Herb was born in Alamosa, Colorado on February 22, 1944, to James Edward and Elaine V. (Garrett) Gamble. As a teenager the family moved to Olustee where he graduated high school.

In 2008, he returned to Olustee where he lived until his death. Herb was an avid fisherman, enjoyed playing pool and loved his grandchildren immensely.

Preceded in death by his parents and his wife, Herb is survived by five children, Grace Suzanne Gamble, Kelly Ann Gamble, Suzannah Miranda Gamble, James Edward Gamble, all of Pennsylvania and Amanda Elaine Gamble of Olustee; two grandchildren, Harley James Davalos-Gamble and Cyrenity Gamble-Csizmadia along with many other relatives and friends.
