        J.        Jaskula
Chester J. Jaskula, 85, of Baldwinsville, passed away on Monday, July 2, 2012, at Crouse Hospital, Syracuse, New York, following a brief illness, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Buffalo, New York, on February 22, 1927, Chester was the son of the late John Jaskula, Sr. and Mildred (Haley) Jaskula. In addition to his parents, he was pre-deceased by his sisters Dolores (Ernst) Faihst and Frances Jaskula, his brother John (Janet) Jaskula Jr. and his grandson George Obad, USMC.

A former long time resident of the Baldwinsville area, Chester had resided until recently in Phoenix, New York. He was a proud Navy veteran of WWII and a former Town of Hamburg police officer. Chet retired in 1983 as an Assistant Traffic Supervisor, for the Syracuse Division of the New York State Thruway Authority. In the early years of his retirement, Chester was a volunteer driver for the Greater Baldwinsville Ambulance Corps. He spent many hours puttering around his workshop. For nearly two decades, Chet and his wife, Henrietta, traveled extensively in their motor home, spending many winters in Ormond Beach, Florida.

Chester is survived by Henrietta, his devoted wife of nearly 62 years; daughters Linda (Dennis) Stimson of Baldwinsville and Elizabeth Obad of Buffalo; son Dennis (Marcia) Jaskula of Phoenix. Grandfather of Jeffrey S. (Debbie) Obad; Edward (Ulonda) Jaskula; Danielle Cunningham; Peter (Kimberly) Jaskula; and Katherine Stimson. Great-grandfather of Nate Cleveland; Paige and Daniel Jaskula; Isabella and Matthew Jaskula; and Jeffrey John Obad. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

There will be no calling hours. Interment at Lakeside Memorial Park in Hamburg, New York, will take place at the convenience of the family.

Grandpa you will be truly missed. You were one of the best men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I always took comfort in knowing you were here to keep the Jaskula men in line and now I know we have one of the best angels watching over all of us. May you rest in peace and know that we will all be here to take care of Grandma. I send you lots of hugs and love. Thank you for being the best Great Grandfather to my children, Grandfather to Ed and I. You truly were the best, and there are no words to express the great loss of your presence in our lives. We are just all thankful to have had such a wonderful man touch our lives as you did. Until we meet again, Love, Ulonda

I am so blessed to have had Chet in my life for over 44 years. He always had the answers to the many questions I asked him. Chuck, who never wanted to go anywhere, really enjoyed spending time with Chet. We shared many lunches. We just went to Danzers a couple weeks ago. Our friendship started when Chet talked Henrietta into going to a Welcome Wagon dinner at the Airport Inn. Chet, I will always have a special plae in my heart for you.waves
