Chet, was an amazing person. Greatest basketball player ever i have encountered on. I only knew Chet for a few years, but he was someone i strived to be. I remembered one time he picked me up to play ball and he asked me your really going to wear those shoes, i said, yea why not, he took me to champs and bought me a new pair. He had the best heart. I wish i could be half the person Chet was. May your soul rest in peace. I am sure that God has you in his line up with the other angels watching over us.

Carmela, Lexi, and the rest of the Gil family, I am deeply sorry about your loss. Words cannot explain how i feel for you. My deepest condolences to the Family.

My heart goes out to the Gil Family. We were great friends in business and in life. Our world has lost a special gift. You had a way of making difficult situations light with laughter buddy and I know that you are in a place that needs your gifts. God does not make mistakes, we don't have to understand his choices but we must accept them. While I know it is painful, please rest knowing the Chester's spirit will stay with all of us. Nuthin' but Love For You!! DWK

My deepest condolences go out to the entire Gil family. Chester, I loved you like a brother. You were one of my closest and dearest friends. I can't believe you are gone. I know God must have needed you for something very important to take you away from us so soon. I know you are with the angels now and are watching over us. I will miss you dearly from now until we see each other again. To borrow your words. Much Love brother!!!
