He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather.
He attended Washington Avenue Baptist Church and was a longtime barber in Cleveland. He joined Tennessee Enamel Co. in Cleveland on Oct. 16, 1939, and retired from Maytag Cooking Products 66 years later at the age of 82 ½ years. This is probably a record that will never be broken.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Dewey and Mattie Blackwell Gamble.
Survivors include his wife, Catherine Gamble; son, John Gamble and wife, Pansy, all of Cleveland; grandsons: Shaw Gamble and Jackson Gamble; sisters: Florence Dorger of Covington, Ky., and Gladys Chambers of Charleston, S.C.; and several nieces and nephews.
The funeral will be held at 7 p.m. today, Nov. 20, 2012, in the chapel of Fike Funeral Home with Dr. Jay McCluskey officiating.
Interment will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. in Sunset Memorial Gardens.
The service will conclude with a white dove release ceremony.
The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. today at the funeral home.
