    I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Nibbs was a very kind and loving fatherly man. As a confused 13 year old girl who was transitioning from BVI to moving back to my birthplace in St. Thomas that I really hated, Mr. Nibbs hired me to help shelve the auto parts and take inventory at his store out by Pueblo in St. Thomas. A favorite male teen cousin of mine was working in the store stacking the shelves at the time and I would periodically go there to talk to my cousin and help him until Mr. Nibbs got tired of me hanging around and final gave me a brief part-time gig for spending change. I guess I proved I could climb the ladder like the males in the store and properly shelve the parts in those little white boxes without falling Lol.

    That was 38 years ago! Today I consider myself to be fairly (rather beyond fairly) successful, living on the mainland...earned B.S.A. and MSA degrees. That little job although for a brief period of time before I left for New York helped with my journey to self confidence. Even when you messed up he never got mad or acted mean. He just spoke to you like a father.

    I had forgotten about this brief experience, until I saw the name and then the picture...same smile after all these years. To his family; take comfort in knowing he left legacies not just from the business rewards, but the kindness he expressed to a young impressionable teen by letting her stack shelves and take inventory that help build her confidence and left her knowing she could indeed do anything the boys and men could.

      There is a saying that "we should all be ashamed to die without helping another Human being to become better" rest easy Sir Mr. Nibbs!, and condolences to your family.
