Robert Michael Gambino, age 43, of Burlington, NC, passed away on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. He was born in Gulfport, Mississippi on Jan. 11, 1977 to Becky and Mike Gambino of Jackson, Ohio.

Michael attended  Elon University near Burlington, NC where he settled down after college. He was known as Mike or Bino or Gamby to his many friends at Piedmont Ale House where he worked for many years, serving up a smile and a drink without fail.

He was preceded in death by grandfather, Charles Mallock; grandmother, Kay Gambino; Uncle Tom Gambino and Uncle Jerry Gambino.

He is survived by mother, Becky Gambino; father, Mike Gambino; partner, Michelle Townsend; grandmother, Lois Mallock; Uncle Bill Mallock; Aunt Sylvia Myers; Aunt Marti Stover; Uncle Richard Gambino; Uncles Jim and Earl Goodman; many cousins and nieces; and his work family at Piedmont Ale House.

He was a sports fan — especially of the Philly Eagles and Rangers and the Yankees. He enjoyed swimming, fishing, playing video games and golf when time allowed.  But he enjoyed being with his partner Michelle and their dogs, Miss Piggi and Jersey, most of all.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Local arrangements are by the Mayhew-Brown Funeral Home, Jackson. Condolences may be sent to the family at: www.mayhew-brownfuneralhome.com.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to: Burlington Animal Services, 221 Stone Quarry Road, NC 27217.
