Chester was born in Cleveland on November 7, 1943, and passed away on December 11, 2023. He graduated from Bedford High School. He married the love of his life Kathryn and loved her unconditionally and took great care of her. Chester was an electrician by trade and retired from General Electric with over 30 years of service after several prior attempts to retire. His hobbies included shooting, fishing, boating, motorcycles, traveling, lawn care and watching Cleveland sports. He loved country music, especially Willie Nelson and John Denver.

Chester was a neighborly guy who was always quick to lend a hand. Chet enjoyed smoking cigarettes, drinking beer, going to the casino, sitting by the pool and his grandkids. People who knew him best would describe him as lovable, loyal, sociable, steadfast and patient. He provided his family with security and a strong foundation.
