It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Edward Glen (Ned) Chester, who left us on Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at the age of 67 years, surrounded by his family and their love.
Ned was born on Aug. 28, 1950 and grew up near Fort Macleod. He moved to Calgary in his twenties where he found his true love, Sue, and together, they raised three wonderful boys.
After retiring in March 2016, Ned continued to enjoy visiting with family, friends and neighbours, spending time with Carson and Brielle, camping with his family, big game hunting, travelling and most recently working on his new hobby, knife-making.
Ned’s positive outlook and warm and friendly smile will be fondly remembered by his family and the countless people who consider Ned a true friend.
Ned was the cherished husband of Sue Chester (nee Taylor); loving father of Dustin, Cody (Lindsay) and Travis; as well as “Grandpa Ned” to Carson and Brielle — all of Calgary. Ned will also be sadly missed by his father Raymond, brother Dennis (Cheryl) and sister-in-law Denise. Ned was also the much loved son-in-law of Harvey and Alice Taylor and brother-in-law to Bryan (Elaine), Don (Maureen), Tim (Arlene) and Pam (Tyler), and uncle to many nieces and nephews.
Ned was predeceased by his mother Ellen and brother Don.
Memorial services will be held at McInnis and Holloway Funeral Homes (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary) on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at 2:30 p.m. Reception to follow at the funeral home.
