Obituary for Ronald Gibb

It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of Ron at the age of 84 following complications from Covid. Beloved husband of Pam for 30 years. Former spouse of Bonnie (nee Trimble). Cherished brother of Barb Sunderland (Neil), Carl, and Donna Crawford (Wayne). Predeceased by brother Doug (Fran). Devoted father of David (Colleen), Stephen (Jacquie), Debbie D’Aloisio (Joe), Lindsay Drozdz (Rob), and Craig Miller. Sadly, missed by grandchildren Joel, Emily, Ellen, Celine, Evan, Phoebe, Keely, Abbey, Ashton, Logan, and Finley, and great grandchildren Ethan and Hudson. Ron was a popular teacher/principal in Essex County for thirty-five years. He had an uncanny ability to remember past students who approached him everywhere he went. A sports fanatic, he was always involved in coaching baseball, basketball, volleyball and track. As a retiree, he loved playing slo-pitch and volleyball, singing with the Sun Parlor Barbershop Society and the Guys Who Like To Sing, catching the news with his morning coffee buddies, and following grandkids’ sports and activities, as well as spending time with family. Ron was always actively recruiting others to join in the fun, and many retirees did. At home he loved gardening, woodworking, feeding the birds, and spending time with his beloved cats and dogs. He often said how lucky he was. Many thanks to the staff at Windsor Regional Hospital, especially special Nurse Emily, for the wonderful care in such difficult circumstances. Cremation has taken place. Appointments and masks are required by booking online at Family and friends are invited to gather at the Kennedy Funeral Home Ltd. (519-776-7378) 128 Talbot St. North, Essex on Thursday from 3-7 p.m. for a time to celebrate Ron’s life. Donations may be made to the Windsor/Essex Humane Society.
