Obituary for Aaron N. Gibson, Jr.

Print
Aaron Nathaniel Gibson Jr. (AKA Beets, Harry) was born on May 9, 1971 at the Lutheran Hospital in Baltimore on Mother’s Day of that year. He was born to his mother, Sheila and father, Aaron Gibson, Sr. His father was serving in the Army and stationed in South Korea when he was born. Aaron departed this life at Monmouth Medical Center, Long Branch, New Jersey on Monday, June 3, 2019 with his mother, father and sister present.

Beets had a wonderful childhood as he traveled with his family throughout the United States and overseas. He was the oldest of three children and enjoyed playing with his brother, Damon, and his little sister, Rachael. He enjoyed religious activities and was baptized at a young age at the Fulton Baptist Church in Baltimore, Md. As a teenager, Beets joined his family in uniting with the Second Baptist Church in Long Branch. There he met a new group of friends that became life time buddies. His male friends were introduced to the “basement” where Beets and his dad had established a baseball, football and wrestling arena. The boys stated that they thought “the Gibson's only sat around and prayed all day.” They were pleasantly surprised.

Beets attended the Eatontown Schools through the 8th grade and one year at Monmouth Regional High School. He graduated 3 years later in 1989 from Kaiserslautern High School in Germany. After arriving in Germany Beets and his brother joined the Vogelweh Gospel Service’s youth choir. Their choir was well known throughout Europe and had opportunities to sing and travel throughout Germany, Great Britain, Belgium, and Italy. After extensive training over the course of a year, Beets was assigned and lived in Chicago for 10 years and worked at the O’Hare International Airport as the single point of contact for American and United Airlines and for regional stations, nationwide and international. He also was the Delivery Manager for American Airlines Self Service Ticketing, Flight Information Display and Curbside check-in products for the Midwest Region accounting for more than 50 cities.

He was also the Project Coordinator and Technical Lead for the American Airlines Terminal Three 2.5-million-dollar expansion project and was responsible for employee staffing, training and scheduling. He interfaced directly with client Senior Management regarding areas of concern and product support and monitored and resolved escalations within his region. He was dedicated, energetic, strongminded, a strategic thinker with exceptional leadership skills, communication abilities and had relational and interpersonal skills and was professional in all his endeavors which resulted in a cooperative team. Finally, he was instrumental in transitioning and converting Trans World Airlines to American Airlines at the St. Louis Hub airport.

Several years after he returned to New Jersey his health began to decline and he moved in to live with his parents. Beets reunited with Second Baptist Church and his spiritual walk with the Lord increased and he continued to trust Him for everything. He was an awesome cook with exceptional shopping techniques. His focus was completely centered on helping his family while he placed himself behind all others. He was a model son and greatly loved.

Aaron Jr. was predeceased by his paternal and maternal Grandparents – Deacon and Deaconess Curtis Gibson Sr. and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Alexander Sr. and a special uncle, Mr. Wesley Gibson. He is survived by his parents Reverend Aaron and Sheila Gibson, siblings Damon Gibson and Rachael (Willie) Daniels of Long Branch, NJ, nephews Dequanne and Tyson Gibson, Red Bank, NJ, nieces Destiny, Makayla and Ayana Gibson-Daniels, Long Branch, NJ, and a host of uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.
