| WHEREAS, A man of exceptional concern and insight, Jack Chester also achieved a praiseworthy record of service to the community. A decorated U.S. Naval Reserve veteran of World War II, he was an active member of numerous boards, societies, and charitable organizations, and he will long be remembered for his kindness and his unwavering commitment to service; and|
| WHEREAS, Jack Chester willingly shared his energy and abilities with his friends and family, including his wife, the late Cynthia, his four children, John, James, Joel, and Cecily, and his eleven grandchildren, and his efforts will certainly live beyond him.
