Julian Gaviria

from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

Julian Gaviria, age 52, of Philadelphia, PA, passed away suddenly in West Palm Beach, FL. on January 1st, 2019 while on vacation visiting his family.

A visitation service will be held on January 12th at 10 a.m., following a commemorative service in his honor at 11 a.m. at Nativity BVM Church located at 2535 E Allegheny Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19134. A reception will follow the funeral at Fran Lee Caterers located at 4556 Almond St, Philadelphia, PA 19137 at 12:30 p.m.

Julian was born in Bogota, Columbia on June 20th, 1966. He came to this country at the age of 6 years old along with his mother, brother, and sister. He welcomed a new sister soon after. He always had a go-getter mindset and a welcoming personality. Julian spent his life doing great things, like becoming a skilled entrepreneur, a father, a husband, a brother, a great friend, and a very generous person with an enormous heart. His first calling and the one dearest to his heart was being a hairdresser. He picked up this skill at a very young age and went on to have his own business. Later in life, he decided to have his own construction business which he was extremely passionate about.

No matter what Julian did, he always did it with pride and determination and tried to give it his all. He knew how to make something out of nothing. He always helped those in need and offered his time and effort to anyone and everyone. Even though he was a very emotional guy, he never let anything get him down and he always remained optimistic. The thing that he was most passionate about and gave it his absolute best was being a father to his son Dominic. The bond they shared was not like anything else. His son was his whole world, and anyone who had the chance to know Julian saw that in him right away.

Julian is survived by his loving wife (Edyta) who he was married to for 12 years, their son (Dominic), his children (Andre and Steven), and his step-daughter (Patrycja), his parents (Bertha and Florencio Merced), brothers ( Mickey and Delwis) and sisters (Patricia and Edna), niece (Serena) and nephews ( Alexis, Jeremy, and Jason), and other family and friends.

We all miss him very dearly and we hope that he is with God watching over us.

The family of Julian Gaviria wishes to thank everyone who has reached out with their condolences during this difficult time and we hope to see you all on Saturday to help celebrate his life.

    To the Family. I am sorry for your loss and hope this scripture bring some comfort at this time. I hope this scripture bring some comfort at this time. Revelation 21:4- And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,+ and death will be no more,+neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.”

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. Please accept my deepest condolences to your family. He sounds like he was an amazing man and I’m sure he will be terribly missed. Please look to Gods Word for comfort that only God can give. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 calls Him the “God of all Comfort and the Father of tender mercies”. He promises a time soon when all our lost loved ones will be resurrected right here on a paradise earth, where all suffering sickness and death will be things of the forgotten past. Revelation 21:3,4. Please visit jw.org for more comfort from the scriptures. Copy the following link to watch a short and comforting video.
