Amburgey, Rev. James S. -65, technician, Baptist minister The Rev. James S. Amburgey tried to lead others to Jesus on the job and at the church, said his wife, Joan. Rev. Amburgey supported his family for 46 years as an electronics technician for Lucent Technology in Cincinnati.

"We did it because we really loved the Lord," she said Rev. Amburgey, of Erlanger, died Thursday at St. Elizabeth Medical Center South, Edgewood. He was 65. He was proudest of his work with the Beechgrove Baptist Church near Independence, which he turned from a struggling mission with about 10 members into a thriving congregation that paid off its debts before he retired. The Amburgeys' daughter, Rachel Amburgey Hall of Erlanger, played the organ at Beechgrove and later at the Madison Avenue Baptist Church in Covington, where her father served as an associate pastor. "We all just worked together as a team," Joan Amburgey said. "His goal in life was to witness to people and tell them about the Lord, so they'd be going to heaven." Rev. Amburgey was a deacon and preacher at Immanuel Baptist Church in Covington and also worked with Boone/Campbell/Kenton County Jailhouse Ministries. Other survivors include sisters, Hettie Combs of West Palm Beach, Fla., and Judy Wagoner of Bradenton, Fla.; and a grandson. Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Erlanger Baptist Church.
