Steven Patrick McKibben, 58, of Gainesville passed away unexpectedly Friday, June 12, 2020. He leaves behind to mourn his great loss, his wife of 35 years Angela Roberts McKibben and son, Patrick Taylor McKibben.
Steve was born in Ft Worth, TX on October 24, 1961. He was a 1980 graduate of Parkview High School and a graduate of Southern Polytechnic College. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Gainesville and was employed with Ingenico Group in Alpharetta, GA. Steve was “one of the good ones” and loved his wife and son with the greatest love imaginable. He was a kind and gentle loving soul, he loved the great outdoors and loved to take a ride on his motorcycle, camping, dropping a line in the water or just being outside in any form or fashion. He loved any genre of music and would sit outside countless evenings with Angela listening to music, thankful for the beauty and all of God’s blessings in his life. As his son was growing-up, he never missed a single practice, game or activity that Patrick was involved in – Patrick was his true pride and joy.
