Judge Gamble left admirable legacy

Judge Arthur E. Gamble's recent death, caused by the insidious Parkinson's disease, diminished the city of Greenville and the nation as a whole.

Judge Gamble was a man of great stature as well as statute. He was of "The Greatest Generation." Like so many, he interrupted his life to voluntarily defend his country as a Navy pilot. He returned to Greenville to fulfill a stellar career as a lawyer and later a judge.

He barely survived a dastardly and cowardly attempt to assassinate him with an explosive device under his car during the turbulent days of civil rights voter registration.

Parkinson's reduced his body and his strength, but it cannot remove the memory of a towering, handsome man of superior character with beautiful silver hair. He was every bit the image he presented.

Bub Gamble was a genuine, unassuming human, who loved his family, friends and the greater community, and in return he reaped their undying love and respect.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have known such a fine gentleman and to remain friends with his loving wife of 60 years, Bobbie, and family.

His memorial service was a celebration of a life well lived, a legacy fulfilled and for a person who loved, and was unfailingly loved in return. We know he is resting in peace, as can his family. They can rest assured the angels were sent to escort him. He once again flies high.
