Carl Gamble, 65, of East Mount Airy, brother of famed Philadelphia music producer Kenny Gamble, died Sunday, Aug. 26, at his home after a long battle with cancer.
Mr. Gamble worked as head of security for his brother's label, Philadelphia International Records, and wrote several songs, including "We All Got a Mission" and "False Faces" for the singer Billy Paul.
Known as "Beans," Mr. Gamble was described by his family as a great teller of jokes and stories.
"He was my brother, my friend, and he will really be missed," said Kenny Gamble, founder of Universal Cos., a community activist organization. "That was my main man there."
