GIBBS, EDWARD WILLIAM "GIBBER," 56
GIBBS, EDWARD WILLIAM "GIBBER," 56, of Barre Town, surrounded by the love of his family and friends, left this world on October 20, at his home, to be with his dad, Bernarr Sr., in heaven. Born April 17, 1956, he was the son of Bernarr M. Gibbs Sr. and Floy A. (Newton) Virge. He graduated from Spaulding High School in 1974. Gibber worked at the former Dion Motors, RJ Citgo, and most recently at Sanborn Machines until his recent retirement due to ill health. In his free time, he could be found working on friends or family members' vehicles or tinkering on something. He enjoyed "tinkering" and "figuring out" mechanical problems and coming up with a plan to solve the issue, even if only temporarily, as well as watching NASCAR races, hunting and spending time with and helping out family and friends. Gibber will be sadly missed by his mother, Floy of Barre Town; his sisters, Sharon Jacobs of Barre, Crystal Breer of Orange, Cecile Martin and husband Tiny, who cared for him until his death, and Carol Stange of Maine. He will also be missed by his brothers, Bernarr Jr. and wife Donna of Plainfield, Jeff Virge and wife Kathy of Barre, and Paris M. "Skip" and wife Phyllis of Hamden, Conn. His nieces and nephews will miss the words of wisdom that were frequently offered by "Uncle Gibber." He is also survived by several great-nieces and -nephews who are also saddened by the loss. He was predeceased by his dad and a nephew, Aaron Breer.
