An eternal flame for you, Dad. You will always live in my heart.
Thank you everyone for your kind words. My dad was truly a Renaissance man. Despite enduring combat, he retained a childlike wonder and appreciation of the world & its mysteries, which he shared with me throughout his life. I am so very thankful and blessed to be his daughter. His unconditional love and great lessons will remain with me all the days of my life. Debbie
Deborah and Family, I am so sorry for the loss of your Father,You all are in my thoughts and prayers and may the God of comfort and peace be with you all.
I worked at Lake Park for 2 years and had the pleasure of taking care of Chester. He was an amazing man, he kept me entertained with many of his stories and we often talked about how hard it was to find a good worker. I remember how he was upset that I was transfering out to the hospital but told me he was proud I made a good choice :) He was truly one of a kind. My prayers are with his family.
Chester was a patriot and loyal friend. He will be remembered by his fellow American Legion Post 335 members as a Veteran of two wars who gave far more than his share. The lives of those who knew him were enriched by his strong leadership and friendship.
Debbie, sending our deepest sympathy. May your Dad Rest in Peace. I no you will miss him, its hard to loose a Dad. God Be with you, always.
Chet and I met first-as freshmen at the University of Toledo-circa Jan,1948.
I was a super-wkward ,long hairted freshmen, that did not even have a locker,until Chester shared his. We were friends then and later with The Toledo based 140th Artillery Battalion, of the 37th Infantry Division-during Korean War days.He was always friendly and helpful, and will be missed!
My mother and I both worked for Chet for over 10 years at the Rubber Stamp Shop. He was an awesome man, always full of encouragement and praise.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this sad time. May the Lord hold you in the palm of his hand, until you see Chet again.
