Chester J. Bilich, 92, passed away on June 29 at the Ted and Diane Brandley Hospice House of Marion County.  A native of Gallitzin, PA, he moved to this area in 1991 from Michigan. Mr. Bilich was a retired finish carpenter and proudly served his country in the US Navy during WWII.  Chester attended St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Belleview. He loved traveling, was passionate about his garden and was an avid fisherman.  He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his beloved wife of 69 years, Rose, children, Cindy (Howard) Hunt of Otsego, MI, Carl (Cheryl) Bilich, St. Pete, FL, Claudia Jo Blanchard, Omer, MI, Cary (Karen) Bilich, Leland, NC, Carolyn (Mike) Galazka, Romeo, MI, 9 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren. There will be a graveside service at the Resurrection Cemetery in Michigan at a later date. The family has suggested memorials be made in his name to Hospice of Marion County, PO Box 4860, Ocala, FL 34478-4860, in lieu of flowers.

Instead of flowers, the family would prefer if you would make a donation to

    Dear Dad,

    I love you and will miss you so much. Thank you for being such a great Dad to me and Mike and a great grandfather to Joe, Kristen, Brendan and Dylan. You have our love and respect for the person you were and the way you lived your life. You were hard working, honest, generous, loving, and a devoted family man. You were the ruler of my world. May God bless you and keep you. Love, Carolyn
