Dear Chester family, Cliff and I worked together at StorkGamco for 20 years and I don't think I ever met a more patient person than Cliff. He had an incredible memory for individual machinery parts and was always willing to share his knowledge. His love of family and God was always apparent in his quiet way and I know he will be greatly missed.

Dear Joyce and family: I am so sorry about Cliff's passing...When my neighbor came over to tell me of it, I got upset - and had to apologize (later) and explain to the neighbor that I was not upset about him, but only upset about the news. Only knew Cliff for 3 or 4 years, but hands down, Cliff was the nicest person I met since I moved here from Ohio. My daughter was home from college a year or two (2) ago , we were at the Food Lion, and ran into Mr. Chester. I introduced my daughter and Mr. Chester was the most friendly, engaging person - he asked my daughter about school about the schools football program. I will never forget his kind, engaging, big, beautiful, blue eyes.
To Joyce: I know we might have had a neighborly disagreement in the past - but I am here for you in any way I can be. I am so sorry for your loss. I feel your pain in the sense that I miss Cliff dearly as well.
Take care, and please let me know if I can help you in any way
