Michael C Gibbons of Austin, Texas and long term resident of Tucson, Arizona passed away on January 3, 2023 at the age of 72. He left us peacefully in his home with his loving family close by. Michael moved
from Tucson, Arizona to Austin, Texas recently to be closer to his family.
Michael was truly a good person to all he met. Active in his church as a deacon for many years and
more than willing to help anyone in need. Michael was a true technician with the uncanny ability to fix
and understand things other could not. He was a great friend to all he encountered, willing to help in
anyway he could. He helped and supported many local organizations and was everyone’s best friend.
Michael immigrated from Guatemala at a very early age with his family. He lived in Illinois for a time
before moving to Tucson for most of his remaining life. With his technical logic, he started by working
on cars and moved on to the complex world of computers, spending the majority of this time with BHP
Copper in Tucson. He would help anyone trouble shoot their computer. He was well know for this
Michael was a most loving and caring Father, Father-in-Law, Grandfather, husband, uncle and friend. He
showered his family with love. He is survived by his devoted and loving daughter Theresa,
granddaughter Juniper, Son-in-Law Casey and nephew Steven. He was preceded in death by both his
parents, brother and Theresa’s Mother.
