Timothy X. Gibson

A Tribute to Timothy X. Gibson- From His Family At Servilla Whitney

December 6, 2019

It is with great sadness that we learned that Timothy X. Gibson, who had only been with the firm for a short period of time, suddenly passed away on December 1, 2019.

Tim was born in Englewood, New Jersey and resided in Colts Neck.  He graduated from St. John Vianney in 1983, Cook College Rutgers University in 1987 and Franklin Pierce Law Center in 1994 in New Hampshire. Tim was a partner at Servilla Whitney LLC. You could find Tim on the sidelines of a soccer field or courtside volunteering as a coach or cheering on all of his daughters’ sports teams, a place he found true happiness. He took great pride in volunteering for Embrace Kids Foundation, where he served as a past Chairman of the Board.  Tim’s love for his family and friends was in EVERY part of his life. 

Tim was predeceased by his father, Thomas.  He is survived by his wife of 21 years Danielle; daughters Eva Marie (18), Catherine Claire (18), Julianna Therese (15); mother Judith; sisters, Loretto and Kathleen; brother, Christopher; brother-in-law, David Rizzo; nephew, Nicholas Rizzo; many aunts, uncles, cousins, treasured family friends and his best dog, Callie.

Tim had been a partner in several law firms, including Gibson & Dernier LLP, before joining Servilla Whitney several weeks before he passed away.  Tim and Scott Servilla had been professional colleagues and friends for over twenty years, and everyone in the firm was delighted when Tim joined the firm.  Aside from being an outstanding attorney, Tim made an immediate impact in our office.  While Tim’s death leaves a hole in our practice and our hearts, Tim’s colleagues and clients can cherish the memories of the pleasure of his company.

Tim spent several years coaching youth basketball and soccer and is a past Chairman of the Board of Embrace Kids Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to supporting the families of children with cancer, blood disorders and other serious medical conditions.
