Chester was a fine man and a good neighbor.
Very friendly person to talk with and helpful if he could be.
He will be missed by all who knew him.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the Morley family. I've known them all my entire life and always admired them for their dedication to family and community. Chet was an inspiration to many and will be missed.
