To Kerry and Chet's daughters, I extend my deepest sympathy. May all the wonderful memories you hold near and dear to your hearts bring you some small measure of comfort during this most difficult time. I grew up watching Chet and Nat for decades like so many others. They were like family even though our paths never crossed; that is, until he moved to Quincy and our paths crossed on different occasions. What an amazing man he was. He was a generous, humble gentleman who could tell a story like no other. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to sing. He will be missed by so many of his neighborhood friends in Quincy. The WCVB Chronicle piece last evening was a testament to Chet's professional career. It brought me to tears. He was that same man when the cameras weren't rolling. He had a wonderful gift of making whoever was in his company feel very special.
No more suffering…….rest in peace, Chet!!
