Gregory A. Gavins, Sr., departed this life on July 31, 2020, in Houston, TX. Greg was born on January 7, 1953, to Henry and Doris Gavins. Greg was a son of League City, St. Aug, and the City of New Orleans. He was a musician and athlete at St. Augustine High School and Southern University. He was a "Wiz" at math and went on to become a maritime engineer working at Halter Marine in New Orleans. Greg eventually caught the entrepreneurial bug, and with his best friend, they founded Blue Streak Transportation. For over a decade, "7140 and 7150" streaked students and Church groups of New Orleans up, down, and throughout the Southern U.S. Greg eventually began teaching math and coaching. He was loved by his students, although some of them would probably disagree, whenever he picked up an eraser. He coached and taught at St. Raphael, Redeemer, Good Hope, and was involved in many AAU programs. Still having transportation in his heart and students on his mind, he took leadership positions with multiple student transportation services in Zachary, LA, Charlotte, NC, and League City, TX. He attended Grace Community Church in Houston, TX and Bethany Church in Baker, LA where he served in the Security Ministry. Greg leaves this world knowing he will forever be loved by his wife of five years, Natasha Gavins; son Gregory II (Greer), daughters Kaci (Baker), Kaayiesha, Kristin, Chelsee, Abby, Brooklyn; grandchildren Malakai, Mckenzie, Gregory III, and Grant. Greg also leaves behind a host of family in Detroit, MI, Hammond, LA, and Seattle, WA. He was preceded in death by his mother, Dr. Doris Levy Gavins. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the graveside service at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 4000 Norman Mayer Ave, New Orleans, LA 70122, on Monday, August 10, 2020 at 12 noon, Pastor Donald Poole, officiating. "Big Blue" you will be missed and never forgotten
