Chet – Dad – Grandpa – was known and loved by so many people. His deep Christian faith, character, wisdom and positive disposition gained him great respect and influence. All who were blessed to know him will continue to be inspired, encouraged and challenged to do more, complain less, and laugh until the tears flow.
The family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the staff at the Wales Home for the exceptional care and love they showed Chet. He thoroughly enjoyed life at the Wales Home, and we are so grateful.
