CONWAY, NH – Life long Conway resident and staple in the Mount Washington Valley Chet Lucy has died. According to the Conway Daily Sun Chester B. Lucy, or Chet as everyone in the Valley knew him, died at age 91 of natural causes in the home that he was born in on Sunday.

Chet is part of fifth generation family to call the Mount Washington Valley home and was buried this weekend in the Lucy Family Plot.

Chet was known for many things from his active participation on local boards and committees, owning Conway Supply, and for his plethora of volunteer work around the Valley. He was also notably known for his ability to swing a vote during the old town meetings. Selectman Mary Carey Seavey told the Sun “At town meeting, he commanded such attention when he spoke, and whatever he said always made such a difference. He always spoke so eloquently.”

During the WMWV celebration of 50 years on the air Chet, a long time dignitary on the station, came in to help the station celebrate. Roy Prescott Morning Show host on WMWV said “I was lucky enough to get to know Chet over the years and always found that his Yankee sense of humor and candor was something that really distinguished him from the rest.” Services are set to be held at a later date according to his obituary.
