    My sincere condolences to the family. Pop and I were childhood friends back in Brooklyn, New York. I used to love his mother the late Ms Mildred & my late husband, Kenny Rogers used to run errands for Ms Mildred, when Pop wasn’t around… We had a joke amongst the three of us that Ms Mildred was trying to steal my husband, we use to laugh about it all the time. We would see him a lot in Virginia Beach, until his father past here. Last time I seen Pop was at Kenny’s funeral, but we would keep up with each other on Facebook and he would call and check on me from time to time. Pop will be missed but never forgotten. I’m praying for strength and Peace of his family and for the strength and peace of his Marcy family. Pop Sleep in Peace.
    Love Allonia

    My sincere condolences to the family of Randy Chesson. Randy was a great friend , always there when you needed a helping hand. He was a kind and gentle soul. My wife Lisa met Randy while she was out walking her dog Princess and Randy was walking his dog Dioji. She introduced me to Randy back in 2009 and we have been friends ever since. We helped each other out on our moves to different apartments and houses , spent many Thanksgivings together along with my family; went fishing together occasionally , and just hung out and talked almost every Monday. He loved to fish, and loved music and movies and of course his New York Football Giants. R I P Randy you will be missed

    Randy was just great individual. We connected the first time we met over 20 years ago. Many times he would help me on projects. He loved to learn the things I did. When it came to fishing he wanted to know how to catch the big ones. Well it paid off because he was catching big fish. My wife Andi and daughter Ashley and I will miss him dearly. Glad that he stopped by just a few weeks ago. To his family, sorry for your loss. Just know Randy touched people in many ways and for that we all are great full. May God be with you and and watch over you Randy. You will always be Remembered.
