“Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.”
March 20, 1945 – October 12, 2017
A friend to Tibbits for many years, Erl Gleason demonstrated how the arts, theatre and music can be an integral part of our lives. He spent many years involved with Branch County Community Theatre and spent much time “on the boards” of the stage. Whether at Tibbits Opera House or the Sauk Theatre or in church, he performed, he acted, he sang, he shared his talents with those around him.
Erl served on the Board of Directors for Tibbits Opera Foundation & Arts Council from 2001 through 2012, first as representative of the BCCT and later as president of the board (2007-08).
We are grateful he chose to share time and talents with Tibbits Opera House and by extension the entire community.
