Ricky Ray Gibson, age 59 of Kuhn Lake, passed away after battling cancer on Friday, October 16, 2020 at 12:46 a.m. in his home.

Born in Knoxville, TN, Ricky was the son of Alfred Bogan Ellerbe, Sr. and Joyce (Hatcher) Ellerbe. He spent his formative years in Florida, later moving to Kosciusko County where he attended Warsaw Community High School. On November 3, 1978, he was married to Phyllis Ilene Shepherd who survives at home.

A hard worker who was naturally gifted with mechanical abilities, Ricky could fabricate and fix nearly anything. He worked at Starcraft and Forest River for many years, spending much of his time as a lead and supervisor. In his spare time, he would put his mechanical genius to work fixing cars, motorcycles and building things.

Those who miss him dearly and treasure his memory include wife, Phyllis Gibson of Kuhn Lake; daughter, Amanda Allen of Kuhn Lake; three grandchildren: Cheyenne Rager, Madison Gibson and Page Allen; siblings: Alfred Ellerbe, Jr., Nathan Ellerbe, Sr. and Doretha (Jerry) Furr; son-in-law, Richard Allen; daughter-in-law, Susan Gibson and sister-in-law, Angie Ellerbe. Those who welcomed Ricky at the pearly gates include his sons, Ricky J. Gibson and Daniel B. Gibson; brothers, Carol Ellerbe and John Ellerbe; an infant sister, Tammy and their parents.

Friends may join visitors at Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw on Thursday, October 22, 2020 from 3 to 6 p.m. Memorial gifts may be directed towards Ricky’s final expenses in care of Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw, IN 46580.
