It is with great sadness that the family of Harry Bradford Gamble, Jr. announces his passing after a battle with cancer, on July 6, 2017, at age 68.  Harry was surrounded by his family at his home in Emmitsburg, MD.

Harry was born on February 15, 1949 in North East, MD, the son of the late Harry and Dorothy (Lum) Gamble, Sr.  After graduating from North East High School, Harry attended the University of Maryland – College Park, earning a degree in business.  Harry was the beloved husband of Nancy (Walke) Gamble; loving father to Elizabeth (Todd) Outten, Anne (Greg) Brown, and Caroline (Jared) McDermott; and adoring Pop Pop to Harry and George Brown, Charlotte McDermott, and granddaughter Outten, expected in December.  Harry is survived by his sisters Linda Ingerson, Marietta (Bob) Beal, and Shirley Hawkins and brother Ronnie Gamble, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Harry worked for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for 36 years and was a nationally recognized expert in the field.  After retirement, he continued to work in the industry with his friends at Neil Hoosier & Associates.  Harry was a great outdoorsman who had a passion for hunting deer and water fowl as well as foxhunting and also enjoyed making hay on his farm.

Harry had a larger than life personality and sense of adventure, which drew many friends and stories.  He took advantage of every moment of every day and took pleasure in the simple things in life.  He will be missed by many, especially his family, who mattered most to him.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday July 11, 2017 at 5:00 pm at Eyler’s Valley Chapel, at 7504 Hampton Valley Road, Emmitsburg, MD, with funeral celebrant John C.
