Ronald Lynn Gibson passed peacefully Thursday June 24, 2021 in the home of his sister in Mesquite NV, after an extensive battle with lung cancer. Ronald was born September 14, 1956in Vernal, UT to Lyle Elmer and Hermoine Hoyt Gibson. He was the youngest of their six children. \nShortly after Ronald was born, the family began moving around as Lyle worked road construction. They lived in several places throughout southern Utah and Nevada. The family settled for a time in Las Vegas, NV when Ronald was about 5 years old. When Ronald was a teenager the family moved again to Enoch, Utah where Ronald finished growing up. \nRonald worked various forms of construction throughout his life but was an excellent concrete layer. Before he settled on concrete, he had the opportunity be a part of the construction of the Cove Fort bridges on I-70. Later in life, after he had settled into being a concrete layer, he was a part of the building of the Southern Utah University Student Center. Despite having dyslexia Ronald was able to complete all the testing needed to obtain his contractor’s license and he started his own concrete contracting company called Desert Wind Concrete. This endeavor was sadly cut short by a tragic car accident that left Ronald disabled. \nRonald had a love of nature, family and an artistic streak that all went hand in hand. Horses and dogs were always a part of Ronald’s life. He would never have called himself a horseman but he had a lot to offer when it came to working with horses. Ronald loved being in nature, hiking and sharing these things with family and friends. He was always finding antlers, rocks and fossils of all shapes, sizes and colors. Ronald inherited a rock saw which he used to cut and give away geodes and rocks of all compositions. Ronald was always carving on a rock or piece of wood. Sometimes these objects became completed items, other times they remained unfinished ideas. He could see an artistic use for most anything. He spent his years fighting lung cancer making rock, nut and wooden jewelry that he gave to his family and friends. \nRonald is survived by his son Jason Gibson and his daughter Kate Leigh Kupfer, his nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He is survived by his sisters Donna (Boyd) Moss and Ilene (Gary) Hughes and his brothers Mack Gibson and Earl (Joy) Gibson. He also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. \nRonald was preceded in death by his son Jeremy Gibson, his parents Lyle and Hermoine Hoyt Gibson, and his sister Phyllis Hall. \nFuneral services will be held Saturday July 3, 2021 at Southern Utah Mortuary (190 N 300 W, Cedar City, UT). There will be viewing at 9:30 am followed by services at 11:00 am.
