Obituary

Donavon W. Chester, 83 of Aurora and Westmont, married for 61 years to his beloved college sweetheart, Judy.  

He graduated from Aurora College in 1958 and worked for over 60 years as a respected accountant in Aurora, Illinois, loving his clients as well as the job itself. He was an example and teacher of kindness, selflessness, grace, dignity, and most of all love for his family and all who were lucky enough to have crossed paths with him.

Husband of Judith (nee Schenk), father of Wendy (Kevin) Roe, Nancy (Gary) Knickerbocker, William Chester (Desmond Acosta), and Amy (Matthew) Wols; grandfather of Bryan, Bradley, Zachary, and Lauren; and great-grandfather of Stellan, Caedman and Brighton and brother of Marcia Doemland and the late George Chester. Don created a family almost large enough to receive all the love he had to give. This, however, was impossible, and the remainder overflowed onto all those who were blessed with the opportunity to make his acquaintance.

His friends and family will miss him dearly, but take solace in the knowledge that he may now rest in peace.

Visitation on Tuesday, June 18th, from 10:00 a.m. until the time of memorial service at 12:00 p.m. at Healy Chapel, 332 Downer Place, Aurora, Illinois.
