My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Chet on several occasions. Last year, He welcomed us to camp and we were able to enjoy the Adirondacks, play some cards & we met some really good people. It was a memorable experience for us. We are truly blessed to know and love his son Shawn, Jessica, & Connor. Our condolences to the entire family. He was one of a kind.
