Chester Melvin White
World War II Veteran

Born June 2, 1922 West Virginia
Died August 13, 1972 Ohio
Buried Oct 14th 1972 in Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery, Bedford Heights, Cleveland, Ohio

At the time of his death, officials were unable to locate his family, so he was buried in a paupers grave. At the same time, his family was searching for him. After years of searching for him, we finally found records that he had died and was buried in a Paupers grave in this cemetery on Oct. 14th, 1972. His family has since obtained the military marker which he deserved as a HIGHLY decorated WWII veteran. My family paid to have the tombstone placed. (He was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Good Conduct medal and a purple heart.)

From the 1930 Census:
Son of William and Bertie (Berta Jane Pickett) White [daughter of Cordelia Pickett]. Brother of Harvey, Walter, Dorothy, Evelyn, Sylvia and Charles.
