Raymond A. Duval of Brunswick, Maine, a former longtime USCF member and a life member of the Massachusetts Chess Association, died at his home on Sept. 10, 2014. He was 81. He was born July 5, 1933 in Brunswick, the son of Wilfred and Eva (Dehetre) Duval, and lived there most of his life.
An avid chess player, he ran the once active Brunswick Chess Club for a number of years at Bowdoin College and was the club's team captain. He was the first treasurer of the Maine Chess Association and served in that position for more than 25 years. His last USCFrated tournament was the 55th New Hampshire Open in Manchester in 2005.
Mr. Duval is survived by his wife of 57 years; two daughters, a son, seven grandchildren, six step-grandchildren and two step-great-grandchildren.
