Gib was born on March 7th 1951 to Emil Ford and Clara Christensen Larson in Logan, Utah.
He married Joyce Gunnell in 1970 in Logan, Utah. They were later sealed in the Logan LDS Temple. After living for a short time in Arizona while Gib attended Electronics tech school, they raised their family in Cache Valley. They made sure to instill a love of nature and adventure in their three kids. Gib and Joyce celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in December.
Gib had a successful career in the field of electronics and as a business owner. He loved all things with a motor, especially his trucks, cars, and motorcycles.

He found great joy in returning to his father’s farm near Soda Springs, Idaho, and taking his children and grandchildren there to ride motorcycles and shoot guns.
A devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Gib held many callings in the church including 16 years serving the Young Men. He was a devoted father, husband, and grandfather.
