Obituary of Jay C. Gibson

Jay C. Gibson



     Jay C. Gibson passed away Friday, July 12, 2019 after a six day family reunion at Mosaic life care.

Jay loved Coca-Cola, lays chips, KC Chiefs, John Wayne, and the 70s. He hated sour cream and spiders. He wore a mullet for longer than he should have and he wore his boots with everything, yes, even shorts. His years of driving a semi-truck had him convinced he had the right of way at any curb, stop sign, red light or left lane on the road. He could get you anywhere on the map from memory alone. He was the dad that cannon balled off the diving board, rode the roller coasters, and laughed at your mistakes. He was the man!

He married and divorced his high school sweetheart Lesa (Greiner) but they remained best friends. He left behind an amazing son, Jay C Jr., two wonderful daughters, April and Angela, and a fantastic son-in-law, Bobby Stringham. He had the best grandsons, Gavin and Maclin Stringham, who he spoiled rotten. He leaves behind two sisters, Karla Schaefer and Penny Barnett but only to join the most amazing reunion in the sky. A reunion with his parents and siblings and so many other family and friends he hasn’t seen in many years.  He had more nieces and nephews than he could count and for that he was truly blessed.

Please join us for a celebration of life on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 3:30 to 5:30 at Sojourn Church on Savannah Ave., Saint Joseph Missouri.  Arrangements under the direction of Simplify Cremations & Funerals.
