Obituary

Robert Basil Chrest Sr., 67, of Big Chimney, peacefully departed this life at home on December 12th, after a long illness.

He was preceded in death by his father, Hector Carney Chrest Sr.

Robbie will be greatly missed by his mother, Lois Seacrist Long of Winston Salem, NC, his brothers Hector (Regina) Chrest Jr. of Lexington, NC, David (Jeane) Chrest Sr. of South Charleston, Will (Joyce) Tyler of Winston Salem, NC, and sister Jo Hannah (Dr. Clyde) Rorrer of Pt Pleasant.

He was very proud of his devoted children April (Mark) Hager of Goldtown, and Dr. Rob (Alisha) Chrest Jr. of Charleston. "Papaw" was a loving grandfather and adored his grandchildren Adam Hager, Ashley Hager, Lydia (Noah) Eckmeyer, Daniel Hager, Jonathan Hager, Easton Chrest, Caroline Hager, and Sadie Chrest, along with many nieces and nephews whom he also cherished dearly. He was a South Charleston High School graduate. His 40 year career as a meat cutter for the Kroger Co. made him a popular figure in the lives of many in the Kanawha Valley. At home, he was famous for his grilled to perfection steaks! Robbie was also well-loved by his many friends and neighbors, never missing an opportunity to be a help to those around him whenever he saw a need. He lived retirement to the fullest riding his motorcycles, ATV's, and spending time at the WV Clays Gun Club. As hunting, and fishing were a lifelong passion, he collected many trophy mounts and had lots of stories to tell, but to those who loved him, Robbie will be best remembered for his warm hugs, infectious smile and fun-loving spirit.

Funeral services will be at 11:00am Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at Hafer Funeral Home in Elkview with Pastor Rick Perrine officiating. Burial to follow at Montgomery Memorial Park.

Visitation will be from 6-8pm on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at Hafer Funeral Home. There will also be a visitation one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.

Online condolences may be sent to www.haferfuneralhome.net

Arrangements are in the care of Hafer Funeral Home, 50 North Pinch Road Elkview, WV.

Oh, the memories I carry with me of my sweet Uncle Robbie. From the snappin' turtle in the bathtub in the back yard, to the pet raccoon, to riding 4 wheelers and shooting guns, to a kid, going to his house was a treat! Robbie had a story about anything and everything. He brought the best steaks on earth and shrimp so big you had to eat with a knife and fork. If Robbie loved you, he loved you with every piece of his being. He rarely thought of himself, always giving...not just things, but pieces of his heart and soul. He may be gone from this Earth, but we all carry a piece of his heart and soul he gave us while he was here. I love you, Uncle Robbie.
