The most memorable times I have with my Uncle Chet is when he dressed up in his clown outfit and came to visit my son Dustin and my daughter Amber when they were very young. ( I believe they were 4 or 5 and 2 or 3 years of age. He came to a birthday party I was throwing. They didn't know what to think at first, but, then they had a blast with him. The second best memory was when I was in the hospital and he walked through the door with balloons and dressed up in his clown outfit. I remember being extremely happy when he surprised me. He also taught me what to do in being a Den Leader for boy scouts when I got elected to be one for my son's Tiger Cub club. He was an awesome Uncle and very active person throughout his life. He was and still is an awesome person. I love you, Uncle Chet!
