It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Richard Gibson on April 20, 2022 in his 90th year. Beloved husband of 55 years to Tina Gibson (nee. Rauch). Beloved father to Monica, Phillip (Kathy), Brian (Debbie), Darren (Helena), and Maureen. Grandfather to 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Loved by many other extended family and friends. Richard was involved in athletics his whole life, coaching hockey and playing himself, till he was 70. He was also a highly skilled cabinet maker and builder, who taught his sons everything they know about home renovations. These skills, and his advice to “measure twice, cut once.” Will live on in all our lives.
