I have so many fond memories of Chester that it's hard to just pick one or two. Chester loved Christmas, not because he received gifts, but because he LOVED to give gifts. Chester loved shopping and giving presents (regardless if it was a holiday or not). He paid attention to what we liked and always gave us something we would like and could use. He was always so excited to watch us open his presents to us!!! Another fond memory I have is going to bingo with Chester. He loved going!!!! He was pretty lucky too and would just grin from ear to ear when he won. He would quickly hide his money to spend on other people later. Chester, bingo will not be the same without you!!!! I will always love and miss you and Thank you for everything you did for me.

One of the memories I will never forget about Chester was when he was telling us about the chicken water and how it got all over him at work. Also I have also been amazed on how he navigated the bus system for all of those years shopping and going to work. God Bless.

Chester was our Brother -in-Law and he was a very good and caring person. He was always willing to help in any way he could and one of my memories is that he enjoyed bringing toys home for the kids. He also enjoyed playfully teasing with others. Chester will be missed.

Chester was my uncle for most of my life and I can remember the day he and my Aunt were married. Throughout his life he was always looking to give someone in the family a gift and most often they were hand made. He was always looking to make someone happy! Chester was a very kind person and would always have a story to tell. My favorite saying that Chester would tell me was his initials. His full name was Chester Otis Wort- Initials were COW. Best initials ever! Rest in Peace and may God Bless You in your eternal life!

We will remember all the little conversations we had. It was hard to understand him sometimes but it was always fun and entertaining and he made us laugh.

Chester was the sweetest. He was my uncle and I always remember him always thinking of others and how to make them happy. He made me a lively wooden sign for my home as well. Chester would go out of his way for people he cared about. He would always bring home little dolls and toys that he thought I would like. I will miss him so much!

My favorite memories of Chester are from my childhood. I remember him walking me and my sister from Grandma’s house down the alley to Circle K for a little treat. I remember him coming home after work with toys to play with us. He would always give us 100% of his attention and we would often laugh a lot. I’m thankful for the great memories he left me with. He will be missed!

Chester was married to my sister Janet for 40 yrs and always remembered every anniversary and birthday and Christmas - he was always very thoughtful and generous! Chester loved to visit with anyone and made friends wherever he went ! Chester wasn’t very good at reading and writing but could ride a bus and figure out the bus schedules without any problems - he loved to go anywhere and was always first one in the car when time to go. Chester also loved his weekly Walmart trips and loved going to casino! He will be greatly missed!
