On Friday September 23 in Ruedi, CO, Gibby, 62, cashed in his one way ticket to Heaven for his eternal vacation. He was married to his “sweet heart” BJ for 38 years. He was her best friend and the love of her life. Gibby was a caring and very involved father of his two children Zack and Bo Jaymes. He was a lover of adventures and all things outdoors. Gibby was passionate about his family, work, volunteering and his beloved Broncos. He will forever be known as a generous giver in life and now in death and chose to be an organ donor. He is survived by his amazing wife BJ, children Zack and wife Christine, Bo Jaymes, grandchildren Kyleigh and Cole, mother Louise, and siblings Saul Forster and Karen Rigg. In lieu of flowers, the family has set up a memorial fund to assist with unexpected emergency expenses.
