Harry Reese Gamber, a high school dropout who became a successful businessman specializing in drywall and painting, died Sunday of pancreatic cancer at Gilchrist Hospice in Towson. The Owings Mills resident, who had lived in Catonsville for many years, was 85. The son of an auto mechanic and a homemaker, Harry Reese Gamber was born in a home in Westminster that is now Maggie's Restaurant. His great-grandfather, William Snyder Gamber, who was a Civil War veteran, served as postmaster from 1881 to 1903 of the Carroll County village that was named for him. In 1930, Mr. Gamber, who was known as Reese, was struck by an automobile that left him with serious nerve damage and a permanently injured right arm. Numerous hospitalizations left him behind in school, and when he was 13, he dropped out. Unable to enlist for the service because of his arm, Mr. Gamber worked for the Red Cross during World War II. From 1945 to 1948, he worked a variety of construction jobs, including driving a cement mixer for the Harry T. Campbell Co., and later rose to become a foreman.

Two people went to the hospital with minor injuries early Saturday after a party in a hall used by the Violetville Volunteer Fire Department got out of hand. Baltimore County Sgt. Benjamin Yohe said that the two incidents - a stabbing and a man who was struck by a car - weren't related. Police were called at 1:38 a.m. to 4000 Benson Ave. after a 25-year-old Baltimore man was cut in the neck. Six minutes later, Yohe said, another partygoer was hit by an Acura in front of the fire station.
