It was a pleasure knowing Bob. He showed everyone how to fight a good fight. During the past few years it has been a struggle for him. Bob and I were great friends. I appreciate his service to our country, as well as to the Moose.
Robert (Bob) Gibbons, 86, passed away November 1, 2018 in Evansville, IN. Bob retired from Alcoa after 27 years of faithful service. He loved to golf, was an avid gardener, and among all he loved his family with all his heart.
