Obituary For Anthony J Chaves
Anthony J Chaves, 68, of Danvers, and formerly of Lynn, died Sunday afternoon at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington following a brief illness. He was the devoted husband of the late Janice H (Broderick) Chaves.
Born in Gardner, he was the son of the late Albert and Hedwig (Gulden) Chaves. He was raised and educated in Lynn and was a graduate of Lynn Classical High School, class of 1973. He continued his education at UMass Amherst and received his bachelor’s degree in Journalism in 1977. He later received his second bachelor’s degree in accounting from Bentley College in 1991.
Anthony began his working career at Osram Sylvania in Danvers and worked in Sales and later management before retiring. Upon his retirement from Osram, he began his second career as Vice President of Arrowhead Real Estate Appraisal Services, a company which was founded by both he and his wife Janice.
Anthony enjoyed traveling to Disney World Resort Parks across the globe, from Florida to California and overseas to Hong Kong. He shared this passion with his wife and family which brought out the best of everyone, especially on Space Mountain. He also had a passion for model trains and enjoyed walking railroad tracks throughout the area. As a grandfather, Tony is the co-inventor of the game "Rakeball" and shared many an afternoon pretending to do yard-work while actually playing rakeball and other creative games with the many grandkids.
Anthony is survived by his children, Anthony J Chaves, Suzanne J Paulin, Leanne K Chaves, and Matthew R Chaves, all of Danvers, and by his beloved 5 grandchildren, Olivia, Alexander, Mackenzie, and Landon Chaves and Emerson Paulin.
