Coy Gibbs Obituary, Death – Coy Randall Gibbs passed away on Sunday, November 6, while peacefully sleeping in his own bed just a few hours after celebrating his eldest son Ty’s victory in the Xfinity Series championship.

Soon after Coy’s team won the championship on Saturday, he made the comment that he did not want to be recognized for their accomplishments in the media center. He stated that he did not want to be recognized for their success. Coy’s pursuit of the JGR title was put on hold on Saturday in favor of his responsibilities as Ty’s father. Elle’s goal and ambition to attend prominent institutions had his full backing, and he encouraged her to pursue them. He found a lot of fulfillment in the fact that he was able to teach Case and Jett a variety of sports and then watch how well they fared in those activities.
Even if it meant being absent physically, Coy wanted to be present in the lives of the people he cared about.
