He was 90 and had been in declining health in recent years.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">He was born on July 11, 1924 in Leominster, Massachusetts, the youngest of five children of William and Katherine (Lilley) Hart. He grew up in Leominster and his family spent summers at Long Beach in Rockport Massachusetts, which fostered a life-long love of the seashore.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">He graduated from Leominster High School in 1942 and started at Dartmouth College. World War II interrupted his college career and he joined the Navy V12 training program at Dartmouth. He received his commission in 1945 and served as a Naval officer in the Pacific on the U.S.S. DuPage, an attack transport. After the war, he returned to Dartmouth and graduated in 1949 with a degree in mathematics. He married Ursula Anglim of Fitchburg, Massachusetts in 1949 and they lived in Lewistown, Pennsylvania; Port Chester, New York; and Wyckoff, New Jersey over the next 20 years.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Bill worked as an industrial engineer for Cluett Peabody and A.O. Smith. In 1961 he joined Southwestern Engineering Company (SWECO) as a sales engineer. Because of his gregarious nature and love of people, he was a very successful salesman and manager, and became the Eastern Regional Manager.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">After the death of his first wife in 1969, he married Mavis Perry Buchanan in 1971 and they settled in Merrimack, New Hampshire. He retired in 1989 and they moved to Coventry, Vermont where they spent many happy years in a house they built with a beautiful view of Lake Memphremagog. During his retirement Bill was active in the Newport, Vermont Rotary, the Northeast Kingdom Mental Health Service and the United Church of Newport. </p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Both wives and his four sisters predeceased him.

He was 68. Chip was the eldest child of Capt. Charles Dancy, Jr. and Suzanne Van Buskirk, and was born in Annapolis, MD. During Chip’s childhood, the family was stationed at naval bases around the country. These early years fostered in Chip an adaptable​​, social nature and an adventurous spirit. His siblings – sisters Justine, Catherine, Jennie and Barbara, and brother Kenneth – were dear to him and he treasured any opportunity to gather or vacation with his family throughout his life.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Chip attended Ascension Academy in Alexandria, VA, and went on to receive degrees in Mathematics (‘68) and Electrical Engineering (‘70) from MIT. As a member of Phi Kappa Theta fraternity, he made friendships that would last a lifetime. It was while singing in a church choir in Boston that Chip would meet the love of his life, Marie Arcifa. They married in 1970 and lived in Newton, MA, before moving to Merrimack in 1975. It would be here that Chip and Marie would invest their hearts and souls into raising their children and building a magical home.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Chip has ten children: Cora Leibig and husband Michael of Maple Grove, MN; Abram Dancy and wife Leigh of Shrewsbury, MA; Jesse Dancy of New Rochelle, NY; Mira Dancy and spouse Max Rubinstein, of Brooklyn, NY; Isaac Dancy and wife Jenna of Longmont, CO; Ada Dancy and husband Donnie Hong of Chicago, IL; Leah Dancy of Brooklyn, NY; Zoe Dancy of Denver, CO; Jacob Dancy of Berlin, Germany; and Marita Dancy, who currently attends Bard College in NY. Chip was blessed with twelve wonderful grandchildren: Tobin, Sarai, Carmen, Theresa, Joseph, Rachel, Julie, Jacinta, Thomas, Aidan, Sierra and Isis; dear in-laws; many nieces and nephews; and countless friends.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Chip was a software engineer and contributed to the dramatic evolution of computing technology over the last fifty years. His creativity and <br/>problem-solving ethos drew him into many projects ranging from the development of early compilers to automated control systems and voice and video compression. Over the years he worked for Hewlett Packard, Digital Equipment Corporation, Sanders and numerous start-up ventures.<br/> Chip loved the outdoors and often spent summers setting up camp in the White Mountains, jumping the waves at Rye Beach, biking along the Cape Cod shore and hiking the peaks of the Appalachian Trail. He completed many ambitious home projects and the evidence of his labor remains in the rooms and gardens of their Merrimack home. In his retirement he was a devoted fan of the Red Sox and the Patriots. Most of all, he loved visiting others as well as playing host to his large family. </p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">In his forty years in New Hampshire, Chip fostered many friendships. He volunteered as a youth sports coach and at soup kitchens. He was a longtime parishioner and “Donut Man” at Our Lady of Mercy Parish, and enjoyed conversation with others after Mass. He also actively participated in many programs and outreach initiatives in the St. Anne-St. Augustin Parish in Manchester. He valued his citizenship, lent his voice at town meetings, was a thoughtful voter and helped others to reach the polls as well. In his later years, he attended Day Away programs in Merrimack and Nashua where others appreciated his enthusiastic singing and dancing.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText">Chip always encouraged his children to pursue their ambitions and was proud of their achievements. He inspired others with the grace and humor he maintained as he confronted Alzheimer’s Disease and he showed a passion for life and unwavering integrity until his last moment.</p> <p class="Telegraph-BodyText"> Memories of his kind eyes and easy laugh will continue to give comfort to those who love him.
