BAR HARBOR – Gabriel Anders Kandutsch passed away unexpectedly in his sleep, Sunday, Dec. 4 at his home in Bar Harbor. He is survived by his mother, Lauri Braley-Kandutsch of Ellsworth, his father, Mark Kandutsch of Bar Harbor, brothers Nathaniel Braley of Nashua, N.H., and Nicholas Braley of Bar Harbor, grandparents Andrew and Nancy Kandutsch, Judith Nevells, Roy Lietz, Peter Nevells and many cousins.
Gabriel was a graduate of MDI High School and would, had he lived, have been beginning, in a couple of weeks, his studies at LaSalle College in Montreal. Gabriel touched the lives of hundreds of people during his all-too-brief time among us, and is remembered as a creative, caring young man with a quirky sense of humor and a big generous heart.
A scholarship in Gabe’s memory will be developed for a MDI High School graduate studying Design. Those interested in contributing may contact Mark Kandutsch through Cadillac Family Practice in Bar Harbor.
