HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - John Gavin sighed as he looked at the photo of his brother, Timothy Gavin, flying down a 120-foot high waterfall in a kayak. "He probably lived more in his 37 years than most people do if they live to be 80," John Gavin said. Family, friends and fellow kayakers plan to gather Saturday night at the Cliffside Inn to honor Timothy Gavin's life with a fund-raiser. The money raised from the $10 tickets will be divided between an education trust fund established for his son, Eric C. Gavin, the American Whitewater Association, and the volunteer fire company in Davis, W.Va.
