L. Hays Chambers, former Dean of Student Affairs at Penn State DuBois, passed away recently at the DuBois Nursing Home.
A devoted husband, father and grandfather; he was loved by many and a friend to all, but most importantly, a devoted servant of God. Mr. Chambers retired in 1980 after 20 years of service to the Penn State DuBois campus. He was one of those rare people who enjoyed every day he spent at the campus as it allowed him to be in contact and work with the students he so enjoyed.
Mr. Chambers was born March 4, 1920, a World War II Navy Veteran and was also active in the community. He served as President of the Chamber of Commerce, DuBois Community Center, past President and Rotary club member as well as a Paul Harris Fellow. He held many positions at First United Methodist Church, DuBois and was a former Jaycees Distinguished Service Award recipient.
Hays is survived by his son, John W. and daughter-in-law, Lori, along with granddaughters, Olivia and Emily, all of DuBois; and two brothers, William of Cumberland, Md., and Richard of Williamsport, Md.
