Alex was born on August 19, 1973 to his Mother Kathaleen Manor Bennett and Father Robert (Matilda) Gibbons. Sly is survived by eight sisters Andrea Benett, LaDricka Polite, Rhonda Culvert, El-Tanya (Moeshae) Whitten, Shawana Sams, Veronica (Phillip) Powers, JaCarla (Patrick) Walker, Brielle (Ronald) Allen. He has six brothers, Warrick Griffin, Robert (Carrae) Gibbons, Joshua (Latecia) Gibbons, Jairus Gibbons, Jalon Gibbons, and Malachi Gibbons. His aunts, Bertha Manor, Florence Griffin, Bonus Mother Emily Moody, and Godmother Angela Walker and Uncle Bobby Bell were all instrumental in his upbringing. He was the proud father to Lae Lae and Alexa. He leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and numerous others who will miss him dearly.
In spite of his shortcomings, he was constantly striving to overcome his obstacles. Unbeknownst to himself at times, Sly was a force to be reckoned with. If ever you needed a motivational word, he had a message for you. He was a true brother and friend. At the time of his passing and in following in his father’s footsteps, Sly was studying to become an ordained minister.
On Saturday, October 9, 2021, Alex entered eternal rest.
