I cannot provide you with an obituary, but will information from his death certificate help? His death certificate has James Chrisopher Gibsona and Emily Walker as his parents. His full name is Johnnie Holbert Gipson. He was born 11 June 1874 and he died 17 May 1941. He is buried in Turkey, Hall County, Texas.
I did find an obituary for his son, Harold Norman Gipson. A picture is included in the obituary. Here is the URL:http://www.lubbockonline.com/stories/051607/obi_051607047.sh...

From one of your queries I know you are familiar with the Hill family. On Mattie Gipson's death certificate it has her father as Albert Malone Hill and her mother as Emma Barbour. I noticed in one of your queries that you had Andrew Malone Hill.
Other children of John Holbert Gipson and Mattie Hill were Evelin Lewise Gipson who as born 1 Sept 1918 in Estelline and died 9 December 1918 in Estelline, Hall County.
Mary Emily Gipson Hall, born 2 Sepember 1869 in Tennessee and died 19 Jan 1923 in Spur, Dickens, Texas.
I also found the James C Gibson family on the 1880 census of Young County, Texas.
Mrs Lorene Parker signed the death certificate of Mattie Gipson.
Emily Lorene Gipson married Earl Clifford Parker. They had Emily Earlene, Ronald Lee, and Myra Evelyn.
I'm sure you have a lot of information.
