He is survived by his children, Jade, Dakota, Alayna, Anthony III, Avery & Aiden; Wife, Theresa; Mother, Tammy Gibbs; Sister, Samantha(Michael) Welch; Nana, Bobette McCall; Niece & Nephew, Brooklyn & Ethan; Aunts, Tracey(Larry) Ward & Kim Fowler; Uncles, David(Deb) Gibbs, Wally(Carla) Gibbs & Fred Fowler; and numerous cousins. Preceding him in death was his father, Anthony Gibbs Sr; his brother Zachary; his grandparents, Sarah & Gray Gibbs; his grandfather, Fred Fowler Sr; and his uncle/fishing buddy, Steven Clarke.
Anthony grew up in Hammond where he attended Morton High School. He lived down south in TN for awhile where he could enjoy fishing with his kids and being a real hillbilly. Anthony was so much more than his struggles. He loved to cook, give tattoos, and spent hours practicing them on himself. He loved to play guitar just like his dad. He never knew a stranger and would always make you feel welcomed. He would do anything for a laugh and always enjoyed a good dare. Anyone that truly knew him, knew he had such a big heart. He’d give you anything even if it wasn’t his to give. He could make you laugh even when you were mad at him.
He loved fiercely and deeply and we take comfort in knowing that Anthony is now at peace surrounded by light.
