We ALL miss Bobby a lot. He was a one-of-a-kind person with a great disposition. He had a great work ethic & loved his family so much.
Everybody here will always remember one of his phrases. "It's an Arkansas thing" :)
Condolences from the GMW family.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the Gibbs family, as they face this difficult time. Robert (Bobby) Gibbs was a former classmate of mine and always so funny and kind. I met his daughter Lauren (MotherT) later in life and she became very close to my family. As in all friendships life gets in the way at times but the love will always be there. Lauren if I haven’t told you lately I love you and my heart breaks for you. I know you were such a daddy’s girl.

Beverly and Family, I’m so sorry to learn of your loss. I always enjoyed being a neighbor of yours and Bobby’s when living across the street from you on Rosewood.
He was a very friendly, likable guy with a wonderful smile and disposition and great work ethics. I pray for God to sustain you with His peace and comfort during this time and in the days to come.
