DAVIDSON, Chester Harris MacIntosh - December 4, 1926 – August 13, 2010 - Mr. Chester Davidson of Calgary, beloved husband, father and grandfather, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, August 13, 2010. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 44 years, Nettie, his sons, Kevin (Angela) and Stan; his grandchildren Sergio and Analena; and his five siblings, Wes (Leona); Darrell (Yvonne); Joyce; Ron (Pat); Ruth (Keith) as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Chester was predeceased by his parents, Willard and Gladys; his brother Gordon; and sister Jean. Chester was born in Three Hills, Alberta on December 4, 1926. Having had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home, he accepted the Lord as his Savior at an early age. In his younger years Chester worked on the farm, at the coal mine with his Dad and attended Bible School at Prairie Bible College. Frequent visits to the Three Hills Hospital resulted in meeting nurse, Nettie Siebert, and they were married on August 20, 1966. Chester was actively involved in the community serving on Town Council for many years and on various boards and committees. In 2000, they moved to Calgary where he continued to serve in the community and his local church. Chester's deep faith in God, his entrepreneurial spirit and his sense of humor are what shaped him into the man he was. He dearly loved his family and friends (especially his grandchildren) and often traveled many miles to stay connected. He was a man of Godly character who left us a legacy on how to live life to the fullest. Dad will be deeply missed by all whose lives he touched. A graveside service will be held at the Three Hills Cemetery on Wednesday, August 18 at 10:00am. A memorial service will follow at 2:30pm at Foothills Alliance Church (333 Edgepark Blvd NW) in Calgary.
