  1. I unfortunately never had the blessing to have met Mr. Gibson, but I know Crystal and Mrs. Gibson (Geri), and to have two of the most godly people I know as a wife and daughter is an infinite testament to him.

    I hope that the Holy Spirit comforts all of his friends and family.

    May God bless you all.

    I had the pleasure of working with Glen (and Geri) for many years when he hauled our Precast at Con-Force Structures. He was an amazing man who was loved by all!! He is and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. His dedication to his work and to his family was evident in everything he did. Our thoughts, love and prayers to Geri, Crystal and all his family.

    May God bless you all.
