OBITUARY

James R. Ambo

August 2, 1933September 10, 2019

James R. Ambo, passed away on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at the age of 86. James was born on August 6, 1933 in St. Louis, Missouri to the late Joseph James Ambo and the late Jane Elizabeth Ambo (nee Gaoich). Jim was the loving brother of Betty J. Scharf who preceded him in death in 2012. Jim leaves his cousin Sharon Fischer and friend Michelle Foster and many others to cherish in his memory.

Jim proudly served his county during the Korean Conflict and was proud of his Military Service and in meeting so many people as a golf pro at different golf courses in the area. He really liked meeting famous golfing industry professionals over the years. During his career and after retirement he loved going to the driving range to teach all ages how to swing a golf club.

Jim enjoyed helping his neighbors with yard work, giving the mail man a soda & cupcake, watching the St Louis Cardinals play (late games got recorded and watched first thing the next morning), feeding the squirrels and birds every day and talking to anyone who would give him an ear.

I've known Jim for over 50 years. I first met him at a golf driving range off Lindbergh Blvd. Later Jim had a residence at the Golf Course on River Valley Drive near the small air port. I lived in River Bend Estates less than a mile from the Golf Course and would see and talk with Jim often during my daily walks looking for "stray" golf balls in the farm fields adjacent to the Golf Course. After I moved to Indiana in 2002, our friendship continued through annual Birthday Cards and Christmas Cards, and articles of interest that I sent to Jim monthly. Jim will be missed by many, he was a geat person.
