Chester served his country in the Navy during WWII.  In 1965 he founded Key-State Automotive Warehouse with his brothers Maury and Jerry.  Chester loved to dance, and also listen and talk politics.  In his earlier days he was an avid traveler and in his later years he took up painting-by-number and became quite good at it.  He was a kind and generous man who was always ready to help those in need.

Due to COVID-19, the service for Chester Wolkowitz will be a private family service.
