“You come home to us, we’ll take good care of you”.

Since 1935 there has been a Gibbons Family Presence in Chicago. Chicago was the welcoming port for so many of the Irish Families who came to America. When Grandpa Gibbons established the first location on the west side of Chicago, there was no doubt that the Gibbons Family would be comforting families for generations to come. The same feeling and pride for the city that was now home to generations of families and millions of immigrants is felt today at Gibbons Family Funeral Home.

Tom and Rita Gibbons were the second generation, raising their family for a time above the funeral home at 5917 W. Irving Park Road. Today Michael and Kerry Gibbons are the 3rd Generation of the family to welcome your family when you need our assistance. The family remains very active and connected to the families in the community, the parishes, the clubs and the neighborhoods. And when a neighbor passes away, the family comes together at Gibbons Family Funeral Home, where, as Rita promises, “we’ll take good care of you”.

What would mom really like?


Kathie Warta makes an important case about why Pre-planning might be helpful for families. As a daughter, she felt a tremendous obligation to do everything her mom may have wanted. She had wished her mom had made some very important choices of her own so she could be honored in the most appropriate way possible. 


Gibbons Family Funeral Home makes this process available and as simple as possible for families. Getting everything down on paper is a huge help to loved ones who are tasked with making very important decisions, often during an emotionally difficult time. “Removing the doubt is a big help,” says Michael Gibbons, adding, “you can see and feel the relief of families when they have the direction their loved one created”. An option to pre-pay through a separate, independent financial instrument is available. This policy is transferable if locations or circumstances change. Financial Planning professionals have been adding this for several years now to act as an inflation hedge against rising costs. 


Gibbons Family Funeral Home is here 24/7/365 to serve you for Pre-Planning, At-Need, or simply answer any questions you have, with no obligation. 

For any questions you may have about At-need services or pre-planning, don’t hesitate to contact us. 773-777-3944 or www.gffh.com

Gibbons helped bring dad home from North Carolina to Chicago. The Chicago Fire Dept. provided a motorcade to Gibbons Family Funeral Home

Chicago Fire Dept. Lieutenant Leonard passed away in North Carolina while receiving treatment. It was necessary to bring him home to his real home; The Northwest side of Chicago. Michael Gibbons made the phone calls to coordinate with the funeral home in North Carolina to bring Lt. Leonard home, working with son, John Leonard here in Chicago. What John did not know was that upon arriving at the airport, Michael would bring the hearse directly onto the tarmac at the airport and be greeted by Fire Trucks with crossed ladders and dozens of Chicago Fire Fighters in Dress Uniforms standing at attention honoring the arrival of their brother Fire Fighter and Officer. With Lights on, the Fire Dept. provided a motorcade back to Gibbons Family Funeral Home on Irving Park Road. “It was something we didn’t know about, didn’t expect and really very cool”, recalls John Leonard, regarding his father’s arrival.”.

Michael knew. Because First Responders have a special place at Gibbons Family Funeral Home and always have. “We have a history and a tradition of taking care of the families of the men and women who serve our citizens in Chicago” says Michael Gibbons. Both the Chicago Fire Department and Chicago Police Department consider their members to be family, and that tradition and camaraderie starts when a member passes away and extends through to the moment when they say good bye to a fallen brother or sister and send them home…not quietly, but triumphantly.

For the Gibbons Family, it is an honor and a privilege to be among the people who Chicago’s families choose for this responsibility. There’s no effort too great to take special care of the people who protect us every day.
