Wayne Edwin Cambra died Feb. 22, 2017.

He was born July 3, 1954, in Inglewood, Calif., the oldest of three sons born to Edwin and Mary Cambra. He was born with a hearing impairment which drove him to prove that he was as or more capable than his peers in any endeavor he pursued.

He held many jobs in his youth, including paper routes, selling Christmas cards and being a grocery clerk. He attended Bishop Montgomery High School where he participated in baseball, water polo, surfing and music. He did so well at water polo he earned a scholarship to California State Polytechnic University of Pomona. He later connected with his true passion, animal science, and switched his efforts into rodeo and running the beef unit for the college. During this time he met and married Gail Marie Ganschow.

They began their family while moving up the West Coast working at different ranches. In Washington he initially worked for a farming supply store and raised cattle, chickens, and his children while starting his own livestock business, Cambra Livestock Services.

He is survived by his wife Gail; sons Jason (Christine), Justin (Cindy), Joshua (Emily) and Jordan (Lauren); brothers Allen (Nancy) and Brian (Sue); and four grandchildren.

A funeral service took place Saturday, Feb. 25, at St. Barbara Catholic Church in Black Diamond. Burial followed at Enumclaw Evergreen Memorial Park.
