My deepest sympathies to Melanie and their children. In the short time I knew Chester I saw the devoted husband and father; nature lover that Crystal described in her eulogy. I vicariously enjoyed the trips he and Melanie took in recent years through all the pics they shared. The many memories that were made live on in our hearts. The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: the Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: the Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

How time flies. Its hard to believe I'm known yall since our daughters were 5-6 years old. And now your daughter is my niece in law. I've enjoy having our talks when we would come over and visit. I'm so glad we were able to visit one last time and watch you laugh and smile. You will always be in my thoughts.

I was saddened to learn today Chester has passed. Truly a Good Man and a kind soul. I was fortunate and had the pleasure to work with Chester and the great guys at NU as a Superintendent at AIP. I looked forward to our daily conversations and working together on Projects. My Heart and Prayers go out to Chester's family.
