Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to Sue Ellen and the Kambach Family. I will miss his dry,witty sometimes sarcastic sense of humor, especially when he would come to the Pine Ridge tennis courts to watch the "guys" play tennis. I called him,"coach" when he would offer his opinions on how to hit a tennis ball. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

What a wonderful friend and coworker. Never met anyone who loved his wife and kids more.

It is hard to lose someone we love, especially when it is so unexpected. And then, time passes and you realize they are with you all the time, they live in your heart and that is when all the shared moments become treasures. My deepest sympathies to Suellen and all family members, may his memories carry you through this time of loss
