DAVID CHAMBERS Boulder City lost one of its most beloved characters June 27, 2019. David Chambers was born May 8, 1955, in St. Louis, MO. He died peacefully after a long struggle with heart failure. His loving heart, however, never failed friends and family. He was kind and generous with everyone. Many people knew David as the amputee who "walked" his dog in a wheelchair along Nevada Way to Frank Crowe Park where he visited with friends, both human and canine. One of David's favorite t-shirts read, "Heaven is where all the pets you have ever loved come running to greet you." He is survived by his beloved dog, Roscoe. After finishing high school in St. Louis, David received certification in heating and air conditioning repair. In the early 1980's he moved to southern Nevada where he continued a career that included work as maintenance engineer. David was fond of saying he lived a colorful life, and indeed he did. He lost his leg in a freak accident that almost took his life. David was born in St. Louis to Robert and Eunice Chambers. He is survived by his sisters, Connie Clark of Ft. Myers, Fla., and Margaret Kolar of Boulder City; and his grand-niece, Courtney Causey of Boulder City. On Saturday, August 3rd at 11 a.m., David's family will be hosting a picnic celebrating David's life in Frank Crowe Park. Friends are invited to enjoy a picnic lunch and share a story about David. For more information, please call his sister, Margaret, at 702-738-8338.
