William F. Hambleton, Longtime Gloucester City Real Estate and Insurance Broker (February 20, 1927 – December 21, 2012)

WILLIAM F. HAMBLETON (January 3) February 20, 1927 – December 21, 2012. William died peacefully on Friday, December 21, 2012, in Elkton, MD, at the age of 85. In his own words, he departed this Earth, longing for very little that he had not experienced. His wife and only true
love, the late Helen Louise Anderson, along with his children, grandchildren and great- Screen Shot 2022-06-11 at 20.56.19grandchildren, were the centers of his life. A daughter, Gail Jeral, survives him, and husband Gary of Elkton, MD, son Mark Hambleton and wife Lisa of Hillsborough, NC; grandchildren Shannon Noon and husband Michael of Oaklyn; Jessica Magee of Philadelphia, PA; Shawn Jeral of New Orleans, LA, Rebecca and Jennifer Hambleton of Boone, NC., and great-grandchildren Ella and Lila Noon.

He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force from 1944-47; graduated from Temple University BA in Business Administration; and was a Real Estate and Insurance Broker, Rotarian, and community leader in Gloucester City from 1950-2003. He retired to Cecil County, MD, and also maintained residences in Avalon, NJ, and Plymouth, VT, for many years, where he and his beloved wife Helen enjoyed hosting family and friends. An avid skier, he skied over 75 mountains in the United States, Canada, and Europe, and with Helen, enjoyed travel to North America, England, Spain, Morocco, Greece, and Egypt.

William’s wishes were that his passing is recognized in a simple manner, with family and friends gathering privately for fellowship and to share a meal and celebrate life, rather than mourn his departure. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Gloucester City Little League, P.O. Box 183, Gloucester City, NJ 08030.
