Timothy Lee Gibson

December 16, 1960 — July 23, 2020

Timothy “Tim” Lee Gibson, 59, of Ruckersville, Virginia passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Thursday, July 23, 2020. Tim was born on December 16, 1960, in Charlottesville, VA. He is the son of the late Morton E. Gibson and Ethel M. (Roach) Gibson, and the seventh of eight children. Tim attended William Monroe High School and graduated in 1979. Tim was self-employed and had a knack for roofing and painting.

In addition to his parents he was proceeded in death by his sisters, Diane Knight and Norma Gibson; and his loving friend Stanley “Mac” Shifflett.

He is survived by his partner of 25 years, Ruth K. Ramsey; two daughters, Sara-Elizabeth P. Gibson and Anne-Marie M. Gibson; brothers, Glen (Gina) Gibson and Mike (Cecelia) Gibson; sisters, Kay (Kenneth) Lamm, June (Henry) Horner and Stella Gibson; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Tim was a friend to all, and he knew no stranger. His heart for others showed in his actions, as he had a generous spirit. His door was always open, and he would go out of his way to lend a hand to those in need. He will be remembered for his lighthearted personality and his ability to make everyone laugh. He always had a joke to share or a trick up his sleeve. He enjoyed spending time outdoors fishing, hunting, and driving through the backroads of Greene County. He liked watching football, basketball, classic shows, and movies in his down time. Tim had a love for music and was well known for his dance moves. He always said his greatest accomplishment in life was being a father to his two daughters. His presence will be missed on this earth, but he will be remembered by those who love and know him.

In his memory, give without expecting anything in return.

 “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35, ESV.
