 Michael J. Chapman


Michael J. Chapman, a longtime resident of Melrose, passed away at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington after a lengthy illness.  Michael was born in Malden in 1954, the son of Frank and Margaret Chapman.  He was raised in Malden and graduated from Malden High School with the Class of 1972.  After high school, he settled down in Melrose where he remained throughout his life.  Right after high school, he began working as a purchaser in the Banking industry.  He then became the Purchasing Agent for M.D. Stetson Janitorial Supply, where he had worked until illness forced his retirement late in 2015.  Michael had always been known for his strong work ethic.  His job was the most important thing to him and working 12 hours days was not uncommon.  He also had a longtime fondness of computers, and when he wasn’t at work, he could be found working on his computer at home. 

He is survived by his siblings, Joseph Chapman of Malden, Margarite Simonelli of Falmouth, Helen Hall of Malden, Frank Chapman Jr. of VT,  and Paul Chapman of TN.

To Honor Michael’s wishes, all services will be private.
