Robert Chaney

Bob passed away on August 20, 2014.  More details to follow concerning a Celebration of his Life planned for September 6th.


We are saddened to report that Bob Chaney passed away on August 20, 2014.

From Steve Hart, MAC '70:

Bob Chaney, husband, son, brother, father, grandfather and my closest friend passed peacefully late

Wednesday August 20, 2014.  In the 10 months of a difficult struggle, I never once heard him say why

me?  He remained the ole Bob till the very end, joking and sparring with whoever was there.  As much

as he teased the nurses and hospice, it was the way he did it that kept him endeared to them.  Bob was

like a brother to me only more.  As they say, you can’t pick your relatives but I was proud to have been

picked by Bob. It’s said that God has a plan for all of us and surely, we don’t always understand the whys

when it seems unfair. I do know that he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  There will be a

celebration of his life at his home in Katy, TX 1703 Breezy Bend 77494 on Sept 06, 2014, the time hasn’t

yet been set.  Or you can contact Shelli at that street address or

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

I am so very saddened by the news that Bob died last night. I know words cannot really help you right now, but please know how very much I care and feel for you in your loss. I can only imagine how difficult his death has been for you and your family. The Lord bless and keep you and your loved ones always Bob.

Bob was one of a kind and a friend for almost 50 years.  He kept me in stitches (and sometimes trouble) throughout High School, College and our early bachelor years.  I was best man at his wedding and he was Godfather to all of my children (he liked to be called GodBobby).  I will certainly miss all he represented to me, my Family and our friends.

RIP ole Buddy,

Bob was in my advisory and since we sat alphabetically, he sat in front or behind me for high school.  Bob kept you on your toes!  He was fun, kind, and always came across as such a panty dropper.  This reputation often limited how he was perceived.  I can remember talks about his brothers, and that he often baby sat little kids.  In more recent years my husband worked with him on 1 or 2 jobs, and I suspect Bob was an excellent salesman.  He loved his kids.  My sympathy goes out to his children, and his wife he had a big personality whose loss leaves a big hole.
