Chasen, 83, died Monday (Dec. 10, 1990) in Millard Fillmore Hospital following a brief illness.
He was an elementary-school teacher for 20 years, most of them at the former School 9 at Bailey Avenue and Doat Street. He also was a guidance counselor for 10 years at School 8 on Main Street before retiring in 1977.
A native of Newark, N.J., Chasen came to Buffalo with his family at age 11. He graduated from Buffalo State College and received a master's degree from Canisius College. During World War II, he worked at Curtiss-Wright in Cheektowaga.
His wife, Belle Sodikman Chasen, also a retired Buffalo teacher, died five weeks ago.
Survivors include two daughters, Elaine Garrod of South Orange, N.J., and Carol Silverman of Kenmore, and seven grandchildren.
