Raymond Bruce Gambill died December 16, 2019 of melanoma. He was born April 22, 1950 in Abilene, TX to Dr. Raymond Carroll Gambill and Mary Wells Gambill.

Bruce was also a tennis teaching pro who taught for many years, most recently at Al Kruse Tennis Center in Corpus Christi. In addition to singer-songwriter and tennis pro, he was also an accomplished potter whose work was beautifully crafted. Bruce Gambill touched so many with his talents and his gentle nature, and he will be greatly missed by countless friends.
