Thoughts and prayers to the Gibbs family. John would always take the time to have a chat with me when we'd run into each other, usually when he was shopping and I was working at the store during my high school/college years. John's son John Jr was an old schoolmate of mine as well as his daughter Christine. Great memories with all the Gibbs family. May the precious memories be of comfort during this time and all the days ahead.

My heart is truly broken. John's presence in my life was a gift from God. John's wisdom, care, support nurtured me through dark moments.

His 40-year friendship with my mother was filled with respect and care. He was always an extremely skilled and accomplished a consummate professional in every sense.

He stood by me in his final days, supporting me without hesitation. He actively listened to every word with empathy and made decisions with integrity. I owe him a gift of gratitude. May Christ, the true Shepherd, embrace you as one of his flock.

I will never ever forget how he handled this news and have told countless numbers of people over the years. He made the most gracious response I've ever

My condolences to John’s family. I got to know John over the last couple of years and John was a good man who worked tirelessly for his clients. John was a gentleman and now he can join his beloved wife Dolores. RIP. Rick Lawton
