Rest in peace "Coach Chuck"

I am sorry that he's gone. He was my gym teacher and a very nice guy--he played volleyball with me when no one else would. I graduated with his son, Drew, in '95. My condolences to his entire family.

Chuck Tester was my basketball and track coach from 1984 to 1987. I can't began to tell you all the things this man taught me. I will truley miss him.

Words cannot express our sympathy for his loving family and partner, Linda. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time.

Coach Tester was a major influence in my son, Jed Birch's life. Jed worked for Coach Tester doing a variety of jobs from setting up fields, take scores during basketball games or filling drink machines. Coach Tester gave him behind the wheel training and inspired him in so many ways. He was a great male role model for my son. Thank you for being there for him. You are missed!! Shirley Tourigny

Chuck Tester was my coach in 1975 at chester middle school - he was a mentor of mine then and always will be - I will keep your family in my prayers

Celebrating a life well lived. To the Family you are in our prayers. Thanks Coach for all of the life lessons you taught us and that ride to the State championship Game.

Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
