Obituary for Chester Albert

Chester Albert
-Chester L. Albert passed away at his home after a long battle with cancer. Chet was
born on Jan 10, 1929 in Watford City, N.D., however he lived his early years in Brockton and
Kalispell where he enlisted in the Air Force serving until August of 1947.
While visiting relatives in Watford City, NO, Chet met Auverne Hagen. They started their romance and married on July 9th, 1948. They moved to Kalispell, Montana, where their son Gale was born. A
couple years later, they moved to Tuscor, Mt. where Chet worked on the Noxon Reservoir. .
From Tuscor, they moved to Missoula, It was about this time that he started his logging career
and a few years later in 1964, Chet bought a brand new Autocar logging truck. He continued to
log for most of the rest of his life, owning his own company. While always having a passion for
the work he did, Chet decided to take an early retirement at the age of 70. However, even after
retiring he still couldn't get away from the work he loved, and often could be found operating
equipment for local forest fires, such as the 2007 Black Cat fire in Evaro.
He will long be remembered for being tough ... but honest in his work and loving all of his family.
He was always the first to lend a helping hand and the last to leave the jobsite and we will
remember him always as the best example of a good man.
Preceding Chet in death were his parents; Verna and Harold Albert, Step-father, Stanton Wolfe,
brother, Richard and sister, Fern and son in law, Dan Breslin.
Chet is survived by his wife, Auverne, brother, Darrel (Sheila) Albert, son, Gale (Judy) Albert,
daughters; Jolene Winchell, Susan (Dale) Truett, grandchildren; Mark (Carla) Albert, April (John)
Larocque, Charlie Winchell, Sarah Winchell, Spencer Truett, Kelly Truett, Tanner Truett, and
great grandchildren; Ashley (Gage) Brumwell, Kaurie Albert, Easton Albert, Jaylee Albert and
Kyler and Kaden Larocque, along with numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Funeral Services will be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church 830 South Ave W on May 13, 2017
at 3:00pm. Condolences for Chester’s family may be left at www.sunsetfuneralhomecemetery.com
