Obit for Marine veteran: He ‘hated’ bad D.C.-area drivers

A retired U.S. Marine Corps colonel's obituary has gone viral because of his hatred for D.C.-area drivers.

An accomplished Vietnam veteran, retired Marine Corps colonel, husband and father will be remembered for a host of reasons, including his hatred for Northern Virginia drivers.

In an obituary published Sunday in The Washington Post, Col. Robert F. Gibson is described as a man who might have had a few choice words driving in the Washington, D.C., Area.

“A native of Northern Virginia for the last 30 years of his life, he hated how all of you were incapable of driving competently,” the obituary reads.

Gibson, who was born in Ohio, died Dec. 26, 2017. He spent 30 years serving as an officer of Marines, deployed twice to Vietnam and was involved in operations in Honduras, Beirut, Norway, the Philippines, Kuwait, and Desert Storm. He received a host of awards for his service.
