ROBERT “SQUIRREL” LESTER of THE CHILITES died at ROSELAND COMMUNITY HOSPITAL in CHICAGO last week. He was 67.
The group, all from the South Side of CHICAGO, had been together since the '60s. They had several crossover chart-toppers, including "HAVE YOU SEEN HER?” and “OH GIRL.”
LESTER was one of the original members of the group, which was about to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
