Chet took a job with Connecticut Light and Power, alongside his older brother, John. While Chet and Ann never had children of their own, they often were seen with their nieces and nephews at outings, vacations, and parties.

He is survived by his brother Walt, and his many nieces and nephews, brothers and sister-in-law Joseph and Judy Adams and Stephen Adams; along with close friends, the Hryniewicz’s. He was grateful to all his family for their love and support and special care from nieces Frannie Jones and Nancy Sheridan for their home care. The family would like to thank the nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians and all the staff at St. Francis Hospital who most recently cared for Chet.
