Obituary for TENNEY C. CHEW, JR

Tenney Chew Jr. peacefully departed this life on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick, MD surrounded by his loved ones. Tenney was born in Calvert County, MD to the late Tenney Chew, Sr and Edythe Moten Chew on July 9, 1942. He received his education in the Calvert County Public Schools System.

He began to work at a very young age and mastered the art of farming. Tenney worked on various farms in Calvert and Anne Arundel Counties. He worked with Mr. Douglas Brady – Brady Farms, the Creek Families, Mr. Charles Spicknell, and the Wood Family.

In his later years, Tenney began to work with Mr. Jimmy Webb. He enjoyed working with them and was embraced by the Webb family. He enjoyed the traveling that he did while working with them, often telling stories of the places they had traveled to. Tenney worked with the Webb family until his health declined and he was no longer able to do so.

Tenney, affectionately known as Jr. was a lifetime resident of Friendship, MD. We jokingly referred to him as the “Mayor of Friendship”. You could always find him in the heart of the town standing in front of the Post Office. Jr. was a “dare devil” and enjoyed being with his family and good friends. Jr. loved wearing cowboy boots and jeans. He also enjoyed driving tractors, going on tractor pulls, watching wrestling, and westerns, cooking his famous steak and onions and spending time with his brothers and nephews who would often stop by and visit. In his final days we truly saw the love for life, fun, and family that Tenney had.

Tenney is survived by seven (7) brothers; Colvin (Sherry) and Michael (Dorothy) Emerson, Elijah Hunter, John (Jackie) and Robert Coates, Jerome (Barbara) and Charles Brown. Six (6) sisters Elizabeth Tasker, Regina Emerson, Faye Logan (Raymond), Rachel Tyler (Charles), Cassandra Watkins (Calvin), Terry Lee (Charles), One (1) sister-in-law Juanita Jefferson, two (2) aunts Nina Reid and Helen Ray; one (1) uncle Webster Reid, devoted friends George and Joseph Butler and host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father Tenney Chew Sr.; mother Edythe Moten Chew; two (2) sisters Audrey Chew and Nettie Mae Creek; three (3) brothers George Chew, Gregory Ellis, and Anthony Emerson.
