Chester J. Dyko, age 89 of Toledo, passed away Monday, June 11, 2018 in Hospice of Northwest Ohio – Toledo. He was born on August 4, 1928 to Walter and Agnes (Borkowski) Dyko in Toledo. After graduating from Woodward High School, Chester served his country in the U.S. Army. Following his military service, he began his career as a letter carrier for the U.S. Post Office. In 1951, he married Vera Clark, a union lasting until her death in 2006, raising five children. Chester was a devout Catholic, serving as an usher at Holy Rosary Cathedral for over 40 years. He was generous with his time and talent, coaching CYO baseball, acting as a Cub Scout leader and donating gallons of blood to the Red Cross. Chester's teams were the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Steelers. Those who knew him best describe him as having the ideal blend of strength and kindness with a sense of humor, patience and practicality as well.

Mourning Chester's passing are his children, Rose Dyko, Margaret Pflager, Francis (James) Randolph, Christopher Dyko and Christine Dyko. Also mourning are his grandchildren, Lisa, Christopher Jr., Mary Beth and Aryanna.
