In Loving Memory of Stephen Hibbert
May 11th, 1952 June 1st, 2013
Humble – Humorous – Hibbert
Born on May 11th, 1952, in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, England, Stephen Hibbert lived a thoroughly adventurous and enjoyable life. Though cut short by cholangiocarinoma (cancer of the bile duct), he did not let that prevent him from caring for and loving his family, exploring the world, and keeping up appearances with his insatiable dry wit as only an Englishman would. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and support for his family throughout his battle with cancer.
