Survivors include two sons: Brian Ambrose, of Simpsonville, S.C. and Tom Ambrose and wife Karen, of Kenly, N.C.; a daughter, Diane Broughton and husband Joe, of Ashland; four grandchildren: Amanda Broughton, Kari Broughton, Rebekah Ambrose and Ryan Ambrose; two great-grandchildren due any day, Wyatt and Knox; and a special pet “Marie” who kept him company for 10 years.
