Chester B. Buletti was born December 11, 1931 in Red Bluff, CA to Pete & Armida Buletti. The family moved to Bodega Bay when Chester was 4. Chester passed away peacefully from complications of cancer on Wednesday, April 10, 2013. He was 81. He worked over 50 years as a milker for three different dairy farms in Sonoma County. The last 10 years he worked for Korbel as their gardener. It was a job he loved and took great pride in. He leaves behind his loving wife of 60 years Gladys Bassi. His son Rocky Buletti (Cheryl), which he thought more as a daughter than a daughter-in-law. His three grandchildren Gregory (Catherine), Michael (Jessica), and Jeffery. His three great-grandchildren Emily, Alexander and Isabella. He also leaves behind his sister-in-law Karen Buletti as well as many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Pete and Armida Buletti, his brother Charlie Buletti, in-laws Rocco Bassi and Adelina “Della” Bassi and infant daughter Adelina Buletti.
Chester loved to watch the SF Giants and the 49ers play as well as his grandkids playing baseball and soccer. Reading and gardening were his passions. He will forever be in our hearts as a kind and giving man. He will forever be our Papa!
