John was such a special man, who was an awesome husband, dad, and grandfather. He had the most forgiving heart of anyone, and was loved by everyone who knew him. He loved people, he loved to sing, and he loved going to church at First Freewill Baptist Church in Russellville. He lived his Christian life daily and was such an example to everyone.

He was preceded in death by his son, Mike Reogas; parents, Albert Edward and Lula Mae Chambers; siblings, Bertha Elledge, Shirley Quillen, and James Harold Chambers.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Marjorie Chambers; children, Kyle Reogas (wife, Joyce), Vicki Riley, Lisa Duncan, Laura Brooks; grandchildren, Meshia Reogas Bridges, Jennifer Ricketts, Kesha Riley, Christopher Riley, Kendall Turbyfill (husband, Tanner and children, Blaine, Eli, & Maci), Clint Duncan, Michelle Stemen, Tommy Reogas, Lexi Brooks, Riley, & Caden; several great-grandchildren; sister, Gail West; and several nieces & nephews.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff of Hospice of North Alabama and especially our nurses, Kristen & Machelle for the love and care of our family.
