In Memoriam Armine F. Heinz 1/11/2022  
Lt. Col. Armine F. Heinz, Jr., US Army, Retired, passed away in NY on January 11, 2022 after a long struggle with health issues. He served 11 years active duty in the US Army and was stationed in Korea, Germany, Maryland and Kentucky, then served 18 years in the Army Reserves in New York. His service started with the Vermont National Guard, which he joined while attending Norwich University in Vermont.

While at Norwich University, he was part of the Norwich Mountain Rescue and Survival Team. After graduation in 1964, he was an engineer with Petricca Construction for a time and helped build highways in Massachusetts. While serving active duty with the US Army in Heidelberg, Germany, he learned to speak German and met his beautiful bride of 55 years, Renate. They married in Heidelberg, Germany in October 1966 at a monastery by the same monk who married Renate's parents and twin sister. They moved between Germany and the US a few times with the Army. Their daughter, Ingrid, was born in Heidelberg, and their son, Stefan, was born in North Adams, Massachusetts while Armine was deployed to Korea. The family moved to Kentucky with the Army in 1974, and Armine was honorably discharged from active duty in 1975. He then joined the Army Reserves to continue his service to his country. He worked at Con Edison in New York from 1975-1998, retiring in March 1998 after many years at the Con Ed Learning Center, teaching automotive repair, CPR and safety classes and made many friends at Con Ed. Armine also ran his own side-business for many years, teaching automotive mechanics and defensive driving at night and on weekends, so that he could achieve his goal of retiring early.

Armine loved to travel with his family and friends, including camping in the US, taking cruises, and traveling to Europe and many Caribbean islands. He was always ready for a trip! He was an avid skier and taught his children and nieces to ski, and encouraged his children to teach their children (his grandchildren) to ski to continue the family sport. Armine was an active member of the Bavarian Club Edelweiss of Westchester and enjoyed regular gatherings with his friends there. He was also a member of the American Legion post in Ossining, NY. He always had a positive attitude, no matter the circumstances. He considered events to be "challenges and opportunities", and when you asked him how he is doing, he replied "so good it's incredible!"

Armine was born in Adams, Massachusetts on December 19, 1941, to Armine F. Heinz and Helen (nee Paciorek). He was fortunate to recently celebrate his 80th birthday and 55th wedding anniversary. He is survived by his loving wife, Renate (nee Megerle), daughter Ingrid Heinz Adams (Bryan), son Stefan (Michelle), four grandchildren (Spencer Adams, Tyler Heinz, Parker Adams, Marissa Heinz), his sister Diane Freitag of Cheshire, MA, nieces Sheri Lancaster and Sue Burke, and cousins. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends!

In Memoriam Guy K. Chester 6/25/2021  
Guy King Chester, of Sun City West, AZ, was born and raised in Pittsfield, MA, the son of Frederick Chester and Ruth Houseman Chester. There he met and married the love of his life, and eternal love, Mary Kay Cunningham Chester, who preceded him in death after 54 years of marriage.

Guy took great joy in his family; his son William J. Chester, who preceded him in death, daughter-in-law Roberta Chester, grandchildren Katelyn, Billy, Michael and Joseph Chester, daughter Jennifer Chester, and grandchildren Remi, Lila and Nolan Chester. Guy's brother Frederick Jr., sister-in-law Kathleen, and niece Karen Chester preceded him in death. He is survived by nieces Diana Chester Kirby and Vicky Chester Turner. Guy is also survived by lifelong friend and chosen brother, Bob Ryan.
Guy spent his decades long career with Pfizer pharmaceuticals. He called Pittsford, NY, and the greater Rochester area, home for many years before becoming a resident of Sun City West.

He was an avid tennis player before taking up golf. He enjoyed the camaraderie, the effort to improve, and let the occasional frustrations go with ease. Guy focused on the positives in everything he did, and never failed to look on the bright side.
Guy made a point of asking every one their name, and using it. He never complained, always wanted to make things easier for other people, and met life's sorrows with grace. He was a kind and generous man.

Guy was a man of great Faith, trusting in God's plan for his family, despite enduring the most difficult losses of his beloved wife MaryKay and son Bill. Guy had a deep admiration for his parish priests in New York, Arizona, and Virginia. He would always marvel at the truth and wisdom from their homilies, dedication to their parishioners and was truly grateful for every Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Guy's Catholic Faith, devotion to the Mass and Sacraments, and the Rosary all guided and comforted him, especially in his later years.

The family will receive friends on Friday, July 30, 2021, at Moser Funeral Home, 233 Broadview Ave., Warrenton, Virginia 20186 from 6-8pm with the Recitation of the Holy Rosary at 7:30pm.
