So sorry for your loss. You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. Chet was a great guy. We remember the day he came over to our home to purchase some of our CD's. He was very humble. We attended Christ the King Church many times and heard him singing. He had a beautiful voice. God Bless You Chet and may you rest in peace.

Chet was a friend of ours for many years. An exceptional person. We will miss his singing at daily Mass. We pray for his family and for his soul.

God gave Chester a special gift of a strong and beautiful voice that he shared at daily Mass. At a young age of six, he would sit with our family in the first pew on Sunday at Christ the King Church, and after Mass, he would join the congregation in singing loud and clear “Boze Cos Polska”. His love for the Lord showed in him daily. He was alwways there for you to help in any way. May the Lord Bless you and keep you in his loving care. Love You Alice, Ed, Ed Jr., James Joseph, Dianne and family

Annie, Greg and the rest of the family: When Father Ray asked for prayers on Wednesday, they must have helped your Dad (Grandfather) in his last suffering. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy upon your loss. He loved you all and was a proud Dad and Grandfather. Most recently we would see him at Hanna’s in the Orchard and he would bring us up-to-date about his family in Florida. he is now with his beloved Helen, may they both rest in God’s peace. After Mass this morning, and after the final song, the Polish choir sang two verses of Serdeczna Matko (2 verses) and we felt that it was their last farewell to him. God bless all of you,

All my condolences Anne, Greg and the rest of the family. I was so sad to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was an unforgettable man. He did so much for all of us and was a great contributor to the community. I never remember a time he was ever content to sit and relax. He was always on the move. He set a great example for all of us about the value of hard work - but also about how to have fun. I’ll never forget he and your Mom taking us all to Hampton beach in the delivery truck, and so many nights full of gut-busting laughter at your kitchen table playing cards or board games with them. They made your home a fun place for everyone who came through the door. I hope you’re comforted recalling all the memories. Your Dad made a significant difference throughout his life that will long be remembered.

Uncle Chet was always there to lend a helping hand. Great memories growing up on Fairway Drive with my cousins, Uncle Chet and Auntie Helen just down the street. He gave me my first job at Harmony Springs soda company and he will be missed. Peace
