Stephen L. Hibbert, 65, Warren


Stephen Leonard Hibbert, 65, passed away at Pawtucket Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, after a short illness.

Stevie was born in Fall River, MA and lived his whole life in the area including in Swansea, Barrington and Warren. Steve worked for years as a self-employed landscaper. Although he faced his own struggles, he maintained enduring relationships with his childhood friends from Touisset and with those he met during his 30 years in Warren, through many group associations.
Mr. Hibbert was predeceased by his parents, Albert E. and Jane Gifford Hibbert, his maternal grandparents, Rev. Clarence and Gladys Gifford of Assonet, and his paternal grandparents, Frank and Margaret Hibbert of Somerset. He is survived by brothers, Albert B. Hibbert and wife Pat of Illinois, and Andrew P. Hibbert of California; his sisters, Alison Hibbert Salinas and her husband Fred of Texas, and Beverly F. Fleming of Florida; and many nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind his beloved cat Junior.

In lieu of immediate services, a private burial will be held at Oak Grove Cemetery in Fall River.  A

memorial service to celebrate Steve's life will be held at a future date. All friends are welcomed to remember Steve's contributions to the Warren community and to the many stories there are to share about his adventures.
The family expresses its appreciation to Steve Dickinson of Rumford for the constancy of his friendship to Steve and for his many forms of assistance to the family in past weeks. Donations in Steve's memory may be made to benefit the work of local animal shelters.
