Obituary for Roy Bennett Gibson, Jr.

La Grange-Roy Bennett Gibson Jr., 72, of La Grange, passed away on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Roy was born May 10 1945 in Augusta, Kentucky to the late Roy Bennett Gibson and Dorothy Mae Hay Gibson. Roy proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. He worked as a radar technician and retired following twenty years of service with the rank of Master Sergeant.

A natural born craftsman, Roy was one who liked working with his hands. He enjoyed carpentry and woodworking. Roy took great pride in the design process of his projects and everything he built showed a master’s touch.

Politics were of great interest to Roy. Most days were spent near the television or radio listening to latest political commentary. He loved listening to WGBR radio for the latest trivia contest or his favorite conservative personality, Rush Limbaugh.

Roy’s family has many fond memories of his talent in the kitchen. His roast beef, mashed potatoes along with his pineapple or apple pie always brought a smile to his family. Time spent around the table with family and friends brought Roy many happy moments.

Roy is survived by his best friend and wife of fifty one years, Kay Taylor Gibson; sister, Ramona Gibson; brother, Robert Gibson; mother-in-law, Edna Thornsbury; two brothers-in-law, Chuck and Mike Taylor; adopted grandson, Matthew Heath; along with a number of nieces and nephews.
