Obituary for Alvin Nibbs

The family announces the home-going of MR. ALVIN NIBBS, a long-time resident of St. Thomas, who passed away on August 23, 2017 at his home in St. Thomas at the age of ninety-two years.

Mr. Nibbs was born in Sea Cows Bay, Tortola but moved to St. Thomas in the 1950s in search of employment. For more than forty years he was a bar-tender at the historic Grand Hotel located across from the main post office. He could also be seen on weekends at Mountain Top and other major hotels on St. Thomas. Some will especially remember him for the delicacy of his fruit bunch which some called a Nibbs punch.

As the last of thirteen children, Mr. Alvin Nibbs is survived by a host of nieces and nephews living on St. Thomas, Tortola and on the U.S. mainland. Among his nieces and nephews are Denise Nibbs, Clarence Nibbs, Austin Nibbs, Alphonso Nibbs, Dr. Henry Smith, Glandwell Parsons, Kenneth Parsons, Doris Parsons, Tony Enrique, Joycelyn Mercer and Wilford Fahie of St. Thomas; Leando Nibbs, Bennet Smith, Dr. Janet Smith, Cecil Nibbs, Gene Nibbs, Raymond Nibbs, Marjorie Nibbs, Rev.

He is also survived by many, many great and great, great nieces and nephews too numerous to mention. His step grand-son, Michel Herbert of St. Thomas, lives in Virginia. He also leaves behind a long-time friend and companion in recent months, Mr. Ricardo Gomez.

Mr. Nibbs was preceded in death by his wife Johanna.
