|With Gibbo on the Isle of Man|
Aged 71, he was taken to hospital after falling downstairs at his home and was eventually removed from life support.
Manchester-born Gibbo, a fervent Manchester City supporter and long time King's Head regular, left his home in Playa del Rey five years ago to return to the UK, where he lived with his sister in the Isle of Man, but he always kept in touch with his friends in California .
An excellent golfer, he worked as a car salesman in Santa Monica for many years until retiring to
play more golf.

I last saw him in October when my wife and I visited the Isle of Man. We drank with him in his local pub and the following day he took us on a tour of the island.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
