Memories Timeline


  1. I am saddened to learn that you all have lost your father. I honestly did not know him personally, but I knew of him, and knew he was much beloved. His obituary in the Pueblo Chieftain was a nice tribute and a testament of his character and who he really was.
    I often think of the Chambers’ clan and how special each of you were — I taught English when you attended EHS. I enclose my sincerest sympathies and big hugs. Carol (Danielson) Wheeler

  2. Doc helped coach my high school softball team to two back-to-back state championships–words cannot express how wonderful he was! Thanks for sharing him.

  3. Chambers Family,
    We were shocked to read about Al and are so sorry for your loss. He was such a wonderful, generous and devoted man. He touched so many lives during his lifetime through his church, love for softball and dental practice. He welcomed everyone with his brilliant smile and friendly manner. He was well respected by his colleagues and patients being loved by all of them and all of you. He will be missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to have known him. We are thinking about all of you and keeping you in our prayers at this sad time.
    With sincere sympathy,
    Gordon and Helen Murley Pueblo,CO

  4. My thoughts are with you. Dr. Chambers was my dentist since I was a teenager and he was great. It was hard to lose him to have him retire. He would come to ballet performances and sit in the front and wave at the girls. I will miss him as a person even though I haven;t seen him much since he retired

  5. My first ever dentist. What a blessing to have known him. My children loved him too. Better world with him in it. R.I.P. My family offers our deepest sympathy to a great man. Love and respect. Marlene and family.
