Yet another one of our Classmates departs.  Seems way too soon.  I was not close to "Gib" at KHS but he must have been a terrific guy.  Many folks have testified to this.  Rest In Peace our friend.

I played baseball with "Gibby".  I rememember him as being quiet and a decent ballplayer--  so young to go!
