Mike Pease of Chilmark died peacefully last Saturday at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital after a prolonged illness. He was 90 years old.

His family was at his bedside and his dog Jacques, a beloved miniature poodle, lay in his lap.

Flags at his house and the Edgartown golf club were flown at half-mast.

A full obituary will follow in next week’s paper. A celebration of Mike’s life will be held next summer.
