John Andrew Chester

John Andrew Chester, Jr was born in Altus, OK, December 16, 1955 to John and Barbara Sue (Lake) Chester. He was the second of six children who grew up a normal, healthy boy; tormenting his older sister while teasing and picking on his younger siblings. Despite his antics (which by the way never changed), Johnny grew up and went to work at various jobs. Johnny married and divorced Caroline Jennings and later married and divorced Gail Burkeen. Johnny, like all of us, made some unwise choices in his lifetime; some of which are the reason we are mourning today. However, Johnny would say not to mourn for him but to remember the good times and the laughs you could always count on when he was around because his good humor and teasing never failed to make an appearance. Johnny was always willing to lend a hand to anyone needing help as well; he will be missed by both family and friends.
