He was born on January 6, 1958 to Chester and Yvonne (Schulte) Massino. His father preceded him in death in 2018.

Chester graduated from North Boone High School in Poplar Grove, Illinois in 1976. He attended Waubonsee Community College in Oswego, Ilinois.

Chester had cerebral palsy, but he never let that slow him down. He was football manager for all four years of high school. He played chess and won a trophy at Janesville, Wisconsin. He also was the high school sports reporter for the ‘Belvidere Weekly’ and the ‘Wisconsin Clinton Topper'.

He worked 15 years in our family sporting goods business. His father developed a safety baseball that Chester David named “RagBall”. He traveled the United States along with David Hasselhoff and Tom LaSorda promoting the “RagBall”. He threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the White Sox vs. Oakland A’s game on June 18, 1989.

His greatest love was football and especially the Minnesota Vikings. He was an invited guest and attended training camp at Mankato State University for 37 straight years. His best Viking friend is Mr. Kim Klawiter; director of Viking security. His friend of 37 years Fred Zimberletti who was part of the Viking medical team passed away last year.

His mother survives as well as many friends, family members, and his caregiver and friend; Lisa Nielson.

My son Chester had a real jest for life and gave it all he had to give to anything he tackled. His quick wit and smile will be missed every day!
