God bless Chet. I met Chet at the Monthly lunches with Pete Pappas group. Chet was a pure joy who had story after story about everyone he knew in Akron. We loved him like a brother. He will be remembered years from now. We are so sad for everyone's loss.

Chet was a one of a kind personality who brightened up every room and conversation. His quirky stories and uncanny knowledge of absolutely everything will always be in my memories and I am fortunate to have that. Love you guys.
