Departed October 30, 2022 in Melbourne, Florida
Patricia “Pat” as she is known to all her family and co-workers passed on October 30, 2022. She was born in Bronx, New York and came to Brevard County in 1956 to South Patrick Shores with her beloved mother Evelyn Smith and brother Elliot Smith. Pat was preceded in death by her beloved brother Elliot in 2020 and her mother Evelyn in 1970.
She has two sons Robert Gibbs of Palm Bay and Scott Gibbs of West Virginia as well as four grandchildren Kyle Jones, Curtis Gibbs, Serena Gibbs and Damian Arce; and one new great granddaughter Arabella Rodriguez.
Pat worked in the defense industry for the former DBA System which is now L-3 Harris for 37 years as a Senior Financial Analyst after working her way up from the accounting department.
She was a Melbourne High School graduate, class of 1961, where she was an honor student and also played softball and women’s basketball. A little known fact about Pat is she had planned to become a doctor and had been accepted to medical school at St. Johns University in New York. Instead, she married Chris Gibbs for 23 years.
