Obituary of Chester Stuckey, Sr.
On Saturday, July 9, 2022, Chester H. Stuckey Sr. passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his loving family at the age of 78.
Chester was born on June 28, 1944 in Russellton, PA to Charles and Bessie (Divelbiss) Stuckey. He grew up in Russellton and spent most of his career in the coal mine in Russellton. On August 31, 1964 he married Kathleen Rose Deoss and together they raised six children.
Few things brought Chester more joy than spending the day surrounded by family and friends and spending the days in the woods hunting or on the lake fishing. Whether he was sitting in the woods teaching his children and grandchildren to hunt, on the lake with a fishing pole in hand, or cooking Sunday breakfast for the family, his laughter was always in the air.
Chester was preceded in death by his father, Charles, his mother, Bessie, and his sister, Darlene. He is survived by his wife Kathleen, his sister Charlotte (James) Foster, his six children Pamela (Richard) Pivik, Curt Stuckey, Chester (Leighann) Stuckey Jr., Susan Stuckey, Charles Stuckey, Amanda (Justin) Vegso, his eight grandchildren, Tiffany, Dean, Amber, Justin, Ariel, Rachel, Samantha, and Shawn, and his nine great grandchildren, Evangelina, Amelia, Elizabeth, Brian, Hayden, Abel, Oliver, Maddox, and Hazel.
No funeral services will be held as per Chester’s request. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to Heartland Hospice Care at 750 Holiday Dr. Foster Plaza Suite 110 Pittsburgh, PA 15220.
