Gilbert "Chuckie" Wayne Vest

March 12, 1951 - May 30, 2021

Chucky Vest ended this chapter of life and headed towards a new one on Sunday, May 30, 2021. He loved his music, his smoke and his drink. He was a master wood refinisher and enjoyed playing many bluegrass instruments, of which he had quite a collection. Chuck loved his large family including aunts, uncles, cousins, many nieces and nephews, and siblings. He was preceded in death by his mom, dad, step-dad, a sister and a brother in law. He is survived by 2 sisters and 2 brothers. Spouses of immediate family members are numerous and he welcomed them all. Although Chucky had things to overcome, he enjoyed a simple life, helped those in need when he could and maintained his independence to live his way at his home. A special and heartfelt thanks to the Hospice and Nursing Home staff as well as to all those that made his life worth living. We will all miss you but know that you are suffering no longer, enjoy the freedom! Funeral Services will be Thursday June 3, 2021 at 11 AM at Gardner Funeral Home.
