NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) – Neighbors say William Clyde Gibson was always willing to lend a hand, mowing lawns and helping with home repairs. Gibson's last known employer says he is shocked at how everything has unfolded.
For more than a year and half, David King says Gibson worked for him at his flooring company in southern Indiana. "It's just mind blowing," said King.
King says his father met Gibson at church. "He was 54 years old, I was giving him a chance, it's hard to find work out there so, I thought I was doing a good job," said King.
At first he was very impressed. He says Gibson worked incredibly hard and was always dependable, up until about two months ago when he had to let him go because he kept calling in sick.
