Chester A. Lee

The man, the myth, the legend

Thee Chet Lee…..The man, the myth, the legend left this spinning rock surrounded by beautiful women giving their undivided attention to him at Geisinger Medical Center, Bloomsburg, PA. He first graced this earth with his presence in North Carolina on March 25, 1956, the son of the late Margaret (Maggie/Margie) Maloney from Danville Pa, who was a fierce as she was beautiful, and 82nd Airborne Robert E. Lee Jr. He was also preceded in death by his Stepfather, the timeless Jim Maloney.

Chester graduated from Danville High School and attended Bloomsburg University.

Chester was an active member of the Rock Run Hunting Club, American Legion Danville Post 40, Freemasons Danville Mahoning Lodge 224, Susquehanna Billiards, his favorite watering hole, Washies Fire Co, Danville and a very proud supporter of the NRA

He worked as a union millwright/turbine mechanic/welder for over 30 years with Local 443. He volunteered at Montour County Sportmens Working for Kids.

Chester enjoyed, being Chet! He even had his own theme song called “The Chester Man” that we are going to miss hearing. He loved being a Pappy and spoiling his grandsons. He loved yelling at the TV when his Raiders played. He loved going to see Penn State football and the college kids loved him back, usually having “drinks” delivered to our seats when they would escape the college section. He enjoyed playing pool and volunteering wherever he was needed. Chet enjoyed posting controversial memes on social media and being in the MAGA club (we all have our flaws). He also enjoyed playing chicken on his Harley with deer with a record of 2-0 that earned him the name, Deer Slayer. He will always be remembered for his red solo cups, the millon laughs and living life to the fullest.

Thank you for being our Dad. Sixty-five years wasn’t long enough, but we are thankful for every moment. In his final act of awesomeness, he was an organ/tissue donor and helped anywhere from 50 to 100 people from his donation.
