Tyler Dean Gibson, his son; non-fiction books; observing the world around him; politics; cooking; walking on the beach with his dad; Texas sports; comedy -- only if really funny by his standards.
Charles Edward Gibson, 30, died on March 24, 2009, following a catastrophic brain injury while snowboarding with his son at Mammoth Mountain, California. Chuck was born September 25, 1978, in Bryan, Texas. He was living in Santa Barbara, California, where he was happiest.

Chuck was a unique human being with an incredible sense of humor and a great heart. In a moment of extreme sarcasm, Chuck stated that his purpose in life was to be an organ donor; he fulfilled that destiny. He is survived by his son, Tyler Dean Gibson of Phoenix, Arizona, his parents, Jerry and Elaine Gibson of Santa Barbara, his sister Erin Gibson of San Diego, California and many loving friends and relatives. The family wishes to thank all the people who gave him their encouragement and support.

Ten years have passed. Tyler has been snowboarding a lot this season. I imagine you are watching over him as he enjoys the slopes and reflects on the good memories of your times together. Love still holds your place.
