Chester Bartol

July 19, 1928 — January 18, 2022

Chester Alan Bartol, age 93, passed away quietly on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 in Fort Wayne at Visiting Nurse Hospice Home. He was a longtime resident of Warsaw.

Born on July 19, 1928 in Warsaw, Chet, as most knew him, was the son of the late Fred and Lois (Fields) Bartol. He was a 1945 graduate of Warsaw High School and later graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He was also an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Army, serving in the Electrical Warfare Division of the Signal Corps. Professionally, he spent more than 45 years in Orthopaedics as a distributor; he was the owner of Zimmer-Bartol Associates.

As a Purdue alumnus, Chet was a proud Purdue fan. He had run track in high school and while at Purdue and loved to cheer for Boilermaker sports, attending many basketball and football games throughout his life. He also enjoyed golf, travel and card games, especially Bridge. Most importantly, Chet was a generous, easy-going person who rarely complained and loved time spent with his family - of whom he was incredibly proud.

Married on January 9, 1960, Chet and his wife, Shirley recently celebrated their 62nd anniversary. She survives in Warsaw. Also surviving with memories to cherish are five children: Bradley Bartol of Boca Raton, FL, Brian (Holly) Bartol of Fort Wayne, Brenden (Dora) Bartol of Warsaw, Lisa (Dwight) Lueck of Zionsville and Deanna (Joe) Graham of Warsaw; 11 grandchildren: Ashley, Alex, Justin, Elizabeth, Nicole, Keeton, Kyler, Kalista, Madison, Drake and Caden and two great-grandchildren: Braelyn and Cora. He was preceded in passing by two sisters: Lois Ann and Janet.
