Stephen E. Tibbetts, age 74, husband of Nancy (Williams) Tibbetts passed away quickly and peacefully from a rare and aggressive form of cancer on August 26, 2020 at his home in Middleborough, Massachusetts surrounded by his family. 

Born in Quincy, Massachusetts to Eugene and Dorothy (Gray) Tibbetts, Steve was a 1964 graduate of North Quincy High School. 

In addition to working in credit and collections management with Briggs Engineering and Granite City Electric, Steve also enjoyed his driving days with Judco transporting special needs students. Steve was a proud US Army Vietnam veteran. 

Besides his family,  Steve’s other true love was antiquing. Finding that perfect piece was such a thrill for him. Steve was a sports enthusiast and cinema aficionado.  

Steve loved his family fiercely and prided himself in choosing just the right gift for just the right grandchild. 

Steve had fond memories of his years at Calvary Baptist Church in Hanson and First Baptist Church of Duxbury. He recently was a member of the Central Congregational Church in Middleborough. 

In addition to his wife Nancy, he is survived by his children Brenda Trotman and her husband John of Bridgewater, Stephen Tibbetts and his wife Jennifer of Carver, Beth Tibbetts and Darryl Guidetti, and David Tibbetts and his wife Alexis. He was the beloved Papa of 8 grandchildren: Amber, Andrew, Gemma, Sophia, Lily, Isabella, Russell, and Violet.  Steve was the beloved brother of Alice Bruton and George Tibbetts. He is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and friends. Steve’s love of family even extended to his beloved grand-dogger mastiffs Daisy and Louie.

I'm so very sorry to hear of Steve's passing. He was a great friend to my Dad, Wes, and I can see the two of them now talking about antique cars in heaven! My thoughts and prayers are with the family. God Bless you all.

Stephen understood this meaning very well----We can move many hills with starting with just a drop of faith. At times, this may seem difficult; however, slow and steady always brings us in time to the finish line. We may feel challenged and unprepared at times. That is when we put away our pride and the fear. That is when we give our faith, to his love, and feels his presence in understanding the miracle of everlasting life.

Nancy and "All in the family". Watching you "All" rally around Steve was a "wonderful" testament of how much he was loved by all!
Our hearts are heavy with sorrow and can't imagine how grieved your hearts are!
You are all in are thoughts and prayers. 2 Cor. 1:3,4

To the Tibbetts family-

The Army Corps of Engineers New England District joins me in expressing our sincerest condolences. Stephen J. Tibbetts is a valued member of our USACE family; many of the qualities mentioned in his father's obituary echo in Steve, which is why we consider ourselves lucky to have him as a colleague and friend. Assuming the adage of "like father, like son" rings true, you've experienced a great loss, and you have our deepest sympathies.

To a life well-lived and a job well-done, Mr. Tibbetts, we say ESSAYONS!

I want to express my sincere sorrow for Uncle Steve's passing. He was always fun to see at family picnics and bbqs. He was larger than life and always had a big smile on his face when we would visit. I know that he will be missed by his whole family.
