Chester Leon "Chet" Faith, Sr
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 23, 1918
Louisville
Jefferson County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Jul. 26, 1966
Jefferson County
Kentucky, USA

Commonly known by a nickname of "Chet."
Chester was a son of William O. Faith, Sr. (1886-1928) & Minnie J. Steepleton (1888-1969).
Chester married Rebecca E. Burroughs (1915-1982) on January 13, 1940 in Clarksville, Clark Co., Indiana. They had five identified children.
Chester's obituary fails to report a surviving son, Perry A. Faith. Appears to be an oversight by the obituary informant.
Based on public records, the surviving daughter (Sallie)reported in his obituary was not a biological daughter of Chester. Her surname reported as "Barnett" in a Kentucky birth index.
Chester was a veteran of World War II.
