My Story

Born May 5, 1938 in St. Joseph, MO., he was the third of five children born to the late Merle Sylvester Gibbs and Hazel Pauline (Hill) Gibbs. He was stationed near Cambridge, England while serving in the USAF from 1956-1962. His passion for flight was developed during this period and in 1973 he earned his amateur pilot’s license. Throughout his life he cultivated a love of martial arts, sport cars, and spending time with his daughters and three grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by his family, including his ex-wife and longtime dear friend, Annette Penko;  children,  Alicia Kelley (Dan) and Brie Bitner (Bob); grandchildren, Ezekiel, Ava, and Rourick; siblings, Beverly Dunn;  Ed Gibbs,  Fred Gibbs (Irene) and many  nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.  Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Ken’s Life on Sunday, July 8, 2012 from 2-4PM at the home of Alicia and Dan Kelley, Kansas City, MO.  Inurnment and Military Honors will take place on Monday, July 9, 2012 at 2:30PM at the Leavenworth National Cemetery, Leavenworth, KS.
