Edward Browning Chase Died January 1, 2021

By the family

Jan. 6, 2021: Edward Browning Chase, age 34, died January 1, 2021, with his family, Joan, Ned, and Lila, at home in Bronxville, N.Y.

Neddy graduated from Bronxville High School and Princeton ’10 (proud Tower Club member). A first-rate mind, he obtained a patent soon after. 

As a youth, he bravely and successfully fought cerebral palsy, becoming captain of his high school tennis team. 

He finally succumbed to cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy, a devastating genetic disorder.

Through Neddy, we learned what it means to be a truly loyal friend, what it takes to roll with life’s punches with grace and without self-pity, and what it looks like to fight like hell even in the hardest circumstances.  

Neddy lit up every room he entered and made all of us laugh. His family and vast network of friends will miss him terribly, especially his wicked sense of humor.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to ALDConnect.org. A life celebration later.
