For 45 years, Ray Chase shared his kindness and his love of life with everyone who knew him – his family, his friends, his church, & his community in Friendship, Wisconsin.
A dedicated & loving son, husband, & father, Ray took great pride & pleasure in sharing his love of the outdoors with others through teaching & passing that legacy on for future generations to cherish & preserve. His selfless spirit serves as a shining example to us all.
Following his passing in the Fall of 2019, Ray’s loving wife Michelle reached out to USSA to honor his memory & celebrate his life in a most unique & indelible way – by extending her hand to the children that we serve every day. All of us here at USSA are deeply grateful for the Chase Family’s remarkable generosity, & we remain dedicated to keeping Ray’s legacy alive through our work.
In memory of Ray’s remarkable life, we will plant an oak tree at USSA’s headquarters in Pittsville, with the hope that it will one day grow to provide strength, beauty and comfort—not only to the forestland creatures who share our home but to every child that may one day pass beneath it.
