I worked with Chester one summer for the Wichita Eagle selling subscriptions across Kansas.  He wanted to be a preacher so he shied away from the hijinks.  He belonged to the Evangelical United Brethren Church and used their teachings as conversational points, whipping the name out in practised surety...

Chester and I sat across from each other in the 4th grade.  Through the years I have often thought about him. My sympathy to his family.

Chester and I were debate team partners our senior year.  He was very passionate about the challenge as he was always well prepared and articulate.  We actually placed fourth  in our first tournament. Very saddened to learn of his passing.

I remember Alvin, especially at Martinson Elementary.  He was sometimes teased, and I felt a bit sorry for him.  I know he chose to become a pastor, suitable for an intelligent, caring young man.  After learning he was not coming to our 50th reunion, I looked up and wrote down his home address, PLANNING to call and perhaps visit him some time.  That "some time" is now gone.  It's another reminder that we must take the time we now have to share with others.   Ella Lehl Frederick

I just read about Chester Rose.  I don't see the paper anymore, except for Sundays so didn't realize that he had passed away.  I saw him last time at the Dodge dealership while having work done on our van.  that had to be last fall, and we talked a while, but i could see he was failing then.  I used to go to church with him as we were growing up, so have know him since we were little kids in Sunday School.  Our paths crossed again at Allison Jr. High and West high, but we never were real close, but i always liked talking to him.  He had a religious outlook for everything and there is no doubt that he was a good Christian man.  RIP Chester and hope to see you in heaven.

I never dreamed Chester had become a minister, looks like he lived a good life and was a man of God.  Thank you whoever shared his obituary.
