Brian Gibbs

Brian Gibbs


Its very sad to have to report that Brian Gibbs has passed away at the age of 75.

Brian was a true Gentleman and a stalwart of Somerset Table Tennis for many decades. An active supporter of the sport both locally and further afield. He was the official Somerset County Umpire and although needing regular dialysis for the last couple years, still made the effort to support county events. He was still playing regularly for Henton in the Mendip league as recently as March.

Brian was also an International Umpire and had travelled the world officiating at top events. He is a great loss to the sport and the County and our thoughts go out to his family.


The Funeral arrangements are as follows:

Wednesday 12th June 2019, 11:30am at Henton Church which is near Wells. The Gibbs family have said everyone is welcome.

The wake will be held at Henton Village Hall immediately afterwards and again everyone is welcome.

The Family have also said there no need to feel obligated to wear black.
