Gary James Gibson
Cincinnati, Ohio

Gary James Gibson was born December 12, 1960, in Cincinnati, Ohio to the late Alberta and Charlie Gibson. God called Gary to rejoice with him on September 21, 2015. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his three brothers, Ernest Gibson, Charles Gibson and Fred Lee Gibson. Gary accepted the Lord and Savior in 1993.

Gary met Margaret Hales and remained her sole companion, and to this union six children were born.

Gary graduated from Robert A. Taft High School. Gary had a love for cooking that was evident through his employment as a Chef for the Maisonette Restaurant, Star of Cincinnati Boat, and the University of Cincinnati until his health began to fail.

Gary never met a stranger and was very sociable. Gary was a loving, protecting and hardworking father and husband. Gary’s favorite football team was the Pittsburgh Steelers, to him “Pitchburgh Steelers.”

He enjoyed Sunday football and reading his newspaper. Gary also cherished the time spent with his granddaughter and buying her, her favorite snacks. Gary was one of the most giving people that you could meet. He was a sharp dresser and took pride in looking nice.

Gary leaves to cherish special memories: his devoted wife and queen, Margaret Hales; six children, Gary Gibson, Candis Gibson, Shonda Gibson, Shenika Hales, Kiesha Gibson, and Erica Hales; two grandchildren, Aryonne and Amir; two brothers, Dwayne Gibson (Dula), Kenneth Gibson (Tracey); sisters-in-law, Gwen Gibson and Willa Gibson; a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

Visitation is from 10:00 am until 11:00 am, on September 26, 2015, at the James Temple Church of God in Christ, 1116 Lincoln Avenue in Walnut Hills (45206). The funeral service will immediately follow the visitation beginning at 11:00 am.

Interment is in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio.
