Bill, as everyone called him, was a true hero, serving in two tours of the Vietnam War and having spent over 23 years in the Air Force helping his country.

He is also survived by his sister Sharon Gibson and his nephew Philip Gibson, both of Marietta; as well as his other loving family and friends across the globe.
