Sandy, I came across this by accident (long story). I met your dad a few times when at BGSU. I remember specifically when he showed some of us the chicken "barn" and the automatic egg dispenser. I remember him being a kind man and very knowledgeable! I'm so very sorry to read about his death. It's always hard to let go of a parent. I'm enclosing my email and would enjoy visiting (we are in Walnut Creek) linda_u@sbcglobal.net

Certainly regret being out of state and missing Chet's services. We always enjoyed his company, whether at Exchange Club, morning coffee at McDonalds, Swanton Township meetings, or at the vegetable stand. He has been and will continue to be missed. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of Chet's death. I agree with all the comments above that he was a really special guy. I remember dad saying how much they enjoyed traveling with him as he would talk to anybody and they always found out so many interesting things. He will be missed.
