If you’ve followed the court battle between Gibson’s Bakery and Oberlin College then you probably already knew this was coming. Over the weekend David Gibson passed away at home surrounded by his family:
David Gibson, the owner of Gibson’s Bakery of Oberlin, died Saturday at his home after a months-long fight with pancreatic cancer.
The news of his death was shared on the family business Facebook page Saturday.
“Today we lost a great man husband and father. David Gibson passed away this morning at home surrounded by his family,” the post says.
In August, Gibson announced that he’d been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. In a video message posted on Facebook, Gibson thanked everyone who had supported his family in its long legal battle with Oberlin College and predicted he might not see the resolution of the case.
