Riggs Bryan Gibbons, 16, passed away on February 9, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona. He was born to Bryan and Auburn (Sherwood) Gibbons in Phoenix, Arizona on January 14, 1999. Riggs was a loving older brother to siblings Jaxen and Roxy. Riggs is survived by grandparents Sam and Vicki Sherwood, Duane and Janette Gibbons, and Valorie and David Haussman. Having been born with a congenital heart defect, Riggs spent 16 years defying medical odds, building faith, and bringing hope to his family and doctors. Riggs contracted an infection in his blood and because he was born without a spleen, he was unable to fight it. He will always be remembered as a young man with a contagious smile who loved life. Riggs was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and he had a burning testimony of the gospel and his Savior. He wasn’t afraid to share his testimony and touched many lives by doing so. We are confident that Riggs was called home to his Heavenly Father to serve the mission he had spent his earthly life preparing for. Our beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend will be dearly missed. A visitation will be held from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, Friday, February 13th with Funeral Services held at 10: 00 am, with a visitation 1 hour prior, Saturday, February 14, 2015 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1865 S. Higley Rd. in Gilbert, Arizona.
