Chester Leroy Miller, 86, of Virginia Beach, was called to his heavenly home Friday, Feb. 28, 2020.
Chester was born in Rock Prairie, Missouri, to the late J. Horace Miller and Georgia Marie Chapman. He served honorably in the U.S. Army before settling in Missouri.
He leaves behind the love of his life, MaryAnn. They were blessed to share nearly 55 years of marriage. Chester was the senior vice president of Citizens State Bank in Nevada, Missouri, for 32 years. Then, he and MaryAnn enjoyed life on the lake for 20 years in their retirement home in the Ozark Mountains, later moving to Virginia Beach in 2015 to be near family. A devoted follower of Christ, Chester was always active in his local church serving in such capacities as deacon and Sunday school teacher.
Left behind to cherish his memory are his loving wife, MaryAnn; children, Lisa Salser, and her husband, Kevin, and Lana Shumaker, and her husband, Gary; grandson, Matthew Shumaker, and his wife, Holly; and sister, Velma Stevens. He was preceded in death by a brother, John Miller.
A memorial service in celebration of a life well lived will be held at 11 a.m., Wednesday, March 4, at London Bridge Baptist Church, 2460 Potters Road, Virginia Beach, with Pastor Greg Brinson officiating.
