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.
The Post Name
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 Memory of Kevin Gibson
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!
