Hi, 

I just happened upon your blog while surfing the net. My dad was a Jasper; he recently passed away and I thought I might share his obit with you and your regular followers.

Peace,
Mandy Gibson Doar

[JR: I’m sorry to hear of your loss. I depend upon the search engines to find news. And, I know that doesn’t find everything. So much for the infallible internet. I appreciate your taking the time to let us know. I’ll pass it along to the College and he will be included in the annual Remembrance Mass. Peace of Earth is my hope too.]

John was born on May 13, 1936 in Jamaica, Queens, New York. He was a 1954 graduate of St. John’s Prep. He graduated from Manhattan College in 1959, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. While at Manhattan College, he was a member of the AFROTC Band and President of the Glee Club. It was through the Glee Club that he met his future wife, Peggy Price Johnston, a student at nearby Ladycliff College.

Mr. Gibson was a veteran of the U.S. Army and served at Fort Dix, NJ from 1959 to 1961. He and his wife married in July, 1961 and moved to Red Bank NJ, where they lived until the family moved south to Rock Hill, SC in 1976.

He held many jobs over the years, from a farm hand at a dairy farm, a delivery truck driver for a bakery, to business form salesman with Moore Business Forms, to the Site Administrator at Dystar (formerly Mobay). He retired from Dystar in 1996, after 31 years of service. He and Peggy spent the next 17 years traveling across these great United States as well as overseas. They sold their home in Rock Hill and began to travel and live full-time in their motorhome in 2003. Among their adventures: they volunteered at several California State Parks, such as Big Sur and also with the United States Forest Service at Ocala National Forest in Florida. Highlights of these times were their many visits with their children and grandchildren.

He enjoyed spending time with his family on camping trips and tinkering with the engines of his cars, motor homes and lawn mowers. He and the family camped in over 35 states in the USA over the years.

In 2013, he and Peggy sold the motorhome and moved to Virginia Beach, VA to begin their “official” retirement. While in Virginia Beach, they attended the Catholic Church of St. Mark. John’s spare time was spent reading the newspaper, babysitting his grandchildren, working on his computer, and providing ready advice to his children and grandchildren. He will be known best as a good husband, a good father and a good human being.

At Mr. Gibson’s request, his remains have been donated to medical research through the Virginia Anatomical Gift Program.

The family will hold a memorial service at the Catholic Church of St. Mark, 1505 Kempsville Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23464 on December 30, 2017 at 1:00pm.

Obituary
Forked River

On April 12, 2017, as John Lewis sat in his favorite chair for his daily reading of the scriptures, he heard the Lord call his name. He gladly answered the call to join Him in Heaven.

He was born on August 16, 1936 in Brooklyn, NY to a British father, George, and an Irish mother, Josephine.

John received a Bachelor of Science degree from Manhattan College, and a Master of Science degree in Computer Systems Management from the United States Naval Postgraduate School.

John was a proud member of the United States Navy. During his career, he served on the USS Moale (DD-693), the USS Gridley (DLG- 21), and the USS Koelsch (DE-1049) as an officer, and finally the BUPERS Computer Center at the Pentagon. He retired from the US Navy in 1979 in the rank of Commander after serving for 20 years.

Post-military, he had a successful career with the Wall Street firm of Dillon Read, Inc. He retired in 1995 as senior Vice President.

In his retirement, he gave much of his time volunteering at The Church of St. Pius the Tenth, the Lacey School District, and other organizations benefitting the poor. He was a member of St. Timothy Catholic Church in The Villages, FL.

He is survived by his wife, Bridget Quinn Lewis. He is also survived by his five sons: John H. Lewis, Jr. (Margaret) of Paris, France; Bryan (Susan) of Colts Neck, NJ; Gregory Lewis (Alicia) of New York, NY; Kevin Lewis of Montclair, NJ; and Brendan (Jessica) of Maramoneck, NY; and five grandchildren: Isabelle, Jack, Keegan, Cailey, and Madeline.
