Warren Lee Chambers, 79, of Baldwin City, Kansas passed away Wednesday, October 27, 2021, at the Olathe Medical Center in Olathe, KS.
One of twelve children, Warren was born October 11, 1942 in Ottawa, KS, the son of Clyde Jacob Chambers and Eva Marie (Whitaker) Chambers. He grew up in Franklin County graduating from Pomona High School in 1960.
After high school, he proudly served his country in the United States Navy for three years until his honorable discharge in 1963.
Warren worked for several gas companies during his career including Skelgas where he was a manager, but he enjoyed being out of the office doing deliveries and service calls. He attended Lighthouse Baptist Church, Baldwin City and was a member of Greenwood Baptist Church, Pomona, KS.
He enjoyed fishing and coon hunting as well as woodworking and gardening. He loved country music, the Kansas City Chiefs, and card games, especially Pitch which gave Warren many opportunities to smirk. A hardened exterior concealed a teddy-bear of a man who cared deeply for his family and his savior, Jesus Christ.
On November 28, 1968, Warren was united in marriage to Alice Raby in Camdenton, Missouri. They shared over fifty-one years of marriage until Alice’s passing on May 29, 2020. They enjoyed hosting huge family dinners every third Sunday of the month for years.
He was also preceded in death by seven brothers, Keith Chambers, Don Chambers, Norman Chambers, Gail Chambers, Bob Chambers, Wayne Chambers, and Virgil Chambers; two sisters, Marge Kitts and Evelyn Martin; and two stepmothers, Anita Chambers and Ethel Chambers.
Warren is survived by two sons, Keith Chambers and his wife, Teresa, of Waverly, KS, and Chad Chambers and his wife, Allison, of Baldwin City, KS; a daughter, Jodi Brager and her husband, Tom, of St. Joseph, MO; eight grandchildren, Zane and Zoe Chambers of Baldwin City, Jerry Johnson of Ottawa, Cody Chambers of Olathe, Chelsea Chambers of Waverly, Cortney Gonzalez of Phoenix, Arizona, Aaron Brager of St. Joseph, and Courtney Burton of St. Joseph; many great grandchildren; two sisters, Kay Masengale and Jean Clark, both of Ottawa; and numerous nieces and nephews.
