Chester was a veteran of World War II and came home to serve his country again by service to his community in many ways.

He was also very active in his church, St. Andrew's United Methodist.

He is survived by his wife, Hilda Freeman, sister Glenda (Grady) Kilgo, son Dr. Phil (Patti) Freeman, daughter Carolyn (Dr. Bill) Peinhardt, grandchildren Clint (Anne) Peinhardt, Lanie (Jeb) Williamson, Rachel (Wesley) Dawsey, Amy Williams, Meredith (Jeff) Middlebrooks, and honorary grandson Allan (Stella) Chiunda.
