Alfred Jennings “Tom” Gamble
Alfred Jennings “Tom” Gamble went to his Lord and Savior on Friday, June 18, 2004. He was born June 26, 1916, in Jenny Lind to Harvey and Signora (Johnson) Gamble.
Tom grew up in Jenny Lind, where at the age of 10 he went to work in the coal mines as a pony boy. In 1937, he moved to Washington to work in the coal mines of Bellingham. In 1949, he was asked to go commercial fishing with his friend Hank Brandt. Tom found that he loved the sea, and never returned to the mines. Tom fished for everything from tuna to salmon, from the Bering Sea in Alaska to Guadaloupe Island off the coast of Mexico. Later he worked on the oil tankers and then as a mate for Foss Tug & Barge on its ocean-going towboats. In March 1968, an injury ended his working career, but not his enjoyment of life. He often said, “When you wake up, get up, and when you get up, do something.”
Tom was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Bellingham 2nd Ward. He was a great joy to all who knew him. After services, the children would run back to the last pew because they knew that Tom would be waiting with candy for them all.
God bless you and guide you home. We will miss you, Dad.
