Services for Chester M. Linton, a retired proofreader for The Baltimore Sun, will be held at 1 p.m. today at the Hubbard Funeral Home, 4107 Wilkens Ave.
Mr. Linton, who was 84 and lived in West Baltimore, died Monday at the Jenkins Memorial Home after an apparent heart attack.
He retired in 1971 after working for the papers for more than 10 years and as a proofreader for a short time before that at King Bros. Earlier, he worked in the Baltimore and Ohio railroad print shop for more than 30 years, starting as an apprentice printer and finally working as a proofreader.
The Baltimore native was a fan of the Orioles and the Colts.
He is survived by his wife, the former Margaret Davis; a son, William M. Linton of Phoenix, Ariz.; three grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
