Chester worked for Grimes County Road Maintenance for over 30 years. He enjoyed working in the garden, as well as shelling pecans and picking berries. He could often be seen riding his lawnmower around town. He found solace in sitting quietly, looking at the moon and savored a slow country ride so that he could take in the scenery.
He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Geraldine and Clarence Emshoff of Willis; nieces Lisa Emshoff of Conroe and Kim Eilers and husband Kenny of Willis; and great niece and nephews Kristen, Noah and Nathan Eilers.
Serving as pallbearers are Gerald Schroeder, Willie Gerald Leiber, Tommy Szymczak and La Vearne Backhus, all of Anderson; Kenny Eilers of Willis and Thomas Kowis of Plantersville.
Chester was preceded in death by his parents.
