Not sure what to say?

While Jack may have graduated DLS in 1953 - Jack never left De La Salle. He embodied loyalty, dedication and support for his Alma Mater. I learned DLS history from Jack every time we met.

May the arms of God that welcomed Jack into heaven be the same that hold his family in comfort at this time.

Babbsie,
Sorry to hear of your loss. I'm sure Jack will be missed by many. It was a pleasure to know him.

Babbsie, we got to know Jack at the Carrollton Playground and then our paths continued to cross. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.

From all of the remaining Class '53.....Jack will always..."Lead On"

Jack was a tireless worker and supporter of DeLaSalle. It was a pleasure to have worked with Jack on any DLS project. Rest In Peace, thanks for the memories.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. Sorry for Ms Babs and all the family. A great guy all the way around.

Babs,Susan,Brian and Stephen,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. There is a special place in my heart for Jack. As a young boy at Carrollton Boosters I was on the mound pitching and struggling. Jack did not have a child on the team, but happened to be walking by and saw me struggling. He stayed the rest of the game and through the fence continued to encourage me.I will never forget that and I cherish that memory.

Dear Mrs. Gibbons, Brian, Susan and Stephen,

Greg and I were so sorry to hear of Mr. Gibbons passing. I have wonderful memories from my childhood of time that my parents, Pit and Ed, spent with Babsie and Jack. What a great and funny man he was! I know you will all miss him terribly and am sending love and prayers to you all.

Love,

Caroline Murphy Christman
