  2. Suzanne Suffern condolence:

    My dear, dear Uncle Chester, my favourite Uncle. How I loved you so much! I will miss you beyond words and miss coming to see you for your birthdays on 9/17 and bringing you some Polish delacasies from the Polish stores. I will always remember the many stories of your childhood, funny stories of relatives that are no longer with us and your time in the Army. You were and will always be “one in a million”. I am a much better person for having you in my life for 57 years and I will never forget you and will love you forever. May God rest your soul for all eternity.


    Your niece,

    For all of the Doroba, and extended family. We are so sad to hear of Chester’s Passing. I only met him once, but that was enough to realize what a man he was. I wish I could have heard more of his war stories. We will be remembering, and thanking him for his service on this coming Memorial Day.

    Our deepest sympathy To Theresa & Dean and all the family. We couldn’t have had a better neighbor than Chester and we will never forget him. We treasured our conversations and his kindliness. He was like a 2nd Grandfather to our daughter in her young years. We will think of him every time we look at the Rose of Sharon bush in our yard that he shared with us while gardening his beautiful yard. God bless him. We will keep you all in our prayers and thoughts.
