Although I never met him, Gamble Rogers and Roger Gambill used to leave notes for each other backstage at venues. For a while it seemed as though we would miss seeing him by mere days. Both men were consummate story tellers. Both men's lives ended way too soon.
Gamble Rogers died as a hero, giving up his life trying to save the life of another man. I think of him every time I drive past the sign for "Gamble Rogers Memorial Recreation Area" at Flagler Beach, FL, where he lost his life.
