Post 4139 of Lapeer, MI

Our beginnings were born from the veterans that saw the need for a post that would serve this community and in December of 1978 the post was incorporated. However we have been here continually since 1956.

Since those humble beginnings The VFW Post in Lapeer has grown and continued to carry out the purpose of the VFW and the Mission of the VFW. Operating on the help of its veterans and its auxilliary membership the post has continued to be a vital instrument for the health and well being of many veterans and its families.

Why We Exist

Our Post - What They Do & Why

The obvious of course is the Purpose and the Mission of the VFW.

The not so obvious is what the Post brings not only to its' members but to the community and extends out from that.

In the following pages it is our hope to show   those things to all that visit this site.

In Memoriam

In Memory of Kevin Gibson

Kevin Gibson

Kevin Vern Gibson, age 57, of Lapeer, MI went to be with the Lord on November 4, 2018. He was born on February 25, 1961 in Charlotte, MI to K.V. and Rose Gibson. Kevin honorably served his country as an Airborne Ranger in the United States Army from 1978 to 1986.

He is survived by his loving wife Rebecca Lynn Gibson, his sister Sylvia (Murrel) Gremillion, his eight children Kenneth Gibson, Matthew Smith, Nichole Gibson, Brandi (Adam) Pierson, Nicholas Delp, Michelle (Alex) Cholewka, Abby Marshall, and Emilee Baldwin. Kevin will live long as Papaman in the hearts of his grandchildren Chloe, Preston, Keira, Kylie, Ryker, Roman, Lily, Chelsea, Daniel, and Graham.

Kevin will be remembered by his family as a stubborn man with a heart of gold, a corny joke always on hand, a constant desire to learn and teach, an affinity for technology and superheroes, any tool you need on his belt, and the man who would never stop pushing you to follow your dreams because he believed in every one of us. Missed greatly by his grandblessings, who were his greatest joys in this world. And by those who met him as their quickest friend.

Kevin is preceded in death by his granddaughter Danilynn Baldwin, his mother Rose Gibson, and his father and stepmother K.V. and Marie Gibson.

All the way!
Kevin this is in memory of you and your dream,
We hope that as you look down you smile and see that your dream came true to have a site dedicated to what the VFW means to every Veteran that walks through its doors and know the great pride in being asked to try and finish your dream.
