Alan Gibbons

Date of Death: August 22, 2021

Tribute

1928-2021

It is with much sadness that we have to say goodbye to Alan Gibbons who passed away on Sunday August 22nd, 2021.

He will be dearly missed by his children Patricia, Martin and Andrew, his granddaughters Danielle and Brianna, his brother Maurice, Alec and Rodney, his sister Elaine, his son & daughters in-law Phil, Judith, Carrie and Jerry and his great grandsons Asher and Cohen.

His dear wife Margaret passed away in March 2015.

Alan was born in Sheffield England and emigrated to Canada in 1953. He settled  in Montreal and raised his family while working at Imperial Tobacco.

On retirement in 1985, he and Margaret eventually moved to Canmore, Alberta  where they resided until their final move to Nakusp in 2006.

Alan’s lifetime passions, apart from his family, were coaching sports, golfing, swimming, playing squash and of course singing.

He touched many peoples lives, as he lived his life simply…  loving God, his neighbours and friends.

He was singing songs and hymns right to the end.

Many thanks for the wonderful, compassionate care he received from all the staff at Halcyon House.

A memorial service will take place on his birthday in October..details to be announced.

“ But God will redeem my soul from the grave; he will surely take me to himself.”   Psalm 49:15

My sincere condolences to the friends and family to my coach from Pierrefonds, what a great man who taught me so much about the game of soccer.
