Gary Dean Chambless
Sunday, February 12th, 2023
Born August 22, 1950 died suddenly at home on February 12, 2023 in Bakersfield, California. He was the second son of King and Lois Chambless, who proceeded him in death. He leaves behind his loving wife of 44 years Sandy Chambless & son David Chambless, two brothers Noel Chambless living in Mississippi and Ryan & wife Brenda Chambless of Bakersfield, CA.
Gary attended South High School Class of 1968, then Bakersfield College, but left and went to work for his father at Cal Crete Block Plant where he worked until the business sold. He then became an insurance agent until God called him into the ministry, where Gary found his true calling. After serving under wonderful examples of godly men and women, God led him to his true church home under the guidance of a very anointed pastor and his wife Edward and Char Barger of the Rock Church on Norris Road. He was so very happy there serving God and all the people (sheep) there. He always said when he stood before God he wanted to smell like sheep, He had heard another pastor say that, and it touched his heart so deep.
At the end of his life the wonderful people of the Rock Church will tell you he reached his goal.
-He loved God with all of his heart. He was truly a wonderful man of God, fabulous husband and father. He will truly be missed more than words can say. If Gary was here with us today, he would tell you no one is promised tomorrow. It's time to get right with God.
