So very sorry to hear of Chet passing. Waited for him at DD this morning for coffee as we had every Saturday morning. Never showed. Was away at the time and had no idea. We had great ventures planned for the future but now they will never come to fruition. Will miss him immensely. How we laughed!!!

Chet was one of the hardest working men I knew. He and Joanne raised three wonderful boys and pushed them hard. Myself and my family send condolences to the entire family. Rest In Peace. ❤️❤️❤️
