  1. So sad to find out about Gibby’s passing. My father Sketch Pasinski and Gibby were such good friends. Years ago when my father was in the hospital, Gibby came every day to see him, and I remember him saying a final goodbye to my father before he died with tears on his cheeks. Gibby was a special man and a good friend to our family, he brought us such comfort during those difficult days. I am sorry for the loss of your father/grandfather – I’m sure you will greatly miss him in the days ahead. My condolences, Leslie

  2. Gibby is back together with Bernice again. They were the first ones to walk across the street to welcome me to the neighborhood over thirty years ago and they brought me some homemade jam. Gibby and Bernice were the neighborhood grandparents to so many children and they loved to do it. So many memories of my daughter and Gibby delivering food to the Food Bank, stopping in at the bakery on the way home and visiting on their back deck. At Bernice’s 65th birthday party, Gibby said he was going to trade her in for two thirty year old women, Bernice just laughed at him and told him he would not know what to do with them. Rest in Peace my friend.

  3. Sending condolances to Christine, Ed and the rest of the family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Gibby will be missed.
