In Memoriam: Merrick Chadbourne

Merrick was found in his home Wednesday evening, June 6, 2012. He was a unique, happy and outgoing boy. The police investigation concluded his death was an accident. There was no indication bullying was a factor. Merrick was a member of the AMS ski team (Alpine and Nordic) and was captain of the Nordic team. He had many friends and will be missed by us all. Merrick's services were held on June 11, 2012. The members of the AMS ski team accompanied the casket into the church and attended services together with the Edward Little team sitting in support with them. Lost Valley has a memorial stone and tree in front of the lodge in his honor.
