Savannah Kay Gass, 31, of Keystone Heights passed away suddenly on September 3rd, 2020.
She was born in Apopka, FL on July 14th, 1989, delivered at home by her father, Daniel Gass. She graduated from Deltona High School with Honors in 2007 and went on to attend a number of colleges throughout the state before returning to her family, now in Keystone Heights.
Savannah was creative and artistic, especially in drawing and decorating. Her favorite holiday was Halloween, and she loved heavy metal and the macabre. She was kind and soft-spoken, always seeing the good in others. The depth of her compassion and selflessness were apparent to all who met her, most commonly through her years of service at Johnny’s BBQ & Catering. Her character and temperament created a town-wide presence of adoration; now a pervasive sense of loss.
She is survived by her parents, Daniel Gass and Dana Ruiz Gallelli; and their respective spouses, Patti Dobler and Joseph Gallelli. Her grandmother, Marcie Gass; sisters, Kelsea Gass and Kelly McCord; and stepsisters, Kasey Lott and Jacylyn Atcachunas; as well as eight nieces and nephews.
Savannah will be greatly missed by those who loved her, including the entirety of the town. As we all mourn her loss, we may remember her beautiful spirit, kindness, and humility.
A memorial service for Savannah will be held on Saturday, September 12th, 2020 at 11AM, at Keystone United Methodist Church in Keystone Heights. She will be buried at Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery on Sunday, September 13th, 2020, in Gainesville, FL.
