Leave a message of condolence

Gary Wayne Gibson went home to be with the Lord on September 10, 2020 at the age of 75.  He was preceded in death by his father Edward L. Gibson, and mother Elfreda (Spaw) Gibson. He is survived by his sister Rebecca (Gibson) Kluba, and brother-in-law Donald J. Kluba, along with many loving family members, friends, and dear caregivers at Mason Christian Village. 


Nobody who met Gary ever forgot him.  He possessed a keen intellect, quick wit, and bold, adventurous spirit.  Despite being wheelchair bound, he never let his physical disability keep him from living life to the fullest.  He loved to travel and explore new places, and during his lifetime visited many different countries.  He enjoyed meeting and conversing with people from all cultures and walks of life.  He was an avid fan of the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals.  His numerous interests included reading, writing short stories, listening to music, eating spicy foods, and collecting hats. 


A private funeral service will be held at this time. A memorial gathering to celebrate Gary’s life will be held at a later date. 


In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Christian Benevolent Association, 411 Western Row Rd., Mason, OH 45040.  

Condolences

I have been taking care of Gary ever since he came to Mason Christian Village. Over the years I really got to know what an amazing, kind and generous man he was. Gary and I laughed, cried and sometimes even yelled at each other. I am privileged to have called him my friend and confidant. I already miss him so very much. Rest in paradise Gary! I hope you found the heaven we always talked about. I love you friend.

My love to you, Becky & Don. I'm so proud to be Gary's cousin. He set an example for all of us about how to live beyond limitations.

Becky and Don, words cannot express how sorry I was to hear of Gary's passing. I send you both my deepest sympathies. Honestly my first reaction was to think how wonderful that with Gary's new Heavenly body he was able to walk into the loving arms of Freda and Ed! Their rejoicing I am sure made all the Angels sing Hallelujah. I will continue to keep you both in my prayers!

Gary words alone can't describe our relationship. You are a not just my cousin, but in fact my CLOSEST cousin, if this offends any of my 30 plus first cousins. Tuff! We were raised as brothers and that is a fact. I have carried you up countless flights of stairs loaded you in my truck and gone to drive in movies baseball games , and even some places our moms wouldn't have approved of . In a few days I am going to help carry you one more time. And knowing that you will never have to be wheeled or carried ever again ....the knowledge that you are physically whole is the only thing that is going to get me through that day! Till we meet again. My brother
