William Adon Chamblee Obituary
November 3, 1954 - November 1, 2017
William Adon Chamblee, known to his friends as Don, age 62, passed away on Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas.
Don was born on November 3rd, 1954 in Hobbs, New Mexico, and is predeceased by his parents, Jim and Joe Chamblee, and his wife Karen Lynn Chamblee.

After graduating from Eunice High School, Don joined the Air Force in 1976 where he studied at NMJC ADN School of Nursing, and afterwards worked as a Medical Technician at Brooke Army Medical Center, helping those who were critically wounded, something he found very fulfilling and loved to recount stories of. Don enjoyed attending all sorts of fairs and events, anyplace where food, people, and celebration could be found. He was an extremely affable person, able to sit down and have a conversation with anyone. He also greatly enjoyed music as well as literature, always looking forward to concerts for his favorite bands, and never to be found without a fresh book beside his bed. But more than all he cared deeply for his wife Karen, and his son Jared whom he spent as much time with as he could.

Don is survived by his son, Jared Chamblee; his brother in law, Mark Rich and his wife Kathy Rich; his sister in law, Susan Okaty and her husband George Okaty and numerous nephews and nieces.

Internment with military honors will be held on Wednesday November 15th at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery at 10:45 AM with Reverend Calvin Reynolds presiding.
