Floyd "Ray" Gibbs

October 27, 1946 - October 10, 2021

Floyd "Ray" Gibbs, 74, of Marion, passed away Sunday, Oct. 10, 2021, at Mission Hospital of Asheville.

Ray was born Oct. 27, 1946, in McDowell County, to the late Dock and Pearl Ann Reel Gibbs.

He was Chairman of Deacons at Grandview Baptist Church and Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, where he attended faithfully as a member. He worked for Coats American, Inc., where he retired after 35 years of service. In his free time, Ray loved being outdoors, whether it be fishing and camping, riding motorcycles or just enjoying the sunshine; outdoors is where he thrived.

Those left behind to cherish Ray's memory are his beloved wife of 54 years, Vicki Schism Gibbs; three children, Timothy Gibbs (Michelle), Keith Gibbs (Christen) and Christal Gibbs; and her son, Orion Reigh Gibbs of the home; two siblings, Robey Gibbs and Ruth Nanney; his sister-in-law, Gaynelle Blanton (Chuck); and his brother-in-law, Jim Schism (Teresa).

The family will receive friends from 1 to 2 p.m., Friday, Oct. 15, at Calvary Missionary Baptist Church. A funeral service to celebrate Ray's life will follow at 2 p.m. at the church, with the Rev. Jimmy Reese and the Rev. Tony Lunsford officiating. Interment will follow the service at McDowell Memorial Park.
