Peter Francis Gibney, 69, of Salisbury, passed away Monday, March 26, 2018, at the W.G. Hefner VA Medical Center, after an extended illness. He was with his friends John and Barbara Mitzen.
Peter was a disabled Veteran who served proudly in Vietnam and received three commendations. After serving he returned home, went back to school to earn his diploma and received an associates degree at Guilford Technical Community College. He was a skilled tradesman which included underwater welding and construction. Peter was the kind of man that gave the cashiers at the markets a silver dollar, someone down on their luck a $20, and supported a Native American School in Montana. He will be missed.
Peter had two sisters and two brothers.
He has two sons, James Edward Gibney and Jonathon Patrick Gibney.
A graveside service will be held at 2:00 PM on Tuesday, April 10, at the Salisbury National Cemetery, 501 Statesville Boulevard, Salisbury, NC 28144, with military rites provided by the North Carolina National Guard and the Rowan County Veterans Honor Guard.
