1970 - 2018 Obituary Condolences

September 19, 1970 - September 9, 2018

Jason was born in Huntington Beach, CA and adopted at birth, along with his twin brother Joshua, by Laverne and Ralph Gambin. He was the youngest of five boys.
Jason attended Eureka High School where he participated in the Naval Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (N.J.R.O.T.C) and successfully completed three years of study in naval subjects.
As a young man, Jason worked as a cook and shift leader in several restaurants. In college, he studied heavy equipment operation, auto repair, welding and drafting. He went on to work as a mechanic, machinist, welder and forklift operator. He worked for seven years at Eco Frost refrigeration company. He later spent a year helping his mother as her full-time caregiver.
One of Jason's favorite activities was horseback riding. He also loved to read science fiction and fantasy novels, and was rarely seen without a book in one hand and his signature long-stem pipe in the other. As a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, he participated in renaissance era reenactments. He also participated in Civil War, WWI and WWII reenactments. Among his prized possessions were an authentic musket and a complete set of armor. Jason also had a passion for online-gaming and enjoyed connecting with players around the world.
Jason was a devoted family member and was appreciated for his gentle manner, generous shoulder rubs and big bear hugs.
Jason will be missed by his brothers John Gambin, Ralph Gambin, Joshua Gambin and Rycharde Gambin; nieces Jennifer Bucholtz and Sara Gambina-Belknap; nephews Troy Gambin, Ben Gambin, Daniel Gambin, and Max Gambin; and his uncle, James Gaasch. Jason will also be fondly remembered by numerous extended family members and friends.
