Mr. Chester Czyz of Oswego, IL passed away peacefully March 25, 2021 at the Grant Center in Williamstown, KY at the age of 89 years old. Chester was born July 6, 1931 in Cook County, Chicago, IL to the late Maria Grokowski and Anthony Czyz, immigrants from Poland. Chester was very proud of his Polish heritage.

When Chester was a toddler he contacted scarlet fever which caused him to become hard of hearing and eventually profoundly Deaf.

On August 11, 1956 Chester was united in marriage to Norma Joyce Hubbard for 64 years. He is survived by daughters Lillian Cheri Orbke and husband Frederick William Orbke of Cortez, Colorado and Eliza Dolly McNamara and husband John McNamara of Dry Ridge, KY, and his siblings Jeanette Rajca and husband Pastor Ronald Rajca of Chinle, AZ and Thomas Czyz and wife Wendy Czyz of Falmouth, ME. His 3 grandsons, John McNamara of Madison, MO, Phillip McNamara of Montgomery, IL, and Ian Orbke of Santa Fe, NM, along with great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews, and friends.

Chester Czyz was a baker and foreman for 40 years with Silvercup Baking Company and National Baking Company as well as being a self taught jack of all trades and did it all with excellence. Strong and dependable Chester served the Polish National Catholic Church for 30 years doing maintenance from caring for the grounds to maintaining the interior of the church. His interests included history, travel, playing cards, reading the newspaper, going to the Deaf Club and being an artist. He loved to draw and paint.

He was a gift to everyone who knew him. Friendship, laughter, fun and good times. Caring, loving and kindhearted. He will be dearly missed. His memory is our keepsake.

Chester was a man who I am proud to say was my brother. He was deeply devoted to his family, kind and caring to those around him, always willing to help. He was a hard-worker committed to completing the task at hand with the utmost quality. Though a twenty-year difference in our age, Chester always treated me as one would hope, with love and understanding. I will dearly miss him.

My Dad, Chester, was a gift to everyone who knew him. Friendship, laughter, fun and good times. Caring, loving and kindhearted. He will be dearly missed. His memory is our keepsake.
Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.

Condolences to the entire Czyz family, one of the most hardest working men I witnessed in my life. I witnessed his work ethic every time I drove by the church, week after week, year after year.
May he now rest in peace.
