Van Hibberts, 65, had an opinion about what his community should become, and he was not afraid to share it. Acting in multiple volunteer leadership roles, he helped to bring that vision to life.
Hibberts died from a heart attack Nov. 5, leaving family, friends and colleagues to mourn. His death was announced by the Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce Monday.
Chamber president and CEO Chanda Ryan remembered Hibberts for his willingness to step up and serve.
