“We are holding the Wendricks family, a pillar of the Mad-City family, close in our hearts with the news of their most beloved son’s passing. Gavin is gone far too soon and we will all remember his joy for life and infectious smile. It was difficult to keep a straight face around Gavin, known for his silliness and wit.
