It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of our father, brother, uncle, and friend, Malcolm Chambers. On September 21st, 2021, at the age of 57, Malcolm passed away peacefully in his home in Winnipeg Beach Manitoba. Malcolm was predeceased by his mother Irene, father Garry, and best friends Dwane and Bonnie. He is survived by his daughters Mackayla and Leah and their mother Annie, who he loved, and who loved him. He will be remembered and deeply missed by, his brother Jamie (Kim), his sisters Susan (Chris) and Colleen, his aunties Florence and Margret as well as his uncle Johnny. Malcolm has left behind many cousins, nieces, and nephews, who will also miss him dearly.
Malcolm was an amazing man; he almost always had a smile on his face. Described as having a good sense of humor, Malcolm always had something witty to say. He loved to make people laugh and smile. Malcolm was a giver and spent many of his days helping people in his community. If you needed your satellite fixed, grass cut, or anything else Malcolm was always just a phone call away. He wouldn’t ask for much in return and was usually satisfied with something to eat and a cold can of Pepsi. He was always willing to lend out a helping hand and devoted so much of his time to other people. He will always be remembered for his huge heart and his goofy and selfless personality.
Malcolm spent his life working in the trades. He started working with his Uncle Johnny when he was only 14 or 15 years old. Malcolm was a hard worker. He would spend the hot summer days up on roofs, or under houses. He was a talented carpenter, known for his quality work. His amazing tan could be credited to his many hours working outdoors. During the winters he would find odd jobs here and there. In his spare time, Malcolm enjoyed cutting the grass with his riding lawnmower, watching sports games (his favorites were hockey football, and tennis), grilling up something tasty on the barbecue, and spending time with his friends and family. You could often find Malcolm with his cousins Bradley and Alex on their way to grab a Tim Hortons coffee. Malcolm and Alex were the best of buddies. Malcolm loved to goof around and pester Alex, they were always laughing when around each other.
Malcolm was a proud father; he loved his daughters more than anything in the world. In his youth Malcolm could be described as a “wild child” but as soon as his daughters came into the picture, things changed. Dad was our best friend, biggest supporter, and hero. He loved us with everything he could. Everything he did was for us. Every day spent with dad was a good one. He always encouraged us to be our best selves and to work hard for our education and future. We will miss talking with him every day and hearing what goofy things he had to say. Most of all we will miss hearing I love you and getting a hug.
Malcolm meant so much to so many people and will be truly missed by friends, family, and the community.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held.
