    Our heartfelt condolences go out to Chet’s entire family. It is so difficult saying goodbye to a life-long close friend and teammate (Football, Basketball, and Baseball) and all our Melrose memories.
    Rest in peace, Chet (“Kaspa”)!

    Very sad to hear of Chet’s passing. He was a great 3 sport athlete at Melrose High School and excelled in all 3. He quarterbacked Melrose to the State Title in 1959. He was class president his senior year & received the Scholar Athlete award as well. Chet received a full football scholarship to Colgate and was drafted by the San Diego Chargers minor league affiliate.
    We played baseball together for the Stoneham Legion. Chet was a great teammate and fierce competitor. We chummed around together and became life long fiends. I lost a great friend – Rest in peace Chet.

    I was surprised to learn of Chet’s passing. I knew him at Colgate. A stand up guy. Tough as nails and not a mean bone his body. I am so pleased to see all he has done and how he was loved by so many. Truly a good man.

  9. Richard Minzner says:

    I was shocked to see Chet’s obituary. Condolences to his family. He seemed well and in good spirits when I saw him and Marilyn (together with Dick and Joan Kelliher) at an MHS ‘61 reunion several years ago. I remember him as a good guy, good student and good athlete, better than me at every sport (except chess). I had hoped to see him again if we had another reunion. I know his family and many others will miss him.
