Peter Gipson Jr. “Pistol Pete” was born August 22nd, 1929 in Green County, Alabama to his parents Amydell Hunter & Peter Gipson Sr (deceased). He accepted Christ at an early age and found a church home at Faith Temple Baptist Church as an adult. Pete was a very hardworking man that made sure to take care of his wife and family. He instilled a work ethic into his children and grandchildren from a very young age. He worked a number of jobs to support his family including General Motors and Construction Work. Everyone knew Pete with the blue Cadillac. In his spare time he was an avid bowler, having participated in a few bowling leagues. He bowled up until his 88th birthday! Peter loved his family very much, especially his grandchildren. They were the highlight of the later years of his life. He spent a lot of time teaching them to drive, cook, and making sure they had everything they needed. Peter was called home to be with the Lord on February 6, 2020. He is survived by his loving wife Pattie Gipson. A beautiful sister Nancy Washington. His daughters Nicole & Nikita Gipson and Jessica Frye. He was blessed with three Granddaughters Eriuna, Jazmine and Vernisha. Three Grandsons; Patrick Gall, De’Vaughnte Williams and James Clardy Jr. Peter was also blessed enough to see the birth of his great grandchildren. Great Grand daughters Jaimaya, Jordyn and Navaiah. Along with great grandson Jai’Lyn, whom he affectionately called Jay Jay....and a host of nieces and nephews he loved. Pete will most certainly be missed. His laugh, his smile and his presence. Rest Peacefully Pete. Until we see you again.
