Chester had an amazing love for his family.  He was a devoted husband.  He was a caring father and his children cherished the love that he gave. He also enjoyed his family dogs.  He loved to tell stories of his past because that was what molded him into the man that he was.  He was able to take those moments of his life and learn how to do almost anything.  He was very good at fixing things.  He rebuilt tractors and cars.  One of his hobbies was fishing.  Chester was very active at his church, Ozark Baptist Church. He served as deacon, trustee, helped remodel the church, was a Sunday school teacher and did a lot of maintenance for the church.  He was a man that loved people and loved visiting and building relationships.  He was very proud of his service to his country in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Survivors include: Chester's wife June Cox; a son Eddie Cox and a daughter Teresa Cox; a sister Nola Harris; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
