OBITUARY: Gavin “Chance” Smith Hearon

Gavin “Chance” Smith Hearon, 19 years old of Odessa, Texas, was called home to be with the Lord Saturday, January 6. He was residing in Alpine, Texas. Gavin “Chance” was born at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa on September 24, 2004, to parents Andon Smith and Kelli Hearon. It was love at first sight. With his crystal blue eyes and jet black hair, he was forever imprinted on our hearts. He persevered and graduated October 2023 from Marathon High School. His family was so very proud. 

Gavin was an angelic soul. He blessed this earth with his genuine heart and loving presence. He was a stranger to no one and made friends everywhere he went. He was an amazing son, brother, and grandson. He has left us all with long lasting and impressionable memories that will stay with us for a lifetime. Gone but never forgotten. 

We would like to personally thank each and everyone of you for all the heartfelt prayers and support. May God bless you all abundantly.
