My deepest sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort in Jehovah God’s promise to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) Peace to you during this difficult time.
I have great memories of living close to your family though these many years. I was closer to Craig’s age, but spent a lot of time playing with Brenda and Sharla. Our families, along with the Davis’s went on vacations together. Bruce was always the life of the party. I don’t think I ever saw him angry or in a bad mood. He was always cracking joking and making others happy. I am so glad I had the chance to be around him, and feel of his influence in my life. Praying for your comfort, and the peace the Gospel brings. Love your wonderful family.
I just heard of this sad news. Bruce was my mission president in Anaheim, CA. I loved him, what a great man. He was an excellent president. He will be greatly missed.
April 15, 2020. I did not know Mr Chambers but I am very interested family history information regarding Catherine Redding who I believe was his great, great grandmother -#x ?? . She was a the oldest daughter of Dennis Redding who died in 1791. I would so appreciate it if one of the family of descendants would contact me. My late husband was descended from Dennis Redding- he was his 2x great grandfather. I am sorry to have to use this avenue to contact a family member. Thank you very much.

He was my mission president while I was a missionary in Anaheim California. He was a hard worker and very dedicated with a strong testimony. He was always willing to offer a priesthood blessing if needed. My condolences to the family.
Just saw this and am sad I missed this news. I love President Chambers! I served in Anaheim, CA with him and always felt that he loved me and we had a great relationship! I once ran into him at the Mesa Temple and it was a great reunion! Such wonderful memories of a great man!!!
