Gareth Ohlhoff, 13, of New Market, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 17, 2021, at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Born on July 23, 2008, in Columbia, he was the son of Steven Ernest Ohlhoff and Jill Ellen (England) Ohlhoff.
Gareth was an 8th grade student at Oakdale Middle School. He loved his friends, playing for hours at the Meadowpoint Terrace "official" basketball court followed by hours on the Xbox. Gareth enjoyed playing sports and was a member of the LOUYAA, LRC, and MESA sports communities. Pictures for him were an opportunity for silly faces and laughter. Gareth used humor and laughter to relate to the world and make himself and others comfortable. Dirt was just part of his life, mud slides by the stream, showering in rainstorms, and selective amnesia as to when the last shower may have taken place.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his sister, Brynn Flora Ohlhoff; his grandparents: Brian and Jennifer England, Ernest and Mary Anne Ohlhoff of Frederick and his Uncle Jeff , Aunt Sandi and cousins Luke and Molly Weaver of Columbia, MD.
