Anthony “Tony” Gibson, 59, of Liberty, Mo., was called to his heavenly home on March 12, 2021. Tony passed away from complications of the COVID virus.
Tony was born in Portland, Ind. He graduated from Wathena High School. In 1999 he married his wife, Michelle Gibson. In 2001 he was hired at North West Regional Youth Center and was still working there when he became sick. He would have been there 20 years in May and would have been able to retire in June this year.
Tony served in the National Guard for 15 years. He enjoyed watching the Royals and Chiefs games. He enjoyed being outside and watching nature. He also loved listening to Elvis Presley and country music, especially in his car with the windows down and cranked as loud as possible so everyone could hear it. He loved watching old movies about history, adventures, comedy, police and especially wrestling.
He was strong, loving and a caring man with a big heart for his friends and family. He would help anyone he could. His favorite holiday was Christmas; he loved to decorate and go all out. He was a hard worker and provided for his family. When you were his friend he treated you like family. We all have many memories to treasure and cherish. Tony, we all love you always and forever! You will never be forgotten. He loved his family and friends very much.
He is survived by his wife, Michelle Gibson, his daughters, Sage and Savanna Gibson, and 1-year-old granddaughter, Remy, all of Excelsior Springs, Mo.; his parents, Joesph and Wilma Larmore of Kansas City, Mo.; mother-in-law, Connie Sanford of Kansas City, Mo.; his sister, Sherry (Terri ) Eaton and sons, Joshua Eaton of Muncie, Ind., and Branden Coy of Kansas City, Mo.
