POLLARD, Gabriel Born March 6th, 2002 Died Tragically June 21, 2018 Gabriel was an artist, a gourmet, mentor and animal lover (especially his cats Beatrice and Oscar). He was a community activist and loved everything about trains, Lego, and sailing. Gabe was an enthusiastic hockey and baseball fan, an equestrian, a romantic and bon vivant. He did not allow Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy to define him. Styling himself a maverick, he was just coming into his own. A young man, his future full of promise despite the condition which was relentless. He fought and succeeded in keeping that dragon at bay. Thank you Gabe for being a most excellent son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, superhero, and friend. Your absence has left a gaping hole in our world. Our house is too quiet. I will forever miss everything about you. You are my superhero, my teacher and son. Love Mom. Our heartfelt gratitude to those who helped in Gabe's rescue. The paramedics, nurses, and doctors at VGH who tried so hard to save him. A special thank you to Shona, Mom, Linda at Helping Hands. The Hunter clan and Earth's Option. Thank you Ava, David, Marcus, and Trish, and the multitude of family and friends bearing gifts of food, flowers, beautiful tributes, loving kindness, and financial contributions. We welcome family and friends to join us for a celebration of Gabe's life on August 11th at Pearkes Arena Gym at 1:00 pm.
