Chester attended Oneida Elementary School in Oneida. He enjoyed working on his grandparent farm and also did work for others in the community.
He was a friendly, happy person and always met family, friends and strangers with a smile. Chester was loved by who were blessed to have them in their lives.
He moved to Chicago, Ill. in 1981 and remained there for 33 years. Chester moved back to Arkansas in 2014. He departed this life on March 1, 2014 at UAMS hospital in Little Rock.
