We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at The Butterfield Home and Chapel
George Warren Chamberlain Sr. of Cranston, passed away peacefully at Hope Hospice on Wednesday August 4, 2021. Born in North Kingstown, he was the son of the late Irving and Dorothy Chamberlain and was a former Senior Vice President for Citizens Bank where he had worked for 39 years and was the former President of the Rhode Island Fraud Investigation Association. He was the beloved husband of Victoria (Iacono) Chamberlain, father of George Warren Chamberlain Jr., sibling to four brothers, one sister and special cousin of Ann Marie Barone. He was a graduate of Central High School and Providence College and played second base with The Citizens Bank softball team. He loved to play cribbage at work with his coworkers and hardly ever lost. He enjoyed playing Texas Hold'em card games.
How about this......Mom went on a business trip with dad and got locked in the bathroom. She was banging on the door for someone to hear but the door was sound proof. When she finally got out of the bathroom, dad had to hold her down because she wanted to jump out of the plane!
Another time we went to Canobie Lake Park with the bank, not a lot of people appreciated him being on the ride in the park because he got sick on some rides and kept giving people a shower.... if you know what I mean (ha ha).
He also enjoyed going to New Hampshire in the summer. Every year we did something different, this particular summer we went to see the bear show and he was eating vanilla ice cream. He must of been too close to the bear because the bear took his ice cream. You should have seen his face, we all couldn't stop laughing! I hope he remembers this in his new journey of life, I'm sure it will make him laugh.
To my Dad for always being there for me in life, I miss you so very much. When it is baseball or hockey season, it will not be the same because of the wonderful times we shared. One of the most memorable times I will always remember is when my father and I went to Yankee Stadium. Of course he wondered off and I had to go searching for him all the way to the other side of the stadium. Each time I would find him, he would be eating something then we would get a whole bag of souvenirs to bring back home... Thank god we won the game. I will also always remember how we went on business trips together. Dad, you always made me proud of you and showed me how to be a caring man just like you were towards mom in life. I still need you. Why did this happen? I love you with all my heart and soul. Do not worry I will keep my promise and take good care of mom. I love you Pops.
To my incredible husband and best friend... No one can take your place. I will never forget the love we had and special life we shared, you are in my heart everyday. You had a heart of gold, our love just kept growing. I will always love you, and do not know what to do without you. I miss you so very much my love, you were to young to leave. We shared many great times as a family.
To all his former coworkers at Citizens Bank where he worked for 39 amazing years and met many good friends along the way, to all his daily and special friends from Dunkin Donuts, to his breakfast buds and long time friends, to all his friends near and far... Thank you for loving this kind and caring man that we all got to know. He loved all of you and we will miss him dearly. My love your wings were ready to fly but my heart was not! My heart is broken. Love you Vickie.
SERVICES WILL BE AT A LATER DATE.
