June 12, 2007

Nathan A. Chase, who worked with his brother on the restoration of a historic Fells Point warehouse, died Sunday at Sinai Hospital. He had been injured Saturday afternoon when the motorcycle he was riding struck another vehicle on Falls Road near Cold Spring Lane. The Roland Park resident was 44.

Born in Clearwater, Fla., and raised in nearby Dunedin, he lived for many years in Stowe, Vt., where he was a bartender at The Shed restaurant. He moved to Baltimore nearly two years ago.

Mr. Chase worked with brother Daniel Chase, a carpenter, on renovation projects, including the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers building, a former coffee warehouse in Fells Point, and St. John's Episcopal Church in Mount Washington.

A memorial service will be held at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Living Classrooms Foundation, 802 S. Caroline St.

In addition to his brother, survivors include his wife of nearly 17 years, the former Susan Gerrity; two sons, Sam, 14, and Ben, 12, who are students at Friends School; his mother, Nancy D. Chase of Baltimore; his father Frederick Chase Jr. of Stowe; and another brother, Robert Chase of Pueblo. Colo.
