he made a big impression on me since I saw how kind and sure he seemed about his company and told me to contact him if I ever needed anything, he gave me such a great vibe I kept his very unique business card, I was about to contact him today and saw that the website wasn’t available any longer so I google him and came to this sad news on this website. I wanted to tell him that now I’m the proud owner of a growing successful Construction Business and if I could help him with anything I was here to return his great vibes he once made me feel. I really hope his family knows how in such few minutes he would impact people’s life’s. may his soul Rest In Peace.

  8. @ Mitchell, do you still do domains?
