In 1964, after living for a short time in Albuquerque, he moved his family to Dallas when he was hired as a pilot for Trans Texas Airways. At age 38 he became a Captain on the Convair 600, later upgrading to the DC 9. Gibb and Jackie moved back to Albuquerque in 1981 and he finished his career with Continental Airlines (which was bought by Trans Texas Airways/Texas International). During his 30-year stint in the airlines, he accumulated over 30,000 hours of flight time. Gibb loved gardening, NASCAR, the Reno Air Races, and a cold beer. He considered everyone he ever met as a "friend." Gibb was preceded in death by parents Lester and Doris Gibbons, and sister Margel Sowell. Final Flight Cleared for take off: Heaven's in sight Visibility unlimited for this final flight. The flight plan has been filed, no bags to pack No cumbersome luggage to hold you back.
