I was saddened to learn of Chester Critchfield’s passing. To Grant and Steve and Mrs. Critchfield I offer my condolences along with a prayer for comfort and peace. I was one of many kids that went to Chester’s camps back in the day, like Camp Indian Hollow. Everything of his I took part in had a positive influence on my life, so much so I still recount camp experiences to friends and family. Chester was “the man” in that time and place, and I will forever value the memories and experiences I had because of him.
