During my years at both the Port Jervis Middle School and High School Phil Chase helped mold me into a student and an athlete. Phil coached me in modified football and later in varsity baseball. Not only did Phil teach me the basics of each sport, but he taught me how to behave and he pointed me down the right path toward maturity.. Years later, I returned to teach and coach in Port. While teaching in past years in Philadelphia, I needed some basics in wrestling. Phil helped me! Now back home , I was asked to coach wrestling. Phil was there again! I even had the opportunity to coach two of his boys.
I will always remember Phil and his total sacrifices toward his students. Phil's father taught my Dad and I guess Phil gained some insight from his Dad. My wife Anne and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to your family for your loss. Our prayers are with you. We moved to Tampa Florida and just heard. We wish we had the chance to pay our respects. Please tell the rest of the family our concern.

Dear Carol and family,
I am sorry for your loss. Your father was a wonderful teacher, community leader and friend. I had him in school as my
Chemistry teacher and that led to him hiring me as a babysitter for you and your brothers. Later in life many of his
causes bought us together and I considered him a friend also. He was always kind, caring and a fair person.
The last few times I saw your Dad were in Twin Cedars as my mother is there. He acted as though he remembered me and
was always gracious to me. I have fond memories of your Dad and much respect for him.
My condolences to the whole family.
Doug has left a ton of great memories to all of us.
How in the world could we forget such a loving soul?
My heart is shattered to see him gone.
But that is just temporary.
Sooner or later, we will see him in heaven.
That’s the sweetest hope we can bear right now.
May his soul rest in peace.
Your Friend that will never forget the times we shared together and is sorry to see you go.
I am very sorry to hear of the passing of our "Mr. Chase".
To those of us who were lucky enough to have a class with him, he will never be forgotten. My oldest brother George always spoke about him very highly and knew him for years long after graduation. But, for me, Mr. Chase played a large role in my becoming a teacher. He made class interesting and fun. Imagine that in the late 1960's!
That experience sold me, and I carried that perspective into my own career with wonderful success. I have been forever grateful.
My sincere sympathy to all family members. I hope this note brings a smile and some comfort to everyone.

May the Lord keep and bless Phil Chase, a friend, mentor, and wonderful advocate for our waters. Phil was the quintessential example of someone who could be a fierce advocate for our cause without ever being disagreeable. He was always informed, affable, expert and kind. There is no other like him, Oh, how he will be missed. Andy Boyar
To the family of Jean Orlando:
Dear Gary and family, Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go with you at this very difficult time. Please find comfort knowing how good you were to your Aunt Jean. She loved and appreciated you so much. Jean and Fred were a very important part of the first 14 years of my life, next door neighbors on Reservoir Ave., and like second parents to me and very dear friends of my parents and I. I have wonderful remembrances and stories to share of my life with them, and the memories will never fade. God Bless Jean and all of you.
