Gibson Edwin Gibson, Jr., age 54, entered Heaven's gates with thanksgiving, and entered His courts with praise, blessing His name May 28, 2017 at his residence surrounded by his loving family.

He loved his kids dearly and was looking forward to his first granddaughter in June. He was a loyal friend. He loved people, made everyone feel special and loved to laugh. Eddie lived life to the fullest. He was always doing and giving to others. He loved to go out with friends. He relaxed by going fishing and taught his kids early to enjoy it, and do it "right". Eddie held a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies from Nation-2-Nation Christian University. He attended Redeemer's on Courtright Church as a teenager. He was an extremely gifted musician and singer. He joined the worship team 25 years ago. He became a passionate worship leader.

He went to Cuba and Africa and supported his wife and all three kids on trips to Africa, Mexico and Hungary.
