Robert Dee Chambers, 65, passed away unexpectedly on May 24, 2011 in Mazatlan, Mexico. Robert was born June 19, 1945 in Salina, Kansas, to Burton Orton and Helen (Salisbury) Cham-bers. He was a Bountiful High School graduate and served an LDS mission to Toronto, Canada. He served his country in the naval forces and worked for Utah Power & Light for many years. He married Jan Widdison; they later divorced, and he married Jacquelyn Nitzel. Robert and Jackie then retired to Mazatlan, where they built their beautifully landscaped home together. Robert could do anything and everything using his many talents. One of his accomplishments was opening the first Baskin-Robbins franchise in Sandy, Utah. He was a wonderful big brother to four siblings, Carolyn (Brent) Blundell, Eugene (Judy) Chambers, Marilyn (Daniel) Shaffer and Patricia (John) Reese. Robert loved his five children: Darren, D’nita, Courtland, Beckett Carbone, and Serenity Herring. A favorite memory that the children have with their father is going to movies followed by a trip to Peter Piper Pizza for a large pizza topped with pineapple. Robert also has five stepchildren: Julie Corneilson, Jim, Roger, Kevin and David Nitzel. At the time of his death, Robert had nine grandchildren: Tess, Hannah, Alexander, Liam, Sariah, Archibald, Elizabeth, Caleb and Ada; 15 step-grandchildren and four step-great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Burton and Helen Chambers and granddaughter Elizabeth Carbone.
A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.
