Robert Blaine Chambers

Feb. 14, 1958 – Feb. 24, 2022


Robert Blaine Chambers was born on Feb. 14, 1958 in San Diego to George and Trudi Chambers. He passed away at home on Feb. 24, 2022.  

Bob spent his childhood living in the San Diego area, graduating from Mission Bay High School in 1976 and from Point Loma Nazarene University in 1982. Bob played basketball for both Mission Bay and Point Loma and earned many honors.

At Point Loma he met Pat Murphy and they married in 1981, enjoying 40 years of marriage. After a brief time in the Navy, Bob and Pat settled in Pat’s hometown of La Crescenta. Together they had four children: Taylor Chambers, Kelsey Chambers (Welch), Riley Chambers (Dadzie) and Blaine Chambers, who died of SIDS in 1990.

Bob often forgot that La Crescenta was not his hometown. He loved this area and the community feel. He coached several of his children’s teams, was involved at La Crescenta Presbyterian Church and ultimately worked at the Center for Children.

Bob’s family and friends were his world. He loved his fairly new role as Grandpa to both Logan and Becca Chambers. He treasured playing golf each week with good friends and going on many adventures with special friends from church. Pat and Bob had a mission to visit every MLB ballpark and had visited 20 of them before Bob was diagnosed with cancer.

The Chambers family was famous for their detailed family road trips, many of which included dropping a child off to college. Did you ever see a tall man dressed all in orange with a tiger paw on his hat in and around La Crescenta? Then you saw Bob! He was a diehard Clemson and Dodger fan.

Bob was known for his smile and acts of service.

Services for Bob Chambers will be held at La Crescenta Presbyterian Church on April 9 at 11a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Bob Chambers Memorial Fund at the Center for Children, via La Crescenta Presbyterian Church. The church address is 2902 Montrose Ave., La Crescenta CA 91214 or charity of your choice.
