In addition to his brother and sister, Mr. Chace is survived by nieces and nephews John William (Pat) Chace, James Robert Chace, Susan Ann Chace, Liz (Tom) VerSchure, William Allan (Blanca) Chace, Steven (Christina) Burnham and James (Lee) Burnham; eight great-nieces and nephews; and five great-great-nieces and nephews.
