Our deepest sympathies to Chester's children, Linda & Scott, and to all the grandchildren, on the loss of their Dad & Granddad.  I (Wayne) was just a youngster when he was released as a Prisoner Of War at the end of World War II, and still remember him coming to my parents home right after getting back home. Those were some very difficult years for all the families back home...and I remember the huge relief when he was released.  Not many of those old WWII POW's left; that's for sure.  He was my cousin and also Ann's & my brother-in-law. Blessings to all the family.
