Carl Daniel Gamble, Sr. was born on October 10, 1934 to the late Robert Daniel Gamble, Sr. and Eloise Washington in Brunswick, Georgia. He was educated in Glynn County and graduated from Risley High School in 1954. While attending Risley, Carl was captain of the basketball team. Upon graduation from high school, he briefly served in the U.S. Air Force with an honorable medical discharge. Carl then attended and studied electronics at Savannah State College, in Savannah, Georgia.
Carl moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 1959, where he furthered his education in electronics. While in Boston, he reunited with his high school sweetheart, Rose Forester. They were married on December 29, 1960.
Six years later, Carl relocated the family from Boston to Atlanta to live closer to their relatives in Georgia. While in Atlanta, he worked for Panasonic and also started a television repair business. Because of his love for family, Carl returned to Brunswick in 1971 to help care for his father. Upon his return, he owned and operated “Carl’s TV Service”, a successful used television sales and service business, for many years. Technological advances depleted the need for television repair, so in 1987, Carl joined the International Longshoreman Association (1423), where he was affectionately known as “The TV Man”, until his retirement in October 2000.
In 1968, Carl symbolized his dedication to Jehovah God by means of water baptism. As a loving husband and father, Carl gave tirelessly to his family by providing for them physically, emotionally, and more importantly - - spiritually. Carl was known for his even-keeled disposition in all situations. He often quoted scriptures in lieu of or in conjunction with punishment for his children. So not only did you disappoint him, you disappointed Jehovah God. His children fondly remember his favorite scriptures when administering discipline; “Let your “Yes” mean yes and your “No”, no”, and “...Live quietly and to mind your own business”.
Carl was a man of few words with a wonderful sense of humor. He was loved by both his family and the community.
Carl leaves behind to cherish his warm spirited memory, his loving wife, Rose, of 59 years, two daughters and two sons: Cheryl Elam (Steve); Riceboro, Georgia, Langston Gamble (Yvonne), Brunswick, Georgia; Carl Gamble, Jr. (Vanessa), Brunswick, Georgia; Kathyleen Wyatt (Steven), Newport News, Virginia: one brother, Robert Gamble (Carolyn), Houston, Texas: sister-in-law, Barbara Anderson, Brunswick, Georgia: 14 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and a hosts of nieces, nephews and other relatives.
