Jonny had been a resident of Knapp Lake since the age of six. Mr. Chambers attended West Noble Schools and was an exceptional wrestler while attending. He was a hardworking and very giving man. He was loved and trusted by many. Jonny enjoyed holidays with his family and children. Jonny was an avid fan of heavy metal, tattoos, and his long hair while he had it. He had a signature laugh and enjoyed making others share in the laughter.
Jonny took on the role willingly as a second father for many children throughout his lifetime. Some of his favorite times were simple evenings with (as he would say) ol’ lady and children enjoying a good meal and a movie. He often spent time working hard in the outdoors with his sons or cuddling with his daughters on the couch. Jonny was an exceptional friend and would be there whenever asked. He will be missed by many.
