Gavin Ross Knupp, 14, of Ocean Pines, passed away following a tragic accident on Monday, July 11, 2022.

Born on June 13, 2008 in Salisbury, he was the son of Raymond Knupp of Salisbury and Tiffany Knupp (Frye) of Ocean Pines.

Gavin was an outdoor enthusiast. He loved hunting, fishing, surfing and skateboarding.

He will be remembered for his great sense of humor, his ability to light up a room and his exceptional character.

He made friends everywhere he went and will be missed by everyone who knew him. Everyone who had the honor of knowing Gavin is better for doing so.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Jeff Beach.
