George Ernest Gibson, III, loving father and brother in Christ, left us to be with our Lord and Savior Tuesday, February 11, 2020.

George was born March 5, 1951 in Cherry Point, NC. He studied education and psychology at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. George retired from Hixson and East Ridge high schools and worked at many other educational facilities. He loved teaching and working with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and chess club. He was particularly fond of nature, hiking, sailing, wood working, and playing guitar.

He was preceded in death by his father George Ernest Gibson, Jr., USMC; mother, Mary Elizabeth Turner Gibson; brothers James Patrick and Michael David; and son, Thomas Scott.

George is survived by son, Jon; sister Lisa; and six nephews. Condolences and stories may be left at

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to St. Jude. A gathering will be in his honor when preparations can be coordinated.
