Information: Steve Gibbs returned to Key Largo in 1972 after teaching English and creative writing at Flagler College in St. Augustine and at Mount Ida College in Newton Centre, Mass. For the next 25 years he owned and operated Gibbsail, Inc. with sailing concessions at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. During that time, but not for the full 25 years, he owned and operated concessions at Holiday Isle Resort, the Marriott Bay Beach Resort and the Ocean Reef Club.
Along the way he married and helped raise three children, Hobie, Brynn and Holly. He is married to Jane Salvaggio and they have lived in Largo Sound Park since 1984.
In 1997 Gibbs became a writer for the Free Press and Key West Citizen newspapers, writing about the Key Largo and Islamorada communities. His beat covered schools, courts, law enforcement, the environment, features and almost every aspect of Keys' living. In his column he wrote about hiking the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp as well as kayaking the mangrove trails along the Keys.
He retired from the newspaper business in June, 2012 to pursue a position on the KLWTD Board of Directors and was elected in November.
