Gibson, Frank Edsel*  
Frank Edsel Gibson Rockledge, FL In loving memory of Frank Edsel Gibson who sadly passed away on September 28, 2014 in Rockledge, FL. Frank was born in Paterson, NJ on February 12, 1939 and was the only child of Frank and Dorothy Gibson (deceased). Frank graduated from Central High School in Paterson, NJ, Class of 1956, where he made many friendships which he maintained throughout his life. He graduated William Paterson University with a B.A. degree and so began his teaching career. Frank then earned his MBA from Georgian Court University in Lakewood, NJ. Frank taught at Sylvia Rosenauer Elementary School in Jackson Township, NJ for most of his teaching career. Teacher of the Year was one of his many awards. His favorite grades were 4th and 5th. He was loved by his students for his wit, humor and gift for poetry which he not only taught to his students but held workshops for his colleagues, as well. His legendary DooWop Lip Sync show highlighting the 1950's was performed by students and faculty each year and was widely anticipated and enjoyed by all for many years. Frank also enjoyed playing softball in several leagues including the VFW, his favorite. He was also an accomplished bowler and received a prestigious ring for bowling a perfect 300 game. Frank retired from teaching in 2001 and moved to Avon by the Sea in FL. Although retired, he would occasionally substitute in one of the Brevard County schools. In retirement, Frank continued bowling, fishing, and handicapping the horse races which he really enjoyed, as well as watching and collecting old movies, especially John Waynes'. Known for his love of animals, he was a contributor to several animal organizations, though his favorite was the 'SPCA'. He had many pets through the years and, sadly 'Kady' his beloved Walker Hound will miss him. Frank leaves behind his beloved wife and companion of 30 years, Carolyn, and the children he adored, Laurie, Judi (Dan), Scott (Staci), Glenn (Tracy); and Carolyn's children, Andrew, Duane, Lori and Lisa, as well as 12 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Anyone wishing to honor Frank's memory can make a donation to Central Brevard Humane Society, 1020 Cox Rd, Cocoa, FL 32926 (321) 636-3343 or Riverside Presbyterian Church, 3400 N.

Gott, Gordon A.*  
Gordon A. Gott Palm Bay, FL Gordon A. Gott, 91, of Palm Bay, passed away Friday, December 12, 2014. Gott was a warm-hearted man and an expert mechanic. He could make anyone laugh and he loved life until the last day, when he passed away peacefully at home. Born June 22, 1923 in Algonac, MI to Gordon and Ethel Gott. His mother died at a young age from a brain aneurysm. He moved to Miami, FL, where he graduated from Miami Senior High School. Gott served in the 276th Ordnance Company of the U.S. Army, helping to invade Normandy, Belgium, and the Rhineland of Germany. From a young age Gott knew how to fix equipment by working at his father's restaurant and taxi businesses. The Army taught him even more. "We were just young and foolish. We didn't have any fear until the bombs started falling nearby," Gott remembered. Being enlisted in the Army meant always feeling "wet, cold, and scared," but he enjoyed the work and being with his friends in the 276th. They mustered out in Fort Knox, KY at the end of the war. In 1952 Gordon met the love of his life, Katharine Lorraine Quigley. Although a New England girl, she worked at the time as a nanny in Miami. They married soon after their introduction, and were together for 56 years until her passing in 2008.  "(Katharine) was always up to date on her fashion, always so clean; everything was just so with her," Gott said. "If I ever needed anything she was right there." They raised and are survived by their sons, Gordon C. Gott, of Palm Bay, Brian and Liz Gott, of Palm Bay, and daughter, Kimberly and Christopher Norton, of Malabar. Gott believed in hard work and family. For 30 years, he owned/operated a Maytag repair business in the Miami area, and then relocated to Palm Bay. In order to be involved in the lives of his grandchildren he worked as a school crossing guard and head custodian at Lockmar Elementary in Palm Bay. Gott was outgoing, a great storyteller, and always quick with a joke, or a hug when necessary. He loved animals and cared for two abandoned dogs during his later years. Warm, caring and fatherly, he was a "papa" figure to many in the community. He was a proud grandfather to Jeremy Cook, Haley and Amanda Gott of New Market, AL, Christopher Gott, of Hendry County, GA, Carrie Gott Winchell, of Palm Bay, Chris Gott, of Orlando, Kaitlin Norton, of Melbourne Beach, Brian Norton and Kevin Norton of Arlington, VA. In addition, he leaves behind eight great-grandchildren. Gordon A. Gott was a devout Catholic and proud member of Our Lady of Grace, 300 Malabar Rd, SE, Palm Bay. A memorial Mass will be held at the church on December 19th at 1pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Central Brevard Humane Society. Arrangements entrusted to Ammen Family Cremation and Funeral Care, Palm Bay, 724-2224. Anyone wishing to send the family a message, video or share a story can do so at www.afcfcare.com .
