Miles L. Gibson, 87, son of Miles F. & Dorothy (Burnham) Gibson, was born March 23, 1930 in Linden, Iowa. He passed away Friday, June 16, 2017 at his home.
Miles graduated from Panora High School in 1948. In 1950, he married Dorothy Simonsen at the Panora Church of the Brethren. They lived in the Redfield area for 48 years, before moving to their current home near Dallas Center in 2009. Miles worked in construction for Northern Natural Gas before being transferred to the office. He retired from Northern after over 25 years of service. In retirement, Miles enjoyed doing “Day Care” for his grandchildren and doing the books for his son, Randy’s, Vet Clinic in Minburn. Miles collected friends and while living along the highway, his door was also open for those needing help. Miles instilled the importance of education in his children and was proud of the accomplishments they each achieved. Family was the center of his life and most of all, the love he had for his wife was unmatched.
Miles is survived by his wife, Dorothy Gibson of Dallas Center; sons, Dr. Roger (Sue) Gibson of Kerrville, Texas and Dr. Randy (Dr. Laura) Gibson of Minburn, Iowa; daughter, Teresa Gibson of Dallas Center; six grandchildren, Amanda (Jim) Tidmore, Brett (Kim) Gibson, Megan (Ryan) Eldridge, Ryan (Katelyn) Gibson, Mia Gibson, & Julian Gibson; four great-grandchildren; and sister, Marilyn Maddick of Missouri. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Leonard and Larry.
Per Miles’s wishes, cremation has taken place, with no services held at this time.
