May 31, 1936 ~ November 23, 2021
Born in: Greeley, Colorado
Resided in: Pueblo, Colorado
John B. Hibler, 85, died Nov. 23, 2021.
Predeceased by his beloved spouse and best friend, Barbara Jean (née Milberg) Hibler, who passed away in 2017. They were married 56 years. Survived by two children, son, Marc Hibler of Pueblo and daughter, Traci (Dave) Hampton of Edmond, Okla.; grandchildren, Scott Hibler, Nicole Hibler, Natasha Hibler and Michael Hampton; and great-grandson, Blair Quigley.
Born in Greeley in 1936, he attended public schools and graduated from Colorado State College (University of Northern Colorado) in 1958. He was a resident of Pueblo since 1963.
John was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army National Guard and a longtime business owner (Abell, Beaty & Hibler Insurance Agency) and a community volunteer in numerous capacities.
Athletically inclined since youth, he remained active in a variety of sports throughout his life. He and Barbara, family and friends spent many cherished years together on that infamous bus to Mile High Stadium. His church affiliation was one of his highest priorities. Among his regrets upon leaving this life are his failure to read more great books, harsh words that could not be taken back, and all the lost opportunities to talk deeply with family members and friends. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium.
