Calvin L. Lancey 54, of Bullock Road, Richmond, NH, died on Sunday, July 16th from injuries sustained when the motorcycle he and his wife Lisa were riding on, was struck by a car as they were traveling home from Maine on Route 4 in Epsom, NH.

Calvin was born in Keene, NH on May 23, 1963, the son of Ernest and Leona (Castor) Lancey. He grew up in Keene, attending local schools, and was a graduate of Keene High School.

As a licensed electrician, Calvin worked his skills in the area for many years, most recently with Cheshire County Electric.

An avid outdoorsman, Calvin could always be found enjoying the wonders that Mother Nature had to offer, including hunting and fishing. His skills for sportsmanship extended to his love of archery, motorcycling and watching motocross events.

He was a handy man of all sorts, and was able to fix just about anything he set his mind to. As a "jack-of-all-trades", Calvin was always willing to help family and friends with any type of projects.

He will greatly be missed by many, but especially by his beloved wife of 32 years, Lisa (Mallat) Lancey of Richmond; the two "twinkles in his eyes", his daughters, Heather M. Lancey of Keene and Haley M. Lancey and her companion, Justin Ruyffelaert, of Swanzey, NH; his mother of Townsend, VT; two sisters, Sheryl Wester of Craryville, NY and Roberta Dunham of Townsend, VT; his mother-in-law, Marie Mallat of Keene; his sisters-in-law, Marianne Tucker and her husband, Matthew, of Keene, and Linda Madden and her husband, Kevin, of Swanzey; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father and his father-in-law, Richard Mallat.

A celebration of Calvin's life will be held on Saturday, August 26, 2017 from 12:00 to 3:00PM at the Stonewall Farm, 242 Chesterfield Road, Keene. To honor Calvin's love of the out of doors, the family requests that those in attendance wear causal clothing representative of the outdoors, including hunting and camouflage attire.

This program, sponsored by the NH Fish and Game Department, provides youth programs in the education of the shooting sports, hunting, fishing, camping and outdoor skills.
