Mr. Stacey Howard Chase, 50, passed away unexpectedly Sunday evening, October 29, 2017. A lifelong resident of Greene County, he was born August 3, 1967, the son of Howard L. and Helen Smith Chase. Following graduation from Greene Central High School, Stacey completed his Associates Degree at Wayne Community College. A godly man, he was devoted to his family, church, community and friends. Stacey had a servant’s heart, always putting others first and serving in any capacity; the word “no” was not in his vocabulary. For many years, he served on the Snow Hill Volunteer Fire Department and as a skilled craftsman he frequently used his God-given talents to help others. Stacey cherished time spent with his family and friends and always chose to focus on the positive in everyone and everything. The beauty of God’s creation was visible to him gazing upon the sunset at Emerald Isle where he spent many weekends with his family; his retirement plan was to reside there and consume his time doting on his forthcoming grandchildren, one of which is due in December and the other in 2018.
Left to cherish Stacey’s memory are his wife of 31 years, Misty Lang Chase; mother, Helen Smith Chase; son, Austin Tyler Chase and wife, Caroline; daughter, Ashleigh Chase Lancaster and husband, Fuzzy; and sister, Tracy Lynn Chase, all of Snow Hill. Additional survivors include his parents-in-law, Jamie E. “Ham” and Linda M. Lang; brother-in-law, Jamie E. Lang III and wife, Melissa; and nieces, Kelli Chase Revels, Emma Rose Chase, Georgia Lang, Sadie Lang, and Eliza Lang.
A Service of Remembrance will be held 7 PM Wednesday, November 1, at Free Gospel PFWB Church, 145 Free Gospel Road, Snow Hill, with Pastor Mike Parks and Reverend Cliff Harvell officiating. Committal Services will take place 11 AM Thursday, November 2, at the Snow Hill Cemetery with the rendering of Fire Department Honors.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday prior to the service from 5:30 – 6:30 PM and also immediately following the service. At other times, the family will be at the residence.
Since its establishment, Stacey was an apostle of the Greene County Renewal, always working behind the scenes making sure everything was prepared and ran smoothly. The Greene County Renewal’s mission was to bring unity to Greene County and glory to God; both being things Stacey was very passionate about. In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials in Stacey’s memory to Greene County Renewal, c/o Becky Sutton, 665 Burrellfield Road, Snow Hill, NC 28580. Online condolences at www.taylor-tyson.com

May the blessings of Jesus Christ be bestowed upon the Chase and Lang families during these difficult times. Stacy and I go way back to recreation ball and high school ball at Greene Central. He was a genuine guy and will be greatly missed through the years. teammate Adrian Smith class of 1986 GC.

Angels are singing while we are all in disbelief. God knows what is right and he has this in his plans. Keep strong, keep your faith, and rely on God for your peace and strength. Loving you all, Donald & Sandy Beaman
