Gary “Gip” Gibson, 62, of Hustonville, KY passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, May 14, 2023. Born on August 26, 1960 in Lancaster, KY to the late Noah and Vatus Emerson Gibson. Gip was a carpenter for most of his life. He loved dogs and enjoyed riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He might be the only person to ever blow up his Harley sitting in the garage in the winter. His favorite saying was, “Leave me alone!”. If you ever passed Toombs Hollow and heard a skill saw at 3 a.m., it was Gip. He attended McKinney Baptist Church.
Survivors include his wife, Odena Brown Gibson; one son, Jason Gibson of Baltimore, MD; one daughter, Jowanna Clarkson of Moreland, KY; two grandsons; six siblings, Faye Roy of Cincinnati, OH, Sue Bailey (Ken) of Georgetown, KY, Dallin Gibson (Phyllis) of Georgetown, KY, Phyllis Wallen (Bobby) of Indiana, Russell Gibson (Kathy) of Hustonville, KY and Ricky Gibson (Jennifer) of Glasgow, KY; and several nieces and nephews of his and Odena’s family.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Noah and Vatus Gibson; one son, Justin Gibson; one sister, Dorothy Sprinkles; one brother, Larry Gibson; one sister-in-law, Cathy Gibson and two brother-in-laws, Charlie Roy and Arnold Sprinkles.
