George G. Gibeau Sr. Obituary

George G. Gibeau Sr., born August 19, 1932, to Edward J. & Cecilia (Schueren) Gibeau in Romeo, Mich., went home to be with the Lord, after a long illness, on April 7, 2015.

He is survived by his wife of almost 59 years June E. (Wolpert) Gibeau; three sons, George Jr. Gibeau (wife: Iona Popescu) of Missouri, John W. Gibeau of Fla., and Tom M. Gibeau (wife: Kim) of Ohio; daughter, Cathy C. (Gibeau) Schreck (husband: Tom) of New Mexico; sister, Bernice (Gibeau) Lenzion; seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

He was proceeded in death by his father Edward, mother Cecilia, brother Edward Jr. and loving daughter Debbie L. (Gibeau) Moore.

George grew up an avid hunter in Michigan and enjoyed his father's trade, carpentry. He served in the Army from 1952-1955, working as a cryptographer during the Korean War. George married in June of 1956 and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he raised his family. At that same time, he worked on the police force until 1981 when he retired.
His favorite past-time was auctioneering, which he did for 46 years in five different states. In the late 70s he and June lived part-time in Florida until they moved there permanently in 1988.
Many days were spent fishing in the boat on Lake Griffin for crappie that June would fry up, but never eat. They moved to Alamogordo in 2008 to be near their daughter, Cathy and her family. George spent many hours volunteering at the local senior center, Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center Auxiliary, Immaculate Conception Church and Amber Skies Retirement Community.
He will be deeply missed by many.

There will be a celebration of George's life (no mass) on April 24, 2015, at 6 p.m., located at Immaculate Conception Church, 705 Delaware St., Alamogordo. There will be refreshments and fellowship following the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of George to St. Rita's School for the Deaf, 1720 Glendale Milford Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45215 or to Hospice, 1859 Indian Wells, Alamogordo, NM 88310.
