Earl C. Gibson, 93, of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, passed peacefully on Sunday, August 29, 2021, at Pottstown Hospital with his son Anthony, vigilantly by his side. The son of the late Boyd Jackson and Mary Still Gibson of Williamsport, PA, is survived by his four sons, Boyd E. Gibson, Anthony B. Gibson, Ronald K. Gibson, and Stephen L. Gibson – his wife Edith Gibson preceded him in death. Earl was an entrepreneur who owned and operated a respected barbershop and shoe repair business in Pottstown. He also worked in construction. Earl passed on his passion for music and humor to each of his sons, and whenever they gathered together, laughter, stories of remembrance, live music and singing were a source of joy, as Earl would lead the way while singing and strumming his guitar with the ensemble. Earl was an active member of several Apostolic churches throughout his lifetime where he was a faithful student at Bible study and the church worship services. There will be a private family graveside service at the Mt. Zion Cemetery September 17, 2021. There will also be a 7:30 p.m. virtual memorial celebration of life.
