S Brian Chambers, a loving husband, devoted father, grandfather, and caring friend, passed away peacefully on December 11th, 2023 of causes brought on by age and the effects of Alzheimer’s disease.
Brian was born on May 17, 1940, in Smithfield, Utah to Seth Jay and Leone Cantwell Chambers. He met Jacqueline Alston of Salt Lake City on the campus of Utah State University. Both were pursuing degrees in the education field; it was a match made in heaven. They were married on December 21st, 1966 in the Logan Temple. His love for Jacqueline was priceless. Always concerned about her feelings and well-being, as well as those of his children whom he adored.
Brian’s first teaching job was at Sky View High School, a place he came to love and spent many years of his life. He was an excellent social studies teacher and instilled the love of learning in those he taught. After teaching for several years, he moved into administration and had the privilege of being the Principal to each of his five kids. First at Sky View, then at Cedar Ridge Middle School.
In 2001, Brian retired from administration, but that didn’t stop his desire to be involved. After retirement, he helped oversee student-teachers from Utah State University and also had the wonderful opportunity of serving on the Cache County Council. He had a deep love for the community and always strived to make the world a better place in everything he did.
Brian had such a good way of connecting with people all throughout his life. He was always the life of the party and so fun to be with. Sadly, the last few years have robbed him of life as he knew it. He leaves behind a legacy of laughter and love.
Brian had a deep love for our Savior, Jesus Christ. He served a mission in the Central Atlantic States Mission. He was a spiritual, caring disciple of our Heavenly Father and held several church callings. He especially loved his time as Bishop of a YSA ward in the old “Gold Toaster” building, again fostering relationships that extended over time. Brian and Jacque enjoyed serving a church service mission at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Brian was an avid Aggie fan and supported many high school sports. Somehow, he always found a good balance of incorporating both sports and music into his family life, attending many concerts and musical productions throughout the years. He had a great sense of humor and was known and loved by many. He will be greatly missed.
As a family, we thank the staff at The Gables of North Logan for the care they provided Brian prior to his passing, and Atlas Hospice this past year. We also express appreciation for the numerous acts of kindness the family has received from others.
Brian is survived by his wife, Jacqueline Alston Chambers, one brother, Robert (Helen) Chambers of Smithfield and four of his five children. Jill (Scott) Jensen, Ann (Brad) Johnson, Robert, and Maria (Kade) Moncur. 14 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, one sister (Rebecca) and one son (John).
