Virgil Lee Chester

January 5, 1957 — November 7, 2022

Virgil Lee Chester, age 65, of Moberly, MO, passed away on November 7, 2022, at his home in Marceline.

“Pops” was born on January 5, 1957, in Kansas City, MO, to Calvin Chester and Doris Elaine Phillips Admire. Virgil honorably served his country in the United States Navy from 1974 to 1980 as Petty Officer 3rd Class.

He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Laclede, MO and enjoyed his time as a volunteer at Pioneer Nursing playing cards and talking about time in the war with his friends. He married "his love, for the last 33 years" Mary Million in September 1989 in Moberly, MO.

His family and friends will always remember him as a fun loving, insightful, open-hearted, God Loving man. He was the best dancer ever, enjoyed playing spades, kayaking with his son-in-law, attending auctions, collecting knives, and always had to have a gallon of gravy with his breakfast. He most enjoyed talking about his love Mary and about the 13 dogs he befriended during his life.

He is preceded in death by his love, Mary Chester; father, Calvin Chester; mother, Doris Elaine Phillips; and sisters, Sharon Admire and Roseanne Chester.
