Age 89, originally of Heidelberg, currently of Lighthouse Point, FL. Devoted husband of 65 years
to Margaret Krawczynski (DeMarco); loving father of Fran (John) Flynn, Susan (Irv) Goldstein,
Gloria (Mike) Riedl and the late Bernadine (Tim) McMahon; proud grandfather of Douglas
(Nikki) McMahon, Michael (Monica) McMahon, Brian (Girlfriend Katheryn) McMahon, Alex
(Fiancé Aileen) Goldstein, and his precious Stephanie Goldstein; great-grandfather of Adaline,
James, Ethan, Jude, Adia, Ian Chester. Preceded in death by 8 siblings.
Chester was a hardworking man— witty, smart, a bit quirky and a man of integrity and honesty.
He taught his daughters the meaning of strength of character, kindness toward others, a good
work ethic, the love of God, Family and Country, thankfulness for whatever they had, and the
importance of standing up for what is right. To his family, He was the greatest husband, dad,
pap, G-pap and uncle ever; a friend and a helpful neighbor. He loved his family above all and
provided a happy and loving atmosphere where you were always either dancing to polkas or
eating a home cooked meal and everyone was always welcomed.
He retired from Universal Cyclop Steel, and was a Korean War veteran and Purple Heart
recipient, Chester was a Heidelberg volunteer fireman and he loved gardening, soccer,
photography, FaceTiming his family, and was a lifetime member of the American Legion.
Chester was a shining example of what a man, a husband and a father should be.
Rest in Peace — We know you are in the arms of Jesus and are reunited with your number one
daughter, Bernadine. We miss you both so much.
