Hi I'm Gary Gibb

10 siblings. Baby brother is 2x Olympic beach volleyball player. I have 4 boys & 1 girl all just moved out. Love tech.

About Me

I like to scuba dive, play golf, and spend time with my family. I went to kindergarten in Germany. I served a mission in Argentina. I moved homes 13 times before I was 20. I have masters degrees from University of Utah and BYU. I love dogs and hugs in general. I survived hurricane Wilma with my family in Mexico. I wrote the original display code for WordPerfect and worked with the product for over 10 years. I worked at Ancestry.com for over 10 years and traveled to China a couple times every year to coordinate efforts with our partners over there. I have been to the olympics in Utah, China and London. The last 2 trips were to see my brother Jacob Gibb compete in Beach Volleyball. He is still the top beach volleyball player in the USA. I have 5 children. 4 boys and 1 girl. Our youngest, Shaya was just married this summer and now we are official "empty nesters". 4 of them are still in the area and we play in a soccer league together as a family (I play goalie). I have a testimony of the eternal nature of our families.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. I gained my own testimony of the gospel and I love it. It has blessed my life every day. I love God.

How I live my faith

I work with the young single adults in my area. They are full of life and inspire me. I love to teach. My wife is an amazing listener. The YSA love her. I love her more. I have had opportunities to serve as a soccer coach, scout master, and institute teacher. One experience that strengthened my faith was when I was 16 my father was in a motorcycle accident. He almost died and was in intensive care for almost a month. My home ward held a fast and ward prayer. I felt the love of all the members and I knew that their faith was helping to heal my father. It strengthened me in ways I still can't explain. My dad had a tracheotomy for almost a year. It was a humbling time but a time when I grew close to my family and my Heavenly family. A couple years ago I was on vacation in Playa del Carmen Mexico with my children when Hurricane Wilma hit. We were stuck in the hurricane for 2 days. Afterward we had no communication with the outside world for almost 2 weeks. We had little food and basic supplies. It was another time where I felt the love and support of my Heavenly Father. We saw a lot of devastation and saw first hand different sides of people. Some used this time to show their hearts. We were helped by many people from Mexico as well as our loved ones back in the USA. On one side we saw the vandalism and dark side of some when no official supervision was in place. The hurricane brought out the best and worst in others. It is just like life but magnified in a short amount of time.
