We have fond memories of Chester. When we came from Poland to U.S. he helped us settle in. Our first Christmas Chet and Florence surprised us with gifts and a visit. Always looked out for us. We will surely miss Chet and his sense of humor. Condolences to the family he loved so much. May he rest in peace.
