Donald Francis Gibbons
Aug 7, 1927 – Mar 30, 2017
Age 89. Don passed away at Grace Point Crossing in Cambridge, Minnesota after a brief illness. Don was a Council Bluffs police officer until 1960 when he left the force to run a fishing resort in Park Rapids, Minnesota. Don returned to Council Bluffs in 1964 and opened Gibbons Bail Bonds, a business he owned and operated for almost 40 years. In 1980 Don moved to Mora, Minnesota, where he and his late wife Joan opened East Central Bail Bonds, a business he ran until his death. Don’s passion was work and he was a legend among bail bondsmen across the Midwest.
Don was preceded in death by his parents, Owen and Marian, and his late wife, Joan L. Gibbons. Don is survived by children from his first wife, Mary Margaret: sons, Thomas (Diane) and Larry (Sue), and daughter, Donna.
