Obituary for William J. Gibb

William (Bill) John Gibb Jr. of Highlands Ranch, CO passed away on March 28, 2021. Bill was born in Kirkwood Illinois on July 26, 1925.

It was in Illinois where he met the love of his life Marjorie to whom he married in 1948. They enjoyed a wonderful 69 years together prior to Marjorie’s death in 2017. They lived in many parts of the United States due to Bill’s position with International Harvester where he spent the majority of his career. Prior to this, Bill served in the Navy aboard the Intrepid during World War 11. He attended the University of Iowa and was a part of their marching band playing the trumpet. Bill was also a very gifted pianist and organist playing both of these instruments entirely by ear. He remained a loyal Hawkeye fan his entire life particularly concerning Iowa football and basketball.

Bill and Marjorie had four children (Kathy, Beverly, Bill and Nancy), Seven Grandchildren and six Great Grandchildren. Before moving to Highlands Ranch, CO in 2008 to be closer to family Bill and Marjorie spent many happy years playing golf and enjoying retirement in Bella Vista Arkansas where Bill had embarked upon a second career selling real estate.

Bill was a very admirable and gracious man and will be deeply missed by all who knew him and will live in the hearts of his family forever.

Interment Center Grove Cemetery, Kirkwood, Illinois with Military Honors.
