Gerald D. "Gib" Gibson, age 93, went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. He was a longtime resident of Hudson and was most recently residing at The Gables of Hudson. Gib was the loving husband of his late wife Lois (nee Joslyn) for 73 wonderful years; dear father of David G. Gibson (Laura L.), Rev. C. Michael Gibson (Janet M.), Lucinda L. Winkler, Robert B. Gibson (Mary Ann Schler), Claudia L. Barnes (Kenneth P.), and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas A. Gibson; beloved grandfather of 21; great-grandfather of 25 and great-great-grandfather of 4. Gib was predeceased by his loving wife Lois; parents, Leland and Cecil Gibson; his beloved step-mother, Jesse May Gibson; son, David G.; his sisters, Doris Johnson and Joyce Swetman; and a great-grandson. Gib served his country during WWII in the United States Army. It was in the service that he met the love of his life, Lois. He used the GI Bill to put himself through Kent State University and Akron School of Law. Gib owned and operated Barrick-Gibson Attorneys at Law and Red Coach Real Estate, both in Hudson. He had many interests including fishing, the raising and racing of standard bred horses, and land development. He was a private pilot and a Coast Guard Auxiliary Marine Instructor. In his near forty year retirement he enjoyed his lifelong passion for fishing and he earned many awards for his work with genealogy. Gib had a hard beginning to his life and his children are all proud of the self made man that he became, he provided well for his wife and family.

He was a wonderful uncle. I will never forget our trips to Indiana, Ohio when you lived in the big white house and especially the two times I got to go to Canada. Our family was always greeted with open arms. My mom loved him as much as any sister could love a brother, they were so close. I will miss him. Our prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your Father. He was known to us as "Gib". I first met him at Brecksville Community Center where he would walk the track. We formed a friendship over common interests and life situations. My dad is a WWII veteran. My mom has Macular, and Gib talked about Lois endlessly. He set me up with the talking books from the library for my mom. He came to my office after his work out, we would chat about just about everything. He was an absolute delight! As well as your Mother. I know you will miss them both very much. A great loss. - Jinny Farr
