Chester “C.L.” Sayers, of Windsor, passed away on Monday, November 8, 2021, at Russell County Hospital. He was 88 years of age.
Born in Casey County on September 6, 1933, he was a son of the late Hershel and Mattie Watson Sayers. At age 17, he married his sweetheart, Jerrene Brockman, in Jamestown. C.L. never worked a public job, he farmed for himself all his life. C.L. was never a fan of winter, because there was nothing for him to farm. When he was 44 years old, his and Jerrene’s daughter wed, they took her husband as their own son and worked many hard years together. When his grandsons came along, they learned to farm as their grandfather and father did.
C.L. loved the Lord and was a long-time member of Cedar Springs Church. He was known to do anything to help anybody in need, no matter what.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Joyce and Wayne Wilson, of Windsor; his brother, Claude Sayers, of Russell Springs; his two sisters, Levonda Luttrell, of Windsor, and Gay Dick, of Liberty; his grandchildren, Cheston (and Angie) Wilson and Jimmy Wilson, both of Windsor; and his two great-grandchildren, Henry Ethan Wilson and Max Andrew Wilson.
Along with his parents, C.L. is preceded in death by his wife of over 57 years, Jerrene, who he has missed every day since her death on March 13, 2010; his brothers, Wayne Sayers, Jesse Sayers, and Eugene Sayers; his sisters, Olene Johnson and Patricia Sayers; and his great-granddaughter, Caroline Grace Wilson.
