Our deepest sympathy to the Gibbs family and friends. Ken will always live in your heart and memories. From the moment we met Ken, my husband Daniel and I knew he was a memorable soul. Ken had a kind heart and was always very considerate of others. Through the years we had many conversations and they always ended with laughter. Working together on several projects made us realize that Ken had an outstanding professional ethic that we admired him for. It was a pleasure meeting you Ken Alan Gibbs and we will miss you dearly but we will never forget you. May God keep you in his grace until we see each other again.
Your friends,
Amarilys "Amy" and Daniel Peters

Ken actually taught me to play tennis as a teen!! Or should I say I chased around the ball as Ken waxed the court with me! I remember he was a thinking player I was a runner and apparently chaser. Rest well my friend!

They say a tree is known by the fruit that it bares, I have known Ken through the beautiful, talented, and smart kids I've had the pleasure of serving from Sara to Phillip and Anna at the Bruton Memorial Library. With the support of Debra, Ken's legacy will continue thrive in the Plant City community and beyond 😇 My prayers are with the family - Felecia
