It is with heartfelt sympathy, we announce the passing of Mr. Malandro Chambers, of Ballplay, AL, who traded time for eternity on Friday, November 10, 2023 at the age of 30. We ask that you keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Malandro Cal Jean Chambers entered this world on May 13, 1993, in Birmingham, Alabama to Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm and Donna Chambers.
In his youth, he attended various educational units in the Cherokee County School system. While attending Cherokee County High School he played junior varsity and varsity basketball for four years and graduated in the class of 2012.
As the years went on he found happiness in playing an active and vibrant role in the lives of his children, and those of not just his immediate family but his extended one as well.
Consequently, he was blessed with a host of cousins, aunts, and uncles who supported and nurtured him as one of their own.
Malandro expressed himself in many ways. As an avid sports fan, he watched and would always have his own unique, colorful commentary on both amateur and professional sports. However, basketball stayed prominent in his life as he participated in G league basketball for some years and would always be in search of the best general “hoop around.”
He was no stranger to the art of “trash talk” during his sporting exploits, but more often than not he could back it up. But even in doing so, we always saw the ever-existent smile that let you know that he never took it personally. In reality, his love of the game, the sheer competition, and the people exceeded the pride of just victory alone.
In addition, his fondness for music, singing, and rapping found a place in his heart from a young age and continued to grow throughout the years. At times he became philosophical and stoic in demeanor while like most of us, he attempted to resolve some of the complexities of life as a whole. In doing so he evolved into that Malandro that found solace and reprieve from hard work as much as he did with general entertainment.
Those who knew him, those who loved him encountered a spirit that walked with kindness as much as he did honesty and conviction. In today’s vernacular, they say, “Keep it Real and Keep it 100.” With Malandro one never had to wonder, for he was as natural and genuine as they come in his expression of both.
Malandro was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jacke and Ruby Chambers, John and Izola Wright; and four uncles, Charles, Hurley, Bobby, and William Chambers.
He leaves to cherish his memory two sons, Montavious and Matthew Chambers; a special girlfriend, Caressa Bolding; parents, Malcolm and Donna Chambers; six brothers, Malcolm Chambers Pontiac, Mich,
