Our condolences to the entire Gib Haight Family,
I am so pleased that I had the opportunity to meet and golf with Gib last summer at Jackson Valley. I enjoyed his easy going manner---except on some golf challenges. I was looking forward to another round this year.
Our memorial donation will honor his memory at the Youngsville Library.
