Celebration in Memory of Vince Gambino

The College of Education is sad to report that Vincent Gambino passed away on Wednesday, Dec. 21 at the age of 82.  Vince completed his undergraduate education in psychology at Roosevelt University and his doctoral program in counselor education at Northern Illinois University.  He began his career in the Department of Counselor Education at Roosevelt in September 1964 and he served with distinction on the Roosevelt faculty until he retired in August 1999 at which time he was awarded emeritus status.

Vincent loved teaching and his good work in the classroom touched the lives of countless Roosevelt students.  Many former students remained in contact with him long after he retired, seeking out his expert counsel and good advice.  He was a trusted and highly respected colleague and friend to all who knew him.  A very successful clinical psychologist, he continued his full-time practice until his death. 

He is preceded in death by his life partner, Robert N. Anderson.  He is survived by his brother George, numerous nephews, and his many good friends.  A celebration of Vince’s life will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 27 at The Oak Brook Drake at 2301 York Road, Oak Brook.   Memorials in his name may be made to an animal shelter of your choice.
