In Loving Memory Of John Gibbs

John was a loving Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather who will be sorely missed by all his friends and family.

He enjoyed life to the full, dining out with friends and family, and having a "wee dram" every now and then. He liked his country music and watching his team Manchester United of whom he was a lifelong fan.

He also enjoyed going abroad with Sylvia his wife, and other family members and friends.

He was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis and his health started to deteriate, becoming more reliant on oxygen, eventually he succumbed to the disease, but has now found peace and is at rest.

Forever in our memories and in our hearts, he was loved more than words can say XXX
