Thomas W. Gibbons Jr. Obituary

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Thomas W. Gibbons Jr. of Cincinnati, Ohio, on May 14, 2024. He was born in Cincinnati on April 2, 1935. A proud veteran of the Army, Tom served his country during the Korean War.


Tom cherished the written word, often found engrossed in a book, which led him to work at Borders bookstore in his later years. He had a genuine passion for connecting with people, engaging in meaningful conversations, and nurturing lifelong friendships. His quick wit and warm sense of humor never failed to bring joy to those around him.


A graduate of Purcell High School and Xavier University, Tom was a Claims Adjuster and Supervisor in the insurance industry, illustrating his dedication and work ethic. He truly valued education and continued to pursue knowledge throughout his life.


Tom was also a long-time blood donor at Hoxworth Blood Center. He received a letter several years ago that his blood had helped save the lives of a mom and her baby.


Tom is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Rosalie Gibbons, his daughter Jennifer Gibbons, siblings, Jacqueline (the late James) Flege, Pamela Gibbons, and Terry (Theresa) Gibbons and brother-in-law, William (Karen) Weinle. He will be missed dearly by his loving nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.


He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas W. Gibbons Sr. and Helen Schehr Gibbons, as well as his niece, Julie Flege and nephew, Kevin Flege.


Visitation will take place at Spring Grove Funeral Homes- Reading, 8633 Reading Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45215 on May 20, 2024, at 8:30 am, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of the Valley, 330 W. Vine St. Cincinnati, OH 45215 at 10:00 am. Tom will be laid to rest at Gate of Heaven Cemetery that same day, where he will find eternal peace.


Memorial donations may be made in Tom';s name to Wounded Warrior Project or the St. Vincent de Paul conference at Our Lady of the Valley Parish.


In remembrance of his service and dedication, Thomas Gibbons Jr.'s life will be celebrated, his memory cherished, and his spirit honored by all those who were fortunate enough to know him. May he rest in everlasting peace.


"Spread your wings, and I know that when God took you back He said Hallelujah you're home."
