Obituary for Chester Nuels, Sr

On February 1, 1952, C.D. and Perry Lee Nuels welcomed their seventh child into the world. They named their dynamic bundle of joy Chester, a name meaning "fortified camp." Chester grew up with his family in sunny Avondale, Arizona, attending Avondale Elementary and Agua Fria High School where he was the President of his Spanish class, a language he spoke fluently. Chester also attended Barber college, but later moved to Denver, CO where he married Jeannetta Lilly and fathered three beautiful children, Lyndell, Chester Jr., and Latoya Nuels.
Chester was a doting and attentive father. His children relished in his love and time spent with him. Before "family game night was cool", this man had fun in the bag! Memories were forged visiting Celebrity's Sport Complex or being one with nature on fishing and camping trips. At home, he taught the kids how to play checkers and chess, a game where the students sometimes beat the master! No doubt, while playing thinking games like Scrabble and Monopoly, the children were able to learn important life lessons from their father.
Chester did not stay in Colorado for too long and eventually went out to California where he discovered yet another talent and gift in the field and art of upholstery. When he returned to Colorado this was the career he settled into. He worked from Kirk Manufacturing for a while but enjoyed upholstery so much he began doing it from his basement and helped reupholster the furniture of many friends and family.
Known for dressing sharp and looking good, he sometimes called himself "Dr. C, the Love Doctor!" He loved a lot of things, like working hard and enjoying the fruits of his rewards. He sometimes shared "these fruits" with friends when he held gatherings to play Dominoes, Spades, Bid Whist, or Tonk. He liked to cook, BBQ being a mainstay, and maybe drink a little Seagram's Gin. As time went on he really enjoyed spending time and spoiling his 14 grand-children, and later his 9 great-grands, the added twinkle to his eye.
Chester fell asleep in death on October 14, 2018. He is preceded in death by his parents, C.D. and Perry Lee Nuels, his brothers, C.D., Lee, and Manning Nuels. He leaves to cherish his memory two sons, Lyndell and Chester Jr., one daughter, Latoya Nuels, one brother David Nuels, six sisters, Myrtle Malloy, Dorothy Mann, Perry Lee(Honey) Nuels, Sandy Nuels, Debra Nuels, and Barbara Clark; 14 grandchildren, Trevion McKenzie, Marquis Daniels, Lyndell Daniels, Jr., Maurice Daniels, Shaniqua Nuels, Tierra Thompson, NaJae Nuels, Lia Daniels, Jalisa Daniels, Ashayia Nuels, Kaleah Williams, ChesaRay Nuels, SunRay Nuels, 9 great-grandchildren, and a host of other deeply cherished and loved ones.
