GAMBLE, James Robert Harry, 50, passed away Sunday June 2, 2019 due to surgical complications at University of Cincinnati Hospital. James was born on May 5,1969 in Honolulu, Hawaii to Gary L. (deceased, 1998) and Sheila Joyce Gamble. James is now survived by his devoted and loving mother Sheila and sister Tara (Jeff) Stephan; beautiful niece and light of his life Lily Bihl “Sweet Pea”; aunts Bobette (Gary) Moore and Candy Garland (Ken); uncle Steven (Susie) Moore; cousins Athena, and Jimmy Baldridge, Raquel Viele, Jason Booker, Nicolle Moore, along with their children and numerous cousins and last but not least the 2 cats that he loved dearly, Festus and Mama. James is preceded in death by his very special cat, Tuesday.

James was a 1988 graduate of Waterford High School in Connecticut and attended Sinclair Community College in Dayton. James previously was employed at Ponderosa in Englewood and Airway Shopping Center. James had a passion for trains of all sizes and loved riding and watching them. He long had hopes of becoming a meteorologist once he had recovered fully from his surgery. James was a proud member of Aldersgate United Methodist Church where he served as lead usher, as well serving on the Trustee Committee.

Blessings to you all,

James has his new mission, and that is spreading love and joy in Heaven and to watch over all of us he left behind. I know James was welcomed with open arms upon his arrival at our Lord's mansion,

I have fond memories of James living with me near Detroit for a while and working with me. My trips to Laura OH and swimming and shooting the rifle in the woods at targets. I think it was with James when I visited Wright Patterson Air Museum as I recall he was well knowledgeable with things on display there. And our group ride going through the drive-thru window at McDonald's about 5 or 6 times in a row and all laughing and having a grand ole time. Present were Gary Sheila Tara James myself and perhaps Jimmy.
