Daniel Gibson was born in Palmdale, Calif., on January 31, 1991, to Dale and Gale Gibson and was tragically lost on May 29, 2017, at the age of 26.
Daniel was a resident of the Kern River Valley for most of his life and from an early age enjoyed riding dirt bikes with his brother, Chris. He also enjoyed tinkering with things in his father’s garage and later in his own garage. He worked at various places around the valley and was co-owner of Valley Services for a period of time. Daniel was known for his sense of humor and witty nature. His greatest source of joy was his children.
He was preceded in death by both parents Dale and Gale Gibson; his grandparents Merle and Virginia Gibson; and his uncles, Donald and Alan Gibson. He is survived by his brother, Chris, (wife Amy Gibson, Las Vegas, Nev.) his children, Liam and Kaia Gibson, Weldon, Calif.; his grandmother Gloria Clark and aunt Cindy Lowrance, Lake Isabella, Calif.; his grandparents Robert Rayher and Betty Liewer, Acton, Calif.; and cousins Joyce (husband Mike Boske), and Tiffiny (husband Andrew Gaceta), Ridgecrest, Calif.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on July 2, 2017, at the Faith Community Church, 20 Panorama Dr., Wofford Heights, Calif. A reception at that location will follow the service.
