Chester Anthony Wienckowski May 26, 1924 - May 1, 2021

Chester Anthony Wienckowski, 96, born May 26, 1924 passed away peacefully at home May 1, 2021.  He was the husband of the late Ruth M. (Lambert-Heiberger) Wienckowski. Chet was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was unfailingly kind and good natured. His sense of humor could not be matched, and his life was a blessing to all who knew him. Chet’s anointed and powerful prayers parted the clouds and opened Heaven’s gates to reach the throne of God. A man of strong faith, Chet served as a deacon at Calvary Temple and Cornerstone Fellowship Assembly of God. He also served on the Allentown Christian School Board. In later years, he was a member of Emmanuel Assembly of God. During World War II the Marines Corps was his choice of military service from 1943-1945. Chet proudly served his country in the Panama Canal and shared many interesting stories with his family and friends. Chet joined the PA State Police in 1946 and served 28 years. Upon retiring in 1974 he held the rank of Sergeant. During his tour of duty, he was a field instructor at the PA State Police Academy, Hershey, PA. He also was placed in charge of the Criminal Division at the South Eastern Training Center, Collegeville, PA. Chet’s love of art led to the establishment of Beaver House Prints, where he created beautiful original artwork through his Art Mark process and custom-made frames. He also taught his process at Northampton Community College. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and boating. Now Chet is probably sharing his gift of story telling with the angels and playing heavenly music on his new harmonica. Chet’s daughters would like to thank the entire staff of Arcadia Hospice for the loving care they provide to their father during his recent illness.
