Marvin Jule Gibour, 92, of Kenosha, passed away on Wednesday, November 6, at Meadowmere surrounded by his loving family.

Born on May 10, 1927 in Nadeau, MI; he was the son of the late Jule and Edna (DeRosler) Gibour.

He served in the United States Army during World War II, from August 18, 1945 until he was honorably discharged on March 14, 1947.

On September 25, 1948, he married Beverly Boye in MI. Shortly after they moved to Waukegan, IL.

Marvin owned and operated Gibour Masonary. He was taught the trade by Beverly’s father. He was a very hard worker and was truly talented. His masonry always stood out. He worked on schools, churches, homes, and fireplaces in Lake County, IL and Southeast WI. He built two homes for his family, one of which was his dream home in Wallace, MI where he retired.

He enjoyed fishing, gardening, and spending time with his three loving granddaughters, Heather, Missy, and Sarah. Marvin was an excellent bowler. He bowled on many leagues and was no stranger to a 300 game. He was an avid Packers fan.

He is survived by his loving wife, Beverly of Kenosha; his three children, James (Merced) Gibour of Lindenhurst, IL, Judith Thompson of Kenosha, and Lawrence Gibour of Canyon Lake, TX; six grandchildren; and many great grandchildren. He is further survived by other family and friends.

Marvin was preceded in death by his parents; seven siblings, Irene Luft, Marcela Jones, Florence Belanger, Mary Louise Pirlot, Walter Gibour, Charles Gibour and Art Gibour; and his special and loving, one and only, son-in-law, Richard Thompson.

Marvin’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff of Meadowmere for their compassionate and loving care, as well as, Hospice Alliance.

Private services were held.
