Brant Gibbs

August 28, 1980 — December 1, 2014

Our loving son, brother, grandson, uncle, friend, fierce competitor, and heroic public servant passed away at the age of 34, on Monday, December 1, 2014. He was born on August 28, 1980 to David and Lee Ann (Yerbich) Gibbs of Albuquerque, NM. He was a lifelong resident of Albuquerque, NM who graduated from Rio Grande High School in 1998. It was that same year that he was the state's wrestling champion. He, also enjoyed cross country running and was undefeated to this day as a cage fighter. Brant was a medic for Superior Ambulance and had just recently graduated from the Albuquerque Fire Department Academy. He enjoyed watching football and was a Baltimore Ravens fan. He loved to play chess and other strategy games. One of his favorite quotes was, "A stupid man's report of what a clever man says is never accurate because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand." Brant will be remembered for his brilliant and intellectual way of thinking, his heroism and his love for his family and community. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Margie Yerbich, and R.J. and Wanda Gibbs. Brant is survived by his parents, David and Lee Ann Gibbs, of Albuquerque, NM; brother, Jared Gibbs and his wife, Alissa, of Albuquerque, NM; niece and nephew, Dayvanie and Aven Gibbs; grandfather, Julian Yerbich; uncles and aunts, Coleen (Milt) Cumiford, Steve (Sandy) Gibbs, and Randi (Jennifer) Gibbs; and many cousins, friends and colleagues who mourn his passing. A Memorial Service will be held at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at Legacy Church, 4701 Wyoming NE, Albuquerque, NM. Internment will follow at Sunset Memorial Park, Albuquerque. Honorary pallbearers will be the members of the Albuquerque Fire Department's 85th Cadet Class: Kyle Christian, Diego Cano, Benjamin Leverett, Wayne Martin, Michael Pandazis, Dustin Ryan, and Ryan St. Denis.
