    A TRIBUTE
    To Forest L. Stewart
    Suddenly our community was saddened by a power beyond human control, which took the life of Forest L. Stewart, My friend, Your friend, and Our neighbor. Leaving his body behind, he journeys on toward immortality and unending existence. Safe from earth's storm and despair—Safe from the rude wind that tossed his floundering bark, now safely moored, his perils over. A man of great patience and heroic courage, well liked by all who knew him for his upright Christian character, integrity, and hospitality. His home never locked to any of his friends who cared to enter. While mentally alert he felt a quickened smart to wounds that had ranked his weakened flesh. He brought us pride and pleasure and left us a pathos of tears, forgetting the tortures of his body, is now lost in the triumph of his soul. Yet the years of our pilgrimage on earth rolls on, while we walk through the wilderness of this world. Life on earth is brief, we come out of the dark, back to the dark, and like a bird, flutter for a moment in the light. All of us that breathe will share that destiny. Thus man and mankind journeys from strength to invalidism, from joy to sorrow, from misery to happiness, and from defeat to victory. At this point we are mindful of the efforts of a faithful and vigilant wife whose promise to watch over in sickness and in health has been fulfilled. We wish it were possible for him who has left us to get one glance at the flowers, the gestures of respect, that adorn his grave and to inhale one breath of the fragrance of the red, the yellow, the blue and those as white as the foam of the wave that carried this neighbor home. Our admiration for this man who never lost his enthusiasm for life will always last and hope will brighten our remaining days and memory will gild the past.
    —Daniel W. Ball.

    'Mr. West Almond' remembered - Chester Gosper left a legacy of
    dedication
    WEST ALMOND - Former town highway supervisor Leonard Watson said there
    was one way to describe Chester "Chet" Gosper, the recently-deceased
    former highway superintendent - Mr. West Almond.
    That distinction was one of many glowing ways West Almond residents
    described Gosper, who served as highway superintendent from 1958-90.
    Gosper, who was born on Tuttle Road Jan. 24, 1928, died Monday at his
    Turnpike Road home, leaving behind many accomplishments. He served in
    the U.S. Army during World War II and worked at the Erie Railroad and
    a dairy farm from 1949-58, before beginning a long career as town
    highway superintendent.
    Those who knew him say honesty and humor were his greatest traits.
    Gosper's wife of nearly 57 years, Eleanor Gosper, said West Almond was
    "Chet's town."
    "He was the most honest, truthful person in town," Gosper said
    Wednesday. "He was just a remarkable person. He never wanted to rile
    people up. Just simply a great husband, father, grandfather and
    great-grandfather. He was very loving of everyone."
    The Gospers were married Feb. 10, 1948 in town hall and would go on to
    have four children, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
    Leonard Watson, a former town board member, began a renovation project
    this summer in Gosper's name on the 151-year-old former Methodist
    Church and grange on County Route 2 with the help of a large donation
    by resident Bruce Hitchcock. His decision came after Gosper had been
    diagnosed with diabetes and had both of his legs amputated. Watson
    said working with Gosper in the past had been a pleasure.
    "Chet would spend many hours sitting in on town board meetings,"
    Watson said. "He was so nervous about how people felt and thinking of
    ways he could better help the residents. He knew what everyone was
    thinking, and was so concerned about the taxpayers. Also, he never
    bought or did anything without the board's approval. He was
    conservative in his proposals and didn't waste anything ... He was Mr.
    West Almond."
    Eleanor Gosper said her husband always asked to be taken on his
    wheelchair to see the community center with his name on it, and said
    he was thrilled with Watson's idea to go through with the renovation
    in his honor. She said her late husband took the town highway
    superintendent job in 1958 when the old superintendent became ill.
    "He wanted to take the challenge," Gosper said. "At the time, the town
    wasn't in that great of shape but he helped change it around. He
    really enjoyed his work. Years ago, during a large blizzard, he helped
    open a road to Angelica, which he was very proud of. He enjoyed
    plowing snow and other duties of his job. He took the current highway
    superintendent (Mike Sherman) under his wing when he worked there and
    helped him."
    Gosper's grandson, Chester Gosper IV, said his memories of his
    grandfather were and always will be warm and caring.
    "He was so honest and humorous," said Gosper, a director at Brown &
    Powers Funeral Home in Hornell, Canisteo and Angelica. "Everyone just
    loved him. He always had a lot to tell me in his later years and I
    liked to listen. Even when he lost his legs, he never blamed it on
    anyone, which is amazing because he was always a person who did
    everything for other people. He never once lost his sense of humor or
    personality."
    Don Hoffman, the town supervisor, said Gosper suggested he get
    involved with the town board back in 1985, before becoming supervisor
    in 1989.
    "He'd been a fixture in West Almond," Hoffman said. "He was a great
    guy and was here as long as I can remember. He was well-liked and
    respected by many people."
    In addition to being town highway superintendent, Gosper's wife said
    he was an active member of the Allegany Highway Superintendents
    Association and lifelong member of the Almond Rod and Gun Club. He was
    also an avid hunter and enjoyed barbecues and holidays, especially
    Christmas, said Eleanor Gosper. She said Gosper had attended
    Alfred-Almond School until he reached the ninth grade, and said the
    two had met when she grew up on nearby Jersey Hill Road and they would
    go sliding down snow hills on sleds as teenagers.
