Lyle Ray Gibson

Age 65, most recently residing in Peoria, Illinois passed away on August 10, 2023 at Carle Health Methodist Hospital in Peoria, Illinois. Born April 5, 1958 in Bakersfield, California to parents Leanord Gibson and the late Carol Beth (nee Armstrong) Graham. Lyle worked on oil rigs, was in construction, roofing and mobile home moving and set up. He enjoyed reading Louis L'Amour novels, searching the Holy Bible to understand Christ's Word, waking up early with a cup of black coffee to see the sunrise and visiting and drinking with friends. His favorite candy was the Atomic Fireball and he loved the fast food restaurant McDonald's but his favorite home cooked meal was spaghetti with garlic bread. Lyle had a smile that warmed the hearts of many and a drive that none could fathom.
