Christopher John Gambaccini, 46, returned to his heavenly home on April 04, 2018. His devotion to his family and his love for everyone around him will be the way we will remember him.


Chris was born to John and Carol Gambaccini, Akron, Ohio on February 5, 1972. He was actively involved in his Catholic community, Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, which supported and loved he and his family for many years. He was a Kent State University alumnus with a degree in Accounting, which carried him through his many successful years as a CPA and partner at McManus, Dosen & Co. His participation as a coach for his children’s sports teams was his favorite hobby and something he poured his time and heart into daily.


Chris was incredibly blessed with a large and loving family. He married his best friend and partner in crime, Susie, June 14, 1997. Chris was a wonderful father and nurturer to his four children showing them patience, discipline, and humility. He truly understood the meaning of family, and we are all blessed and better off having known him.


Chris was a big kid at heart. He was reliable, helpful, and always had a witty line to drop into any conversation. He always made time to answer any question or help with any problem no matter how big or small. He is missed dearly by his loved ones who celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his Creator.


Chris is survived by his wife Susie; his children Mia, Tyler, Gavin, and Leah; his parents, John and Carol; his brothers, Ed (Kristin) and Steve (Sheila); his sister, Tricia (Matt); his grandmother, Millie Gambaccini; and many wonderful aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ralph and Anna Gault; and Carl Gambaccini.


The family will welcome loved ones and friends at Hilliard-Rospert Funeral Home, Wadsworth, on Sunday April 8 from 2pm-6pm. The funeral mass will be held at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, Wadsworth, on Monday, April 9 at 11am and burial will immediately follow.


In lieu of flowers, the Gambaccini family would appreciate donations sent in the name of Chris Gambaccini to Sacred Heart of Jesus School.
