I'm so sorry to hear of Chet's passing. We always bumped into each other at Kroger's and he was constantly in an optimistic mood.
Chet was one of my journeymen in the apprenticeship at Keystone in the 70's and he never forgot who I was. He was a good man and a good electrician. Vaya con Dios, Chet.

Dear Nichols Family, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I remember our neighborhood in Bartonville fondly, and your family was one of my favorites. Obviously I’m prejudiced since our families will be forever joined by shared relatives. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Kathy
