Apologies if this goes out to the wrong group, but wanted to update you that my father and your classmate, John Gamble, passed away this morning (July 29th) from complications from myeloma and end stage renal disease. He was a great father and fine soldier from what I've been told. I will cherish the time that we were able to spend with him recently at your 55th year reunion. We are extremely proud of him and his accomplishments, and will miss him greatly. Services are pending.

Please forward this to the appropriate individuals.

Regards,
Kevin Gamble (Son)
