Sherman B. “Peter” Chace, formerly of Quogue, died peacefully on November 2 in Escondido, California. He was 90.

He was born in San Francisco on December 7, 1931, to Henry Underhill Chace and Sally (Joost) Chace VanDeventer. Raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, he attended Newark Academy in Livingston, New Jersey, and after serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, attended University of Virginia. It was there that his college roommate Ted Lyman introduced him to his sister, Susannah (Anne), who he would later marry on May 19, 1956 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Essex Fells, New Jersey. Starting in early childhood, he spent his summers in Quogue at the home of his grandfather and namesake, Sherman Brownell Joost. He later made Quogue his year-round home.

He worked for many years as a real estate appraiser with Snover and Company in Babylon.

He was active in the Lions Club and St. Mark’s Church in Westhampton Beach. After retirement, he lived in Tryon, North Carolina, Tucson, Arizona, Ruidoso, New Mexico, and Escondido, California.

Predeceased by his wife, he is survived by his four children, Sherman B. “Peter” Chace Jr. of Brooklyn, Susannah Chace of Shoreline, Washington, Dana Johnson of Escondido, California, Sarah Chace of Asheville, North Carolina; and four grandchildren.

Go Public

Surprising no one, at the conclusion of its review of the Long Island Power Authority, the state legislative commission on the future of LIPA last month recommended that LIPA be transformed into a public power utility.
