Gibson was a native of Fifeville and was a proponent of increasing race relations in Charlottesville. For his service, City Council named a portion of Avon Street for Gibson at their meeting on September 17, 2012.  However, the first sign posted to commemorate the honor contained a misspelling. 
After his father died, Gibson had to drop out of the McGuffey School.  He was known for supporting those in need and his store was considered to be a melting pot in the community.
