David was born in Sebastopol, CA. to Clabern and Earline (Gunnels) Gibbs on August 10, 1942. David went to school at Field and Melrose.

David went to welding school in Phoenix AZ, he also worked for the City of Clovis, and worked for the state highway dept in Melrose before becoming a lifetime farmer. As his daughters, we think dad was the best farmer ever. Our dad loved driving to the farm and looking at his crops. He had some of the best milo and wheat crops around. We think its because he talked to the crops and visited them daily.

Dad was baptized in the Seventh Day Adventist Church. We had the best Dad and the grandkids had the best Papa ever.

David is preceded in death by his parents, Clabern and Earline Gibbs; his baby girl Lisa, and his brother Phillip.

David is survived by his daughters; Melissa (Greg) Frazier, Connie (Kyle) Mobley; Grandchildren, Justin Frazier, Kurt (Haley) Frazier, Savannah and Shelby Mobley; Great grandchildren, Kolt Frazier, Luke Frazier, and Jaylynn Hernandez; Sisters, MaryAnn Mcloughlin, Esther Cantrell; Sister-in-law, Suzanne Dickinson; Nephew, Bryan Cantrel and lots of good friends.
