Virden RCMP responded to the accident scene at a gravel pit about three kms west of Elkhorn.

They said it appeared the youth, who was wearing a helmet, was not aware of the steep drop on the other side of a pile of gravel and rolled over. Two others who were riding with him went for help. 

A celebration of Gavin's life will be held at the Elk's Hall in Elkhorn this afternoon, Thursday, June 14 at 2:00 p.m.
