Jeffrey Arthur Gibbs


It is with great sadness that I announce the sudden passing of my soul mate, best friend and husband of 16 years, Jef Gibbs, on August 11, 2014.
Jef will be greatly missed by his wife, Louise White-Gibbs and children- Dru (Lisa), JD, Krystal, Renee and Randall, 6 grandchildren- Rain, Karma, Jaden, Korbyn, Johnson and Maggie. His mother, Day, and sisters Claudia (Robert) and Noreen (Nick). Jef was predeceased by his father, Les, in 2004.
Jef had many, many friends including his fellow band members in Hardwired and Tragically Hip Replacements, and his friends from The Edmonton Sun, where he worked for 20 years.
Jef donated countless of hours volunteering for the Beaumont community, where he lived for the past 17 years. He was the current President of the Lion’s Club, board member of the new Community Hall Building Committee and Fundraising Chairman for the Hall. Jef was also on the Beaumont Chamber of Commerce board and volunteered for many local Town events alongside his wife, Louise.
Most of all, Jef will be remembered for his love of music, his unique sense of humor and passion for his family. We will miss you, Jef!
Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, August 21st at 11 a.m. St. Vital Church 4905-50 Street, Beaumont. Fellowship to follow at the Beaumont Community Center 5204-50th Ave.
