It is with great sadness that the family of Dr Kenneth Chambler known as Bop by the family announces his passing after a brief illness, on June 2nd, 2021 at the age of 93.

Bop passed away peacefully at a hospital in Eastbourne, East Sussex, UK and will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 68 years, Marion, his sons Jonathan and Andrew, his grandchildren, Duncan, Jennifer, James, Edward, Livvie, Millie, Ruben and his great-grandchildren Beatrix and Romilly.

Bop had a long medical career which first took him to Galveston to study the treatment of burns in 1960 and then he settled as a Surgeon/General Practitioner in Alvin. He served the town from 1962 to 1975 returning to England to be a GP in the town of Heathfield, Sussex until he retired in 1992. To his credit apart from the people he helped and loved he published his findings of tissue typing of skin to help severely burned patients and was awarded a master’s degree in surgery.

Bop’s funeral service will be held at St Bartholomew’s Church, Heathfield, East Sussex, UK on Friday 2nd July 2021. All are welcome to send their thoughts to and they will be communicated to the family.

I was sadden to hear of Dr. Chambler's passing.

I knew him when he practiced in Alvin. He was a friend and I appreciated the Chambler's hospitality when I was studying in England and then visiting when I was working in Saudi Arabia.

He was a man of many talents, a great doctor, and a great person.
