Chester Arthur Myers

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Duncan MacVicar on August 4, 2005:

Chet Myers was the nicest guy you?ll ever meet, with a constant positive attitude and a pleasant word for everyone. He was soft-spoken, yet he persevered and seemed to excel in just about everything. His modesty extended even to the times that he would wipe up the tennis court with a hapless classmate.

Chet had a fabulous, rich singing voice. Who can forget his ?Sound of Music? solo? This fellow Glee Club member never will.

He was a selfless man?like the time in our first class year when he dedicated a Saturday afternoon to teaching several slower classmates to pace themselves through the mile run of the PT test.

Chet was gracious, giving energy to others rather then taking it from them. Listen to what his classmates have to say:
He was a truly nice man. ? Bob Doughty
A totally great guy who always remained in my heart. ? Steve Olson
Every time I hear an excellent tenor I think of Chet. ? Pat Kenny
Chet was a giver in every way. ? John Vann
I was honored to have him as a friend. ? Gordon Larson

All of our lives are richer for having known him. He loved all of us, and we love him still. We miss you, Chet.
