Mr. Charles Brown “Chuck” Chesser III, 63, beloved husband of Cheryl Anne Chesser and a resident of Onley, walked graciously into the arms of his Lord and Savior Sunday, May 26, 2019, with his loving family by his side.

Born Oct. 7, 1955, in Nassawadox and a native of Willis Wharf, he was the son of the late Charles Brown Chesser II and the late Marion Phillips Chesser. 

Mr. Chesser served his country in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War and then began his career in law enforcement. Over the years, he worked on patrol for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, and after more than 20 years with NASA, he retired as their chief of security. Following retirement, Mr. Chesser began working for Walmart and soon became their jack-of-all trades. He was a licensed ham radio operator, a scout master for the Boy Scouts of America for eight years, and was a devoted member of Baptist Bible Church. Mr. Chesser was invaluable to his family, his church, his community, and to his various career posts. He will be greatly missed for his dedication to all and for the positivity that followed him everywhere he went.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by their two sons, Michael Jason Chesser and Brandon Charles Chesser; grandson, Wyatt Charles Chesser; mother-in-law, Carolyn Doiron; sister-in-law, Donna Hinman and her husband, Peter; special niece, Crystal Harris, whose love and compassion was felt, both personally and professionally, through her skills as a registered nurse; and many other extended family, church family and friends.
