Gary Michael "Mike" Gibson

Gary Michael "Mike" Gibson, 51, died on Sunday, May 12, 2002, at home, in Missouri City, surrounded by the love of his wife and friends, after a brief but valiant battle with cancer. He made his final pass with the win light coming on one more time.

He was born in Beaumont, raised in Silsbee and attended Lamar University in Beaumont. Moving to Missouri City in 1980, he was Operations Manager for Coors Central and South until 1983. He was co-owner of Barco Transportation from 1983 to 1987 and owner of The Bartran Corporation from 1987 to 1997. Currently, he was on contract with Trimac Transportation.

Mike is survived by his wife of 24 years, Barbara. She was the center of his universe. Words can never describe the love he had for her.

He was predeceased by his parents, Lorena and Earl "Buck" Gibson, at an early age but lovingly nurtured by his aunt and uncle, Jeanette and Eddie Van Winkle of Silsbee. They survive him as does his aunt Evalina Raggio, cousins Eddie Van and Keith Van Winkle, all of Silsbee, and cousins Nora Welch and Nancy Van Winkle of Beaumont.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Mike Gibson will be held Saturday, May 25, 2002 at 10:00 a.m. at Southminster Presbyterian Church, 2310 Brightwater Drive, Missouri City, 77459, with Reverend Steven Thorney officiating. The comfort, support and love of Rev. Thorney was deeply appreciated by Mike and Barbara.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the church for a future memorial garden.
