Local Hemp activist dies

Gavin O'Dell, a tireless hemp activist passed away on Monday, August 14th. All are encouraged to attend his funeral.
Many of you remember Gavin O'Dell from his work with Rolling Thunder. Or maybe Mohemp. Or when he worked at It's a Beautiful Day. Or the Sierra Club. Or maybe he copied a 9-11 dvd for you.

I'm sorry to report that Gavin passed away Monday and his funeral is Sunday at 2pm at the 1st Central Church of the Brethren at 103 N 13th Street, Kansas City, Kansas. Visitation starts at 12:30 at the church.

Here's a link to a photo of Gavin from November of '03:

Re: Local Hemp activist dies

I am very sorry to hear of Gavin's death. My condolenses to his friends and family.

Mike introduced Gavin to me while setting up tables for Rolling Thunder and he seemed a very sweet, cheerful and loving soul. The day this photo was snapped was an especially bitter cold day at Mill Creek Park, but Gavin was his cheerful and helpful self even wearing a light jacket. A big, heartful loss for Kansas City.
