Andrew Scott Gibbs was born on December 2, 1990 in New London, CT. and passed away on May 22, 2020 in Kennesaw, GA. At the time of his passing he was living in Marietta, GA. He was only a few months shy of his 30th birthday when a silent chest asthma attack took our beloved Andrew. Andrew was the first born of four boys. Jeff and Sherri were young parents and Jeff was in the Navy when he was born. One of the fondest memories is Jeff coming home from a tour to finally hold his sweet baby boy. Sherri, the ever-doting mother made sure to have their newborn son dressed in a matching sailor suit and the photo of the homecoming made the newspapers. Andrew was an adventurer from the start, very creative and had a love for the outdoors. He traveled the world visiting many other countries and loved every second of it. He graduated from Harrison High School and went on to work several jobs. His biggest success was running a thriving business called Sporeatic and was having his best month ever when he passed. His customers loved his work ethic, sincerity, and ability to get the job done right the first time. One constant was his love for his brothers. He attended most of their sporting events and was their biggest fan. Ultimately, he found his passion in both his family life and his work life, but nothing compared to the passion he had for the love of his life Claire. Andrew had asked Claire’s mother for her daughters’ hand in marriage just a short time before he passed. Andrew is survived by his parents Jeff and Sherri, his brothers Colby, Austin and Parker, his sister in law Torrie, his grandmothers Betty Gibbs and Gayle Smith, his niece Sophia, numerous aunts and uncles and cousins. Andrew also leaves behind his girlfriend Claire Rosser, his beloved dog Kam, and countless friends that were more like family to him. Andrew joins several relatives that entered heaven ahead of him. His grandfathers, Raymond Smith and David Gibbs, his great grandmother Lucille Murphy, several great uncles, and great aunts.

With a heavy heart, I won't be able to attend the services today. All of you are in my prayers and thoughts. Andrew was an amazing young man that touched many lives.

Hello everyone ,

First off my family and i want to thank you for being patient with the service date of my big brother Andrew Scott Gibbs. Unfortunately with the escalated numbers of Covid-19 rising in our state the funeral homes are not allowing a group in the amount of people wanting to show respect to Andrew in their facility due to the rules given to them and possibly stirring up an outbreak of the virus. (Which we totally understand) We want no harm or disease to affect anyone with attending such a large gathering. So we have decided to move forward and not keep pushing this back. It’s already hard enough. We’re very sorry to say that only our immediate family will have a service for him on July 11th in the morning at a certain location to give the family our personal grieving time. However , my parents have came up with an idea to involve everyone that wants to show their love and respect to my brother and to us. The same day, on July 11th starting at 2pm my dad’s house Jeff Gibbs will be opening his acre backyard with tables, chairs, tents, food, drinks etc to accommodate any and everyone to stop by and watch the video of my brothers beautiful but short life which most of you sent in pictures and will most likely be honored with him. My dads address is ( 1334 Mission Road, Cartersville GA 30120 ) . We understand if some can and cannot make it, but we would love to see you all there and to laugh and share some memories you had with my brother. Thank you all for understanding and we hope to see you on July 11th at my dads house. Have a great day!

I also would like to add that i have spoke to my parents about the Covid-19 situation that everyone in this world is dealing with . And we understand the series of events. We do in fact have a protocol that will be enforced and asked for everyone showing up to follow. We WILL have an abundance of masks for everyone to wear during this event, we WILL have hand sanitizer, and we WILL have gloves for everyone to use and have as they please so everyone stays safe while showing their respect. We want everyone to know this to feel at ease with coming by and joining us. Once again my dads address is ( 1334 mission road , Cartersville Ga 30120). And the event will start around 2 pm. Thanks you everyone and we look forward to seeing you all. Have a great day.

Andrew is one of my oldest, closest friends. I share so many on my favorite memories with him. Climbing waterfalls, seeing the solar eclipse, lake days, pool days, camping nights and everything in between. Sherri you were so lucky to be blessed with a son like Andrew. He will be missed so dearly. I’ll never forget him. Sending my love to your family every day

Deep and heartfelt condolences to the Gibbs family. As they grow up, boys leave their marks on the walls and throughout the house. That's what they do. Cherish those little blemishes. But they also leave their mark deep in our hearts. We know you will never lose the beautiful memories of Andrew. Think of and take comfort in the special times you had, the people he has touched and the positive influence he has made in this world. God bless Andrew and God bless the Gibbs family.

Love and sympathy,

Andrew,

I haven't been able to find the words, like many, to express what we're all going through. So, I wanted to share some of my memories that I know will make you smile and laugh in Heaven. Some of the early ones include playing Mike Tyson's Knockout with you, Colby and Jeff in your house in FL. Or the one on Lake Wiess where you found out how to catch so many catfish with your "Special" drag method. How could I forget the FL fishing trip where Colby tells the funniest story of his bathroom incident. I will forever miss us cracking up , crying with laughter. So many memories of us late as well. From blaring Excision in your Dodge or sharing a couple beers at your house. The many amazing days golfing and you telling me to go home when I broke my ankle at Cobblestone. Didn't do it and I'm so glad I didn't.

I relive our last golf game at Creekside together everyday. How so many things lined up, only God knows. I gave you that 2 hybrid that day that you always loved. You crushed it. We laughed, hugged, said we loved each other and just enjoyed the moment.

I hope I make you proud like you did me. You taught me how to enjoy life and I will forever miss you my friend, my brother, my cousin. Love you.

I knew Andrew for 10 years. He was always a kind, fun, energetic soul. He brought positivity and laughter wherever he went. He was an amazing human and my deepest condolences go out to the Gibbs family. His memory will stay in our hearts forever.

I don’t have the words to say, but all my thoughts, love and prayers shower his family and loved ones at this time and for many years to come. A bright light gone too soon. Love you Gibbys.

My heart goes out to the Gibbs family as they endure this great loss. I had the pleasure of knowing Andrew over the past year and a half and from the moment I met him he was so nice and always down to have a good conversation. From concerts, birthdays, and cabin weekends with our friends, Andrew was always up for a good time and someone I looked forward to seeing. I know he was extremely close with his family and I am praying for their healing during this difficult time. We love you Andrew! May the four winds blow you safely home.
