El pasado martes 9 de Enero de 2024, tres días antes de su décimo octavo cumpleaños, nuestro amado Gabriel “Gabe” Gonzalo Escandon Arizaleta vólo a reunirse con Jesus, el Divino Maestro. Había nacido el 12 de Enero de 2006, en Atlanta, Georgia USA, y fueron sus padres Camilo Escandon y Yhaimar Arizaleta. En toda su brillante trayectoria estudiantil, cumplió siempre con honores, tanto en sus escuelas elemental, intermedia y secundaria estas últimas en “Hightower Trail Middle School” y “Allan C. Pope High School” donde culminaba su último año, con su prevista graduación el 22 de Mayo del 2024. Mostró a todos un elevado sentido del humor, una contagiosa sonrisa y un corazón compasivo; gozando siempre del aprecio de familiars y amigos. Gabriel brindó el tiempo justo y necesario a todos aquellos que le rodeaban; extendido a sus profesores y compañeros de clases.Desde niño sobresalió por un gran talento y espíritu deportivos, especialmente en futbol, pickleball y golf, siendo además un experto en el primero de ellos. En sus recientes horas libres trabajaba en una afamada tienda deportiva de la cual fuera antes un cliente frecuente. Gabriel era gran aficionado al buen cine y música, y disfrutaba de todas sus manifestaciones y estilos desde melodias cristianas, hip-hop y country; hasta los ritmos latinos propios de sus herencias colombianas y venezolanas. Fue siempre un ferviente creyente en Cristo y sus mandatos, y le encantaba compartir esa fé. Le sobreviven ahora sus amados padres Camilo y Yhaimar, sus hermanos David, Wiley, Beckham, Tucker y Simón; así como sus padrastros Matthew y María Isabel; y sus abuelos Ceila, Jose Francisco y Yhaira. Pedimos ahora unirse a nosotros para recordar la vida feliz, hermosa, impactante y brillante que vivió Gabriel para honrar a Dios.
