J.P. “Chuck” Chambers, 62, of Roan Mountain, Tenn., passed away on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, at his home. Chuck was born in Elizabethton, Tenn., to the late Ward and Lena (McClellan) Chambers. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three sisters, Delie Stevens, Rosie Birchfield and Nannie Miller, and four brothers, Ray Chambers, Gene Chambers, Lonnie Chambers and Earl Chambers.
Chuck was one of a kind! He was a funny man and was “one of the good ones!”
Chuck retired from logging and was of the Free Wil Baptist faith. He enjoyed ginseng hunting, turkey hunting, riding his motorcycle and four wheelers and anything outdoors. Most of all he loved his grandchildren and his family.
Those left to cherish his memory include his children, Jim Chambers (Brooke Quillen of Roan Mountain, Ashle Chambers (Chris Younce) of Johnson City and Tony Chambers (Hunter McKinney) of Roan Mountain; his grandchildren, Steven Rost, Jacob Rost, Dominic Chambers, Noah McKinney, Stevie Thomas and Fiona Kerr; his brothers, James Chambers and June Chambers (Donna), all of Roan Mountain; and his sisters, Betty Chambers and Bonnie Arnett (Lester), all of Roan Mountain. Several nieces and nephews also survive. He also had a great friend, D.L. Whitehead, that he enjoyed spending time with.
The family will have a private burial at their property at a later date.
We would like to thank J.R. Arnett, Joey Guinn, D.L. Whitehead, Shane Younce and everyone else who has helped our family during this difficult time. Words of comfort can be sent to the Chambers family through our website, www.tetrickfuneralhome.com.
