Obituary for Robert George Chambers

December 11, 1924 - March 10, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 93


Robert "Bob" Chambers was born December 11, 1924 in San Antonio, Texas to Robert and Alice Duke Chambers, Sr. He went home to be with our Lord on March 10, 2018 at the age of 93. He is survived by his loving wife of 72 years Rena Merkin Chambers. He is also survived by his daughter Terry Herrmann and husband Ralph, son Chris and wife Cheryl; grandchildren Tiffany Jureczki and husband Jeff, Carie Bodnar and husband Chris, Shelley Nicolai and husband Robert, Micah Chambers and wife Sunim; great-grandchildren Atherton, Ty, Lyttie, Makenna, Shane, Asher, Ace, Jake, Nathan & baby Nicolai on the way.

Bob served in the Navy in WWII. He was a teacher/coach at Jefferson High School, Sam Houston High School, and Highlands High School, principal at Rogers Junior High and Jefferson High school, and superintendent in San Antonio ISD, Boerne ISD and Lackland ISD. He served in public education for over 42 years.

Papa's passion was his family whom he loved, adored and enjoyed spending time with. He was the grand patriarch of the Chambers' family due to his wisdom, integrity, devotion and love. His advice was sought out, not only by his immediate family, but also by his siblings (Margaret Truax, Mildred McCarley, Octavia Holman and A.B. Chambers), nieces & nephew, friends and grandchildren.

His love, sense of humor, stories, and wisdom will be missed.
