Gary Chambers Obituary

On March 8, 2024, surrounded by his family, Gary Clifford Chambers, husband, father, grandfather & great grandfather traded in his spurs for wings. He was 76. He was born to Cliff and Alice Chambers in November 1947 and he grew up in both Holland and Austin, MB with his 6 siblings.  In 1968, he married Rita Menard and they settled into life in Austin where they were blessed with two children, Todd and Michelle. In 1975 they bought their acreage east of Carberry, where they lived for 49 years.  Dad loved country life and took great pride in his yard and could often be found sitting under his favorite oak tree, waving at people going by. Over the years, he had many animals, including goats, sheep, chickens, horses, cows and even a beefalo.  Dad was a true cowboy and had his favorite horse Cochise for 30 years - riding him in parades and on trail rides in Sprucewoods Park were always highlights. He logged many miles on snowmobiles and quads over the years as well, especially in the Firdale hills - just another way he enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He worked at the potato plant in Carberry for over 40 years, where he was well known due to his love of people. He got great joy out of telling stories wherever he went.

He was blessed with four grandchildren: Kayla (Clayton) Dolding, Scott (Rhaelyn) Clement, Charlie Chambers & Kolby Chambers and two great grandchildren, Sage & Wyatt Clement. 

He was predeceased by his parents, Cliff & Alice, brother Rick, sister Gayle Ham, and nephew Chris Chambers.

In addition to his wife Rita, his children, Todd (Barb) Chambers, Michelle Clement (John), grandchildren & great grandchildren, he leaves to mourn his brother Merlin (Deb)Chambers, sister Darlene (Ken) North, brother Doug (Melody)Chambers, sister Joann (Grant)Calvert, brother-in law Paul Ham, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He left us all with a lifetime of wonderful memories.

‘In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, in our hearts we hold a place, that no one could ever fill’

‘Oh the last goodbyes are the hardest ones to say, this is where the cowboy rides away’

Following a family graveside service, a memorial tea will be held on Friday May 10, 2024 at 2pm at the Carberry United Church Hall to celebrate his life.
