A Tribute to Aloma Kewania Gibson

Beloved father, brother, and friend Aloma Kewania Gibson passed away at the age of 76 on October 5th, 2018.  After a multi-year battle with COPD and complications that led to numerous hospital stays, Aloma passed away on his own terms at home.

He will be remembered for his unwavering humor and constant commitment to those closest to him. Aloma touched the lives of countless people and will be deeply missed.

Aloma was a treasured friend at Sigma Phi Epsilon at the University of Minnesota. Aloma was much more than the Chef over the past two decades, he was an integral part of building balanced men. Aloma went to SigEp weddings, birthday parties, trips out of state with Brother’s families for Thanksgiving dinner, ... If you ever met him, you will never forget him.

In order to honor Aloma’s limitless compassion towards others, friends of Aloma opened this campaign to help defer his final expenses.  The immediate need is to fund his funeral expenses.   

Once we succeed in funding funeral expenses, we will close this campaign and establish a separate fund with the Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation and raise tax deductible donations through the foundation to establish a permanent scholarship endowment in Aloma's name to help send UG brothers to Conclave.
