Robert Gibson

In Loving Memory

Gibson, Robert Edward

October 27, 1933 - February 13, 2024


Robert Edward Gibson pulled out 2-13-2024.

First born child of Walter Francis Gibson and Mary Irene Owens. The first grandson to Samuel (Stix) and Bertha Gibson and William and Eva Owens.

Bob grew up in the depression, raised by his grandparents on each side. Alternating between St. Louis and Jefferson City, MO. Finally, he landed in Webster Groves in 1948 and lived there for nearly fifty years. He graduated from WGHS in 1952. He went to Coca Cola as a route salesperson where he learned the strength of solidarity and the power in collective bargaining. He, along with a small group of coworkers organized the plant. He was a teamster for the rest of his life. After a short stint in the service, he returned home.

He soon met Rose Ann Seper and they were married in 1959. They had four children. Steven (Gina), Katherine, Joseph (Amy) and David (Karen). He was “couldn’t ask for a better brother” to the late Helen Ludwig (the late Chris), Carol Parten (the late Ralph), and Jo Patty (Rick Baumhoegger), brother-in-law to Steve (the late Mary Beth) Seper, the late Helen (the late Fred) Jauernig, and Kathy (the late Layton) Jackson; loving and proud grandfather to Niki, Brittany, Daniel, Peter, Sydney, Ben, Kate, JD, Jacob, Madeline and Ashley;  great grandfather to Kaine and Maverick; nephew of Elnora Puckett: dear uncle, cousin and friend to many

He was a top shelf rabbit and varmint hunter and an avid motorcyclist. He enjoyed woodworking and golf in his retirement years. He was never a Walmart shopper or one to “suffer any foolishness”. You always knew where you stood with him. Protective of family and a faithful provider.

You will be missed.

Services: Visitation at Kutis Affton Chapel 10151 Gravois Saturday February 24, 10:00 AM-12 Noon.  Inurnemnt Monday February 26 10:00 AM at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.

  1. My favorite memory of Bob is the float trip he and I took. We had a wonderful afternoon enjoying the outdoors. He once said that he would always remember me playing Patsy Cline and caterwauling along with Hank Williams on my portable radio. I feel blessed that he was my father in law for the past 25 years.

  2. He was the best brother anyone could ever hope for, always there for me, from well drilling, flood shelter, driving me to bury my son Will miss you my dear brother rest in peace
