Obituary of Guy Anthony Gibson


Guy Anthony Gibson

Of Accoville, WV

   On July 27, 2018, Guy Anthony Gibson departed this life to go to his heavenly home.

   He was born on May 15, 1976 in Logan County, a son of Patricia Bryant Gibson of Accoville and the late Orville Lee Gibson, Jr.

   Guy loved his family, friends, and his dog Sarge very much.  He was a very gifted man in many respects such as woodworking, mining supplies, cooking and anything else that took talent.  His favorite activities were having cookouts going fishing, and watching his favorite team the Indianapolis Colts on television.  Guy was very proud of so many things that he achieved in his life.

   In addition to his mother, those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 21 years, Malinda Dawn Elam Gibson; his daughter, Ashton Dawn Hall and her husband, Corey, of Greenville; his son, Jacob Anthony Gibson; his sister, Anita Marie Nickell and her husband, Buddy of Logan;  his maternal grandparents, Guy (after whom he was named) and Anita Bryant of Mineral City; his special uncles and aunts, James and Tammy Bryant, Tony and Sherry Bryant, Debbie and Chet Barnett, Vanessa Harless, Lisa Ellis, Kim Ellis, and Gloria Gilco; his mother-in-law, Joyce Morgan; his sister-in-law, Delana Spence and her husband, Kenny; his brother-in-law, Kevin Lee Elam; sister-in-law, Lori Thomas; his nieces and nephews, Jeremiah Jackson, Taylor and Trey Spence, Autumn Faine and her husband, Daniel, Annika and Aracoma Elam, Brianna, Johnanna, Eddie, and Jonathan Thomas, Jessika Maynard and her husband, Robert, and their son, Little Robert; along with many cousins and a host of other relatives and friends.
