I met Chester briefly at Michael (his grandson) and Nicole's wedding rehearsal dinner. Chester's wit and charm were immediately apparent and irresistible to all present. It was truly a delight to be in his company, and it was clear that he was adored by all who knew him--the mark of a life well-lived. I offer my most sincere condolences to the loved ones mourning the departure of this playful and endearing spirit.
