Keith Edward Gibson March 8, 1963 - November 3, 2021

Keith Edward Gibson

Our beloved Keith Edward Gibson departed this life on

Wednesday, November 3, 2021, in Boise, Idaho. He was born in Modesto, CA on March 8, 1963. His father was a minister, so Keith lived in several states and locations. He graduated from Modesto High School and attended classes at Sacramento State. Keith did not have a BA or PhD; his degree was in life experiences.

Keith held many different positions in varying professions. He held a General Contractor’s License but there are few things he couldn’t do or figure out. He was a hard-worker and loved giving his family and friends a helping hand, whether it involved being a mechanic, electrician, roofer, or whatever was needed. He and his cousin helped pull a man from a burning 18-wheeler. They

received several awards from various branches of government from the state of California for outstanding heroism and going above and beyond the call of duty. Keith laughingly referred to them as his “Whereases.” It wasn’t a big deal to him; that was just Keith. He always went above and beyond what was needed or

expected. Keith retired from Ceres Unified School District as

Assistant Director of Operations. As his brother Gary said, “When Keith retired, CUSD had to hire two employees to replace him.”

Keith married the love of his life, Kimberly Ann, on Friday, July 23, 1982, at the young age of 19, but when you know, you know. They were blessed with 39 years of love and laughter. It is a tribute to their marriage that upon his passing, Kim said she would do it a thousand and thousands of times over.

Keith was an amazing son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend to many, coast to coast. He was preceded in death by his mother, Bulah Rose Gibson. He is survived by his

father, Thomas Floyd Gibson, Jr., and sister Sharon Lemons, both of Three Rivers, Texas, brother Gary Gibson of Waterford, CA, daughter Emily Susanne Nelson of La Grande, Oregon, son Shane Gibson of Clarkdale AZ, and grandchildren Keegan, Kaden, and Kimber Damin, Gus and Justine Nelson, and Elliot Gibson. He was excited about the upcoming December arrival of his next grandson to son Shane and daughter-in-law, Cindy.

Keith never met a stranger. He loved making people happy and was a natural comedian and entertainer. And oh, how he could sing! He enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, and ice cream. He may have been 58 years old when he passed, but he was always a kid at heart. His leaving has left a void that can never be filled.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at Bowman Funeral Parlor, 10254 W. Carlton Bay Dr. in Garden City.  A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am, on Monday, November 15, 2021 at Bowman Funeral Parlor, with burial to follow at Dry Creek Cemetery in Boise.

    I am so sorry for your loss! Keith was so great to work with at CUSD. Always so kind and helpful. I even had the privilege of working a couple of weddings with him. He was fun and he will be truly blessed. Praying for his family.

    I just want to tell Keiths family that I am very sorry and saddened at your loss. It is almost unbelievable, yet I know you will somehow survive and have precious memories of Keith. We all have lost a real and true friend whom we can never forget nor replace.
    I have talked to and visited with Keith and Kim many times and many of those times were when I needed help. Keith and Kim never failed to respond quickly to me and my family’s problems. Keith went to my parents home many times to help them with their plumbing or electrical needs. I will be forever grateful to them.
    Keith and Kim would come see Janice and I whenever we could come to California to visit family.
    Please accept my condolences and I will be praying for Peace and comfort for you all.
    Love and Prayers David Horton.

    Kim,
    Wanted to let you know that my heart aches for you and your family. Keith was such an amazing person and I enjoyed working with him. I don’t know if you know this but he would come in in the morning singing and that would always make my day. My prayers are with you and your family.
