Robert “Bob” McMahon Chambers Sr., 80, of Bethany, WV, passed away at 1:31 PM on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at Weirton Medical Center, Weirton, WV.

Bob was born on January 11, 1939 in Wheeling, WV. He was the son of the late A. L. Chambers and Agnes Ellen (McMahon) Chambers.

Bob was a 1956 graduate of Bethany High School, attended Bethany College and was a member of Bethany Memorial Church. He served two years (1963-1965) in the U.S. Army stationed in Munich, Germany, with the 508th and 793rd M.P. Battalions. Bob loved the land and his farm, operating a dairy farm for 20 years with his brother and two sons. As a strict conservationist, he served on the Northern Panhandle Soil Conservation District Board for several years. Bob had a life-long association with the Chambers General Store in Bethany opened by his grandfather in 1917. Through the years, Bob worked with his father, mother and brothers in all capacities from stock boy to repairman and meat cutter. In 1992, he became owner-operator with Charlotte. After many years of hard work and pleasure, in 2014 the reins were graciously handed to Harry and Beverly. Even though “retired”, Bob could still always be found fixing something, waiting on a customer or visiting with a friend.

In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his two brothers, William and David Chambers.

Bob is survived by his wife of 58 years, Charlotte Ann (Myers) Chambers, two sons, Robert McMahon Chambers Jr., and his wife, Melissa and Harry Lemont Chambers and his wife, Beverly, four grandsons, Robert M. Chambers III and his wife, Lindsey, Garret H. Chambers and his wife, Lexie, Austin P. Chambers and Talon A. Chambers, a great granddaughter, Caroline Elizabeth Chambers, four nieces and three great nephews.

A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family with arrangements entrusted to the care of the Chambers Funeral Home, Wellsburg, WV (304)737-3551.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to the Bethany Community Recreation Association at PO Box 106, Bethany, WV 26032.

My name is Bill Conner. Bob’s aunt called me Bill Conn Bob, myself, and jack Hoffman were neighbors. We had lots of fun together. I remember helping Bob build his cabin beyond his house. Bob enjoyed working with his hands and was always doing projects himself. Although I moved away, I have many fond memories of my times with Bob. My sincere condolences to his wife and family.

Have enjoyed Bob's smiling face and very intelligent conversation and advice for years as I used to come into the store every day. I'm sure many of us in the Bethany community and so many who have graduated through the years feel exactly the same.
