Nov 29, 2018

Beloved husband, father, and uncle to many, Vern Chase, age 85, of Edmonds, passed away peacefully at home November 11, 2018. Vern was born in Long Beach, California, on June 1, 1933 to Vernon and Thelma Chase.

He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Barbara, and children Thomas Chase (Toni) of Mechanicsburg, PA; Jeanne Tiscareno (Bob) of Seattle, and Dave Chase (Coleen) of Bellingham.

Always playful at heart, he was a devoted grandfather to six grandchildren, Bobby, Abby, Mimi, Danny, Tommy, and Cam; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Mary Bronson.

When he and Barbara retired in 1998, they moved to Seattle to be closer to their children. They eventually settled down in Edmonds. In Edmonds, he was involved with City of Edmonds activities, the YMCA, and Rotary. He and Barbara were honored with their 2006 selection as Edmonds Citizens of the Year.

The family requests donations be sent to the Parkinson’s Foundation, the Rotary Foundation, or a charity of your choice.
