I think you mean Raspbian (Buster).  You have many other, non-systemd(umb)
OS options for the RasPi.

Just delete the gpsd service files.

Many do it, I'm not a systemd(umber) user, so I'll leave that answer for
others.  Also, no need to stop it, a reboot does that by default.  Or:
    killall gpsd

Does one really need a bunch of config files to do killall??

That is the win, NO config files needed!  I never use any config files for

On Gentoo all it takes is these two files:

    /usr/local/bin/gpsd -nG /dev/ttyS0

    killall gpsd

I hope some systemd(reck) person has some guidance, but it is so hard
to use that few know how to use it.  Thus the systemd(ung) problems
that plague you, and others.
