In his spare time, Chet enjoyed spending time with his family. He also enjoyed watching Detroit Tiger baseball, gardening and playing horseshoes. He was a member of Gaylord Eagles #1825.

Surviving is Pat, his wife of 58 years; his daughters, Cherie Borowiak of Vanderbilt and Laurie (Jim) Schleicher of Traverse City; grandsons, Zachary and Nicholas Schleicher of Traverse City; his sister, Romaine Baumgardner of Gaylord; his sisters and brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews and other extended family.

Chet was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Theresa Ralston; and a brother, Tony Borowiak. He will be buried with his beloved dog, Toby, who also preceded him in death.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM Wednesday, January 19, 2022, at Gaylord Community Funeral Home & Cremation Service where visitation with the family will begin at 12:00 noon.
