He was born August 27, 1953 in Youngstown, Ohio. He was the son of Bob and Cynthia Gibson.

Gibby was an outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing.
He will be remembered as a kind and caring person who was always there to help someone in need. He faced his illness in the same manner he faced life - with a strong determination to overcome the challenge and an incredible faith in God.
