Gavin Werner


Gavin James Werner of Murray, Iowa left this life unexpectedly at the age of 15, on May 27, 2021. Gavin was born on August 31, 2005 to parents Jeff and Kim Werner. Gavin attended Murray Community Schools, where he recently completed his freshman year.

Additionally, Gavin took pride in his role as the middle child of three boys, looking up to his older brother Logan, and showing his younger brother Drake the ropes. His baby sister Morgan, completely stole his heart.

Gavin was preceded in death by his beloved Papa Ralph Akers, great grandmothers Jackie Jameson, Lois Morris, Naomi Akers, and great grandfathers Dalbert Akers and Bill Werner.
