Obituary

James B. Gibson, Jr., age 76 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Monday, May 27, 2019, at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital surrounded by family.

He was born on November 18, 1942 in Jefferson City, Mo., the son of James B. Gibson, Sr. and Virginia Mae (Holliday) Gibson. He was married on September 3, 1966 in Owensville, Mo. to Bonnie F. Jost who survives at home.

A lifelong resident of the Jefferson City area, Jim graduated from Jefferson City High School in 1961.

Jim was a union plasterer for almost 40 years, helping build many buildings in the Central Missouri area.

He was a 30 year member of First Assembly of God where he had served as deacon and in other capacities. He enjoyed his yearly mission trips to Springfield, Mo. and other mission trips to Central America, South America and Mexico. Jim cherished his daily devotionals and took every opportunity to talk about his Lord and Savior. He was especially proud of his First Assembly of God family and didn’t hesitate to invite anyone to church with him.

Jim enjoyed spending time with his family, especially rooting for the Mizzou Tigers football team or watching a show in the Branson theatres. He loved the outdoors, always going fishing and camping in his earlier years. Jim was a soft spoken man who was a hard worker, outgoing, and very compassionate. He was always trying to uplift other family, friends, and neighbors.

Survivors include: his loving wife of 52 years, Bonnie F. Gibson; daughter, Sherry R. Thomas (husband Dewaine) of Jefferson City, Mo.; brother, Robert L. Gibson (wife Sharon) of Jefferson City, Mo.; mother-in-law, Frances Jost of Owensville, Mo.; two sisters-in-law, Connie Graves (husband Bill) of Jefferson City, Mo. and Ruth Jost of Owensville, Mo.; brother-in-law, Donald Jost (wife Suzie) of Owensville, Mo.; and nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; father-in-law, Gwynn E. Jost; and brother-in-law, Ronald G. Jost.

Visitation will be held at First Assembly of God from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, May 30, 2019.

A funeral service will be conducted at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, May 30, 2019 at First Assembly of God with the Reverend Lowell Perkins officiating. Graveside services and interment will be held at Hawthorn Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to First Assembly of God to help with their mission trips.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Freeman Mortuary.
