Wilson Gibbons

March 8, 1926 — May 16, 2018

Wilson "Bill" Arthur Gibbons went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. His wife of 72 years and his two daughters held his hands as he passed away. He was 92 years old.

Bill was born on March 8, 1926 to Arthur and Nelda (Olmstead) Gibbons. Bill married Betty Louise Lounsbury on September 15, 1946 in Pasadena, California.

Throughout his life, Bill was most proud of his service in the Army Air Corps during WWII. He was also proud of earning the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America and that his two Grandsons followed in his footsteps by also becoming Eagle Scouts.

Bill was an avid outdoorsman - he enjoyed snow skiing, water skiing, hunting and fishing. Bill worked in the space industry for Rocketdyne, and was a Project Manager for the petroleum company Fluor for 25 years. He and Betty retired to Pagosa Springs more than 20 years ago.

Bill is survived by his wife, Betty; Daughters: Nancy (Joe) Blodgett and Jill (Frank) Cason; Grandchildren: Kevin (Stephanie) Blodgett, William (Juli) Hegeman, Karianne (Ben) Apple and 7 great-grandchildren.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Reese. A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
