Chris Gambaccini 1972 - 2018

Christopher J. Gambaccini, CPA 

We are deeply saddened to have to tell you that our partner, our friend, and a real leader here at MD&Co, Chris Gambaccini, passed away unexpectedly on April 4, 2018.

Chris was not only an exceptional accountant, auditor, and tax preparer, but also – and more importantly – a great, great guy. In the 17 years that he was with us we never knew a client or staff member to say differently. He was one of the hardest workers and straightest shooters – really an example to us all on both a professional and personal level. He leaves a huge hole behind.

From a business perspective, life will go on; it must go on. It has been difficult for us here at the Firm and we recognize that you, our clients, expect certain things from us and we will deliver. We do, however, ask for your understanding and patience as we work our way through this tragedy.


Christopher John Gambaccini, 46, returned to his heavenly home on April 4, 2018. His devotion to his family and his love for everyone around him will be the way we will remember him.

Chris was born to John and Carol Gambaccini, Akron, Ohio. He was actively involved in his Catholic community, Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, which supported and loved he and his family for many years. He was a Kent State University alumnus with a degree in Accounting, which carried him through his many successful years as a CPA and partner at McManus, Dosen & Co. His participation as a coach for his children’s sports teams was his favorite hobby and something he poured his time and heart into daily.

Chris was incredibly blessed with a large and loving family. He married his best friend and partner in crime, Susie. Chris was a wonderful father and nurturer to his four children showing them patience, discipline, and humility. He truly understood the meaning of family, and we are all blessed and better off having known him.

Chris was a big kid at heart. He was reliable, helpful, and always had a witty line to drop into any conversation. He always made time to answer any question or help with any problem no matter how big or small. He is missed dearly by his loved ones who celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his Creator.
