Obituary for Horace "Hobie" Chandor

Horace M. “Hobie” Chandor, Jr. died peacefully at home on April 14, 2018. Born on December 8, 1948, he was a retired school teacher who will be dearly missed.
He was preceded in death by parents Horace and Elizabeth Chandor. He is survived by his sisters, Linda (Clifford) Bukoski, Vicky (Terry) George and Robin (Charles) Bowie. He is also survived by his nieces Tina (Mustafa), Erica and Olivia and nephews Lucas and Wyatt as well as his great nieces Hailey, Tyleia and Neah and great nephews Zachary and Cameron. Also surviving are his beloved cousin Patricia Rodenhauser, Aunt Gladys Rowles and numerous cousins and dear friends.

Hobie was a high school science teacher for over 28 years. He so enjoyed sharing his love of science with his students, or as he would say "his kids". He was truly dedicated to helping his kids learn; failure was not an option.

Hobie was a faithful member of Elks Lodge # 2332. He took great pride and joy in spearheading many of their annual events and fundraisers including their annual Thanksgiving Day buffet and their drug awareness program. He loved playing poker with his good friends, and had a wonderful sense of humor.

He loved football, volleyball, diving and golf, and looked forward to his annual golf outing with his buddies. He also was a lover of cats; there never was one too many in his opinion. For every stray cat that showed up on his porch, he was quick to take them to the vet and then bring them home to care for them.

Horace and I had biology together with Mrs. Elmore. I remember Mrs. Elmore, in her southern acccent, saying "now Horace..." whever she wanted him to focus on classwork. I think she just liked calling his name. R.I.P.

HI HORACE!

I'M VERY SORRY TO LEARN ABOUT YOUR DEATH, RATHER YOUR JOURNEY TO THE ENLIGHTENED SIDE.  

I GOT TO KNOW YOU MUCH BETTER AFTER WE WERE GRADUATED.

I KNOW, WHEN YOU GET TO THERE PULL UP A CHAIR, AND GREET THE REST OF US WHEN WE GET THERE.

GOD BLESS YOU HORACE

Sorry to hear about the loss of Horace. Always with a smile and his laughter was contagious at times.

A joyful spirit will be welcome in Heaven. My prayers go out to his family and for his peaceful repose.

May he Rest in Peace. God Bless you my friend. Life is certainly too short.

Another one of our Crossland family going to heaven.  I called him Horace.  He had the most engaging smile for everyone.  The rush of memories that go through your mind when this happens. I pray God keep him and keep our Crossland family safe.
