HOLLYWOOD, SC - Lt. Commander Chester Francis Broton, US Navy (Ret.), 85, of Hollywood, South Carolina, widower of Christine Prentiss Broton, entered into eternal rest Sunday, December 2, 2012. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday, December 7, 2012 in St. Mary's Catholic Church, 4255 Highway 165, Yonges Island at 11:00 am. The Prayers of Final Commendation and Farewell will be held at Christ-St. Paul's Cemetery, Yonges Island with military honors. The family will receive friends Thursday from 5:00 until 7:00 pm with a Fleet Reserve Two Bell Ceremony at 7:00 pm in J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. West Ashley Chapel, 3360 Glenn McConnell Parkway, Charleston. Chester was born December 2, 1927 in Syracuse, New York, son of Eugene E. Broton and Mary Jaroszewicz Broton. He was a retired Lt. Commander with the United States Navy and served in World War II, Korean and Vietnam wars. Chester Broton was the CO of the USS Perigrine (Experimental Fleet Minesweeper, EMSF-373 ) that was used in a lot of our projects when Bill Roberts and I were at Key West Test & Evaluation Detachment. Chester was a designated MNSN when he first went in the Navy and was selected for the Officer Integration Program, which was a ‘straight line’ program. I don’t know where he may have served as an MNSN before going off to OCS. He was a Life member of American Legion Post 112, Branch #50 Fleet Reserve, V.F.W. 5091, Military Officers Association of America, Soloman Lodge #1 AFM, Scottish Rite Shrine and was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church. He is survived by his son, Chester F. Broton, Jr. and his wife Holly; two grandsons, Michael C. Broton and Travis M. Broton both of Charleston; a brother, Philip E. Broton of Syracuse, N.Y..
