It’s with a heavy heart I announce the passing of Rob Chamberlain age 52. Because of Rob's untimely and unexpected passing, he did not have a will, or funds set aside for final arrangements. The family is asking for donations to help pay for his funeral and burial. Any amount will help! Your prayers and support are very much appreciated. A fundraiser was established at A bit more about Rob: Rob was born in 1971 to his parents Al and Eileen in Glendale, California. He grew up in Emerald Isle Estates and attended St. Bede Elementary in La Canada, where he learned to play piano, football, and baseball, and was an altar server at church. Later in junior high, Rob learned to alpine snow ski, surf, golf, and skateboard. In 1983, when Rob was 12, his father Al passed away from cancer at the age of 48. This had a tremendous impact on Rob that would remain with him throughout his life. Rob and his brother both began to take on the household chores, care of their dad’s rental property, and the family car. Rob grew to love working on cars and was a self-taught mechanic. He attended St. Francis High School in La Canada (class of '89) where he was on the honor roll and lettered every year as a tight end and special teams receiver on the freshman, junior varsity, and varsity football teams. Rob continued piano lessons and was a virtuoso concert pianist. He also took on a love for weightlifting. His love of cars led him to work as a gas station attendant in high school and as a mechanic in college. Despite his good looks, always perfect hair, and chiseled physic, Rob had only had two steady girlfriends through these years. His commitment ran deep. Once Rob decided on something it was all or nothing. He approached everything he did with an all-in mentality. Rob took up interests in motorcycles, off-roading, fishing, camping, and hunting. He was an avid outdoorsman and shared his many talents with his younger brother, Ted. Rob attended Cal State University Northridge and received his Bachelor of Science in Finance in 1995. Thereafter he went to work for Disney Corporation in Hollywood as an accountant and marketing representative. During this time he met his future wife Kristina and in 2004 they wed. A year later his daughter Chloe was born. Then in 2006, they built their dream home and moved to Arizona to be closer to his brother's family. Here Rob renewed his love of motorcycle riding and the outdoors. He designed and built his backyard pool and relished in parenthood and home ownership. In recent years, Rob began to lose his eyesight and eventually became blind. He retired early and became reclusive in the past few years. Rob died peacefully in his home from apparent heart failure, the result of a heart murmur he’s had since his youth. Rob is survived by his 17-year-old daughter Chloe, younger brother Ted, and former spouse Tina. Services for Rob will be held on March 10th. Funeral at St. Juan Diego in Chandler at 10 a.m. Burial at Queen of Heaven in Mesa at 11:45 a.m.
