John Spencer Chandler, Jr., 50 of Appomatox, VA passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at Lynchburg General Hospital surrounded by his loved ones.
John was born on September 1, 1967 in Binghamton, NY to the late John Spencer Chandler, Sr and Gerlinda "Linda" Irene Elliott Swansbrough. John passed in 2014 and Linda in 2016. He attended Cander High School, NY and worked as an Independent Contractor throughout New York and Virginia for over 30 years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, long drives and exploring the outdoors. He was a talented craftsman and mechanic; work with his hands and creating things were his gift that he loved to share, especially with family.
