In 1985 Chet and Velma bought their retirement home in Sun City where they played golf daily, were in bowling leagues, played cards with friends and overall enjoyed everything life had to offer. Velma was an active member of "The Butterflies" in Sun City and found great peace and great friendships with these giving and kind ladies. Family was always in the forefront of their lives and every occasion was celebrated with a family "gathering" of some sort. Velma ALWAYS loved a good party.
