Chester DeWayne Moats Obituary
December 3, 1929 - October 31, 2016 Chester DeWayne Moats was born in Portland, Oregon on December 3, 1929 and died in Los Angeles on October 31, 2016. He began life in humble surroundings, joined the service as a young man, married and started a family, and continued his education. He was primarily an accountant, but he also tried his hand at cosmetic sales, bicycle sales, and real estate. He remarried mid-life and created an even bigger family, all of whom adored him. He was kind and gentle, generous and understanding. He could be the life of the party or the calm in the middle of a storm. He taught us without lecturing. He loved us without judging. Our lives have been enriched by his presence, and will feel empty by his departure. Chet is survived by his loving wife, Ruth, and a large family including his siblings, children, step-children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, and nieces and nephews. Service will be held at 11 am, on 11/09/16, at Gates, Kingsley & Gates Smith, 4220 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Culver City, Ca.
