Michael Gibson and daughter, Naomi Gibson, "The Giver," DRT Nov. 2015

Our dear friend and DRT actor, Michael Gibson, passed away in the early hours, Friday, December 8, 2017. His death was caused by an aggressive cancer that was beginning to tell on Michael even as he performed so beautifully with us in "Walk Two Moons" last year. Michael fought bravely and was supported by a broad community and a loving family.

The last time I saw Michael was only last month, when he came, weak, but well-supported by family and friends, to sit on the front row as Naomi performed her DRT acting class fall showcase. Michael never missed Naomi's shows. Now we will miss him, but we will not forget.

Michael’s memorial service

Saturday December 16 at 1pm at American cremation and funeral service. 1204 Person St Durham 27703. There will be fellowship and refreshments to follow there as well.
