J.B. was born in Fayette County to the late J.H. and Beatrice Griffin Chandler on March 30, 1922. He was a World War II veteran, having served in the Pacific Theatre, including the occupation of Japan when the War ended. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his first wife of 49 years, Charlotte Willoughby Chandler; his oldest brother, Marion Chandler, who was the first soldier from Fayette County to be killed in WW II; an older brother Gary, also a WW II veteran, and a younger sister, Josieleen.

J. B. spent his career as a skilled wood craftsman and specialty cabinetmaker. He worked most of his career at Greer Industries in Fayetteville and Robert K. Price Company in Peachtree City. He loved the outdoors, especially the mountains, and was known for the extraordinary garden he planted every year. After retirement, J. B. taught himself silversmithing and lapidary, which enabled him to make and sell handmade silver jewelry. He loved bluegrass music and traveling to music festivals around the South and other opportunities to enjoy music. Above all, he enjoyed spending time with his family, to which he was devoted. He and Elizabeth are members of the North Fayette United Methodist Church.
