Chet was my neighbor for years...I was in Kiwanis with him and he was my bell-ringer partner at KMart when it was
time to ring the bells for Salvation Army and Kiwanis at Christmas time. He was such a sweet man. I will never forget him.
Chet, may you Rest In Peace. I will miss you neighbor. ❤️🙏🏼

We will always remember your smile, and the relaxed way you’d say ‘okay’ made us laugh. Sophie says you were always so nice to her. We will miss you, and we promise to ‘stay out of trouble’
