William Earl “Billy” Chambers, Jr.

William Earl “Billy” Chambers, Jr. of Leland, NC, passed away on Saturday, July 23, 2022 at his home with his family by his side.

Billy was born on March 8, 1957 in Chapel Hill, NC, to the late William Earl Chambers, Sr. and Wilma Gray Rayborn.

Billy was a truck driver for 40 years. He loved the road, although, he missed his family while he was gone. He made many friends over the years that he met along the road. Billy was like a human GPS; everyone would call him for directions, no matter where they were going. He could always tell them how to get there step by step.

To all his trucking friends, please know that he loved you all and was always telling us (his family) stories about things along the road. We may not have learned your real names, but we sure learned your CB handles. Billy was very thankful for all the friends he made along the road. And we, his family, are thankful that he had a family away from his family.

Billy is survived by his wife of 40 years Patsy Black Chambers, his daughters Brandi Chambers, Chrissy Monzon, and Angie Lund, his son Jeff Cayton (Kristin), grandchildren Brandon Cayton (Alena), William Chambers (fiancé Kelsey), Amy Chambers, Jacob Monzon, Jerrett Monzon, Jaden Monzon, Summer Lawson, Noa Lawson, CoCo Lund, and Shelby Lee, four great grandchildren Ansley, Winnie, Wyatt Cayton, and Paisley Monzon, his little sidekick Bella, three brothers Thomas Chambers, Mike Chambers (Jo), and Jay Chambers (Jennifer), four sisters Wendy Chambers, Lynda Chambers-Spivey (Carl), Dana Caison (Leon), and Wanda Fulton (Arthur), and many nieces, nephews, and extended family members. He is predeceased by both his parents.

There will be a Visitation on Saturday, July 30, 2022 at Wilmington Funeral & Cremation – Wilmington Chapel from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. All are welcome to attend.

A Memorial Service will be announced at a later time.

    Well Billy , what do I say. You started me in the trucking biz in 1985. And I'm still there . Because of your help and advice on how to do the logbooks your way,lol and how to survive life on the road.you helped me when I needed it as I did you. I blew out 2 tires in Newberry SC ,so you mounted 2 of yours and brought them to me and put them on my truck so I could get going . You got shut down in Knoxville tenn . So we brought you the part to get you going we have always been there for each other in many ways. At hooters getting us kicked out,lol. And calling Earl to bring the hook after the bars close..too many great times to say.You always called me Robert where everybody else said Bobby you said you did because that's your real name... I'll never forget you,your the brother of all brothers. Now I'll do for you what you said you were gonna do for me. But you know I will . RIP Billy. Till the next time...
