Glenn Everett Chute, 92
SOUTH PARIS - Glenn Everett Chute died on June 26, 2018,
at the Maine Veterans Home. He was 92.
Born March 10, 1926, in Harrison, he was the son of Walter and Hazel Little Chute.
He graduated from Bridgton Academy in 1944, and from the University of Maine, Orono, in 1951. He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He served in the Army Air Corps during Word War II.
During the wildfires of 1947, Glenn married Ruth Haynes in South Waterford. Together, with her family, they built and operated Keoka Beach Campground. He was director and past president of MECCA (Maine Cooperative Campground Assoc.) and a charter member of Pine Tree Chapter, NAFCA.
For many years he was camping superintendent at Fryeburg Fair, and he remained an honorary trustee of the fair. His primary occupation was selling insurance, beginning with Patrons and Oxford in Auburn, and ending with his co-ownership of the David Klain Agency in Norway.
Glenn belonged to many community organizations, primarily Bear Mt. Grange #62 and Mt. Tire'm Masonic Lodge in Waterford. He had been an ambassador for Kora Shrine Club, a member of the American Legion Foster Carroll Post, and a corporator for Stephens Memorial Hospital, as well as a trustee for Maine Savings Bank.
While serving as a director for the newly formed School Administrative District #17, he was the man who named the district "Oxford Hills"; he was chairman of the board when the high school was built in 1967.
Glenn was predeceased by his wife and two brothers.
He is survived by three children: Nancy Chute Marcotte of South Paris; Linda Davis (Keith) of California; Alan Chute (Laurie) of Arizona; six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, July 5, 2018, at the Chandler Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 45 Main St., South Paris. Private family interment will take place at a later date at the Maple Ridge Cemetery in Harrison.
