Chester Mason was a quiet, gentle, humble man. He possessed the qualities of commitment, loyalty, steadfastness, and honesty. Chester demonstrated commitment by being married to one woman for nearly 65 years. He met the love of his life, Reba, when he was 12, and she was 4. He would hold her hands and walk with her feet on top of his. Now, they are walking hand in hand on streets of gold.

Chester was loyal to his church. He was one of the original members of Calvary Baptist Church and served the same congregation for 42 years as a deacon, a greeter, and a friend to all. During a lot of this time, he kept the altars supplied with tissues, something that he didn't reveal to even his wife.

Chester did nothing in a hurry. Once, when he was working on an assembly line, the foreman kept coming to see if he was finished with a job. Chester told the man, "If you don't like this speed, I know you won't like the other one." He would study a situation from all angles before making a move. He planned and built a room onto his house, totally unaware that you needed a building permit. Chester devised a frame to hoist two 4 x 12 sheets of drywall for the ceiling. He installed them by himself. They're still in place.

Chester was a man of few words. Proverbs 17:27 says, "He that hath knowledge spareth his words." Proverbs 10:31 reads, "The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom." That was Chester; when he did speak, it was something worth heeding. He didn't waste words; his comments were to the point, and often humorous. He would often watch his grandchildren playing but, if they got too rowdy for him, he could stop the action with just one comment. No anger, no yelling, just a few simple words from a gentle grandpa.

When Chester laughed, his eyes would twinkle, his face would light up, and his belly would shake, just like his mother did when she laughed. The way he would say, "I know it," in a conversation, caused you to believe that he was confident of what he knew. Today, we all are confident that we know where Chester Mason is." Image.
