CHARLES "SONNY" GIBBONS Obituary
GIBBONS, Charles "Sonny" 71, of Swampscott, passed away peacefully on August 2, 2018 surrounded by family at the Kaplan House in Danvers. Born in Malden to Charles and Mary Gibbons. Charles worked as a Master Electrician for Helco Electrical for over 20 years. Prior to that he worked for Moulton Electric for over 20 years before its closing. Charles was meticulous with his work and was known to be one of the best! His attention to detail was like no other, sharing his expertise with his family who were more than anxious to learn from him - always! Charles, lovingly nicknamed MacGyver, because he could fix anything, was a dedicated family man who enjoyed spending time with his family, including the four-legged furry kind. He was a devoted dog lover and spent endless hours with his beloved dog, the late Boomer and grand puppy the late Kobe and so many others at Preston Beach in Swampscott. He leaves behind his daughter, Michelle Merson of Lynn and his son, Chad Merson and his wife, Jessica Merson, of Monson, MA, and loving family members, Paul Reed of Quincy and Eleanor Merson of Beverly. He also leaves his sisters, Helen Cronin, Barbara Kerrigan and Patricia Sexton, a predeceased sister, Mary Concilio and many nieces, nephews and grand-puppies, Diesel, Kingston and Luna who loved him dearly. Private services will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name will be welcomed for the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA (978) 745-9888 for the animals he always watched over.
