Obituary for Jeffery B Gibson

Jeffrey Boyette Gibson, 64, of Americus died Thursday, August 30, 2018. Born May 19, 1954 to Herman “Fuzz” Gibson and the late Dixie Hodge Gibson, he proudly served in the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Marine Corp. He worked as a firefighter with the Georgia Forestry Commission and many times dressed as Smokey Bear and Santa Clause. An avid fisherman and hunter, he especially loved bird hunting and running deer with dogs; so much that his nickname was “Bird Dog.” He never met a stranger, always had a smile on his face, and loved to laugh and tell jokes. Most notably, he was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.

Graveside services will be held at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at Andersonville National Cemetery with Rev. Raymond Smith officiating. The family will receive friends from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday, September 3, 2018 at Greg Hancock Funeral Chapel in Americus.

Survivors include his wife, Sherrie Gibson of Americus; father, Fuzz Gibson of Buena Vista; three daughters: Mandy Gibson Hart of Buena Vista, Nichole Wisham of Ellaville, and Hannah Thomas of Americus; son, Brandon Gibson of Buena Vista; two sisters: Dale Weber of Tazewell, and Dana Crowden of Senoia; and two brothers: Mike Gibson of Utah, and Shorty Gibson of Madison. Also surviving are six grandchildren: Jordin Gibson, Bentley Gibson, Zachary Baker, Trenton Wisham, Levi Wisham, and Kirby Clark.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to: The John B. Amos Cancer Center, c/o Piedmont Healthcare, PO Box 105452, Atlanta, GA 30348-5452.
