Montie Earl Chesser

June 15, 1959March 30, 2019

Montie “Earl” Chesser, age 59, of Elizabethton, Tennessee, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at his beloved home. He was born in Carter County, Tennessee.

Earl enlisted in the United States Army at the age of 18, and devoted 4 years to serving our country. After retirement from the armed forces, Earl returned to Carter County to pursue his career, and natural talent as a Diesel Mechanic. Earl was a ‘Good Ol’ Country Boy” in every sense of the term. It didn’t matter if Earl was fishing, shooting guns, or driving around enjoying the natural beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, he was always enjoying life’s simplest pleasures.

He is survived by his only child who was his pride and joy, Amanda Thrift also known as Brute or Bae throughout her childhood years; his former spouse, Cindy Chesser; five brothers, M.D. Chesser, Robert Benfield, Dale Benfield, Alan Benfield, and Danny Ray Benfield; six sisters, Peggy Hicks, Unise Hicks, Louse Blevins, Connie Henry, Willma Benfield, and Mary Sparks, who all reside in East Tennessee.

Earl will continue to be loved and forever missed by his family, friends, and beloved cat, Noodles.

A Committal Service and Inurnment will be held at 1:45PM Friday, April 12, 2019 at Mountain Home National Cemetery with military honors to be rendered by the Boone Dam VFW Post #4933.
