James Lee Chambers

September 17, 1944 - September 06, 2018

James Lee Chambers, 73, of Norman passed away September 6, 2018 at his home.
He was born September 17, 1944 in Carlsbad, NM to James Newton and Irma Chambers. On November 12, 1977 he married Jane Curry in Oklahoma City.
Jim led a very happy, busy life and loved to tell jokes - he felt there was no bad joke like a dad joke. He loved to travel, and went on many cruises and road-trips with his family. During his thirty years as a railroad Signalman, he was known for being highly organized, and continued to be even in retirement - much to the delight of his beloved wife. He was an exceptional pool player and even earned his first date with Jane with his skills. His family saw him as an Animal Whisperer who could speak to any type of animal, from a dog to an opossum. Most of all he loved his family and was a very proud husband and father.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughter: Rebecca Chambers of McKinney, TX; siblings: Diane and husband Ron Tucker of Norman, Nancy and husband Chris Lange of Oklahoma City, OK.; seven nieces and nephews; one grand-dog: Louie.
He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; brother: Michael Lynn Chambers and loyal companion Bruiser.
A celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday September 19, 2018 at McFarlin Memorial United Methodist Church. Pastor Devon Krauss will officiate.

Jim always had a friendly word for his neighbors as they passed by his mailbox,
was always faithful to fly the American flag and the Sooner flag on game day.
Rest in peace reunited with Bruiser&Jane;.
Our sincere condolences go out to Becca and family.
