LACONIA — Mylar S. Morancy, 54, of 261 Union Ave., died at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, on Thursday, June 20, 2013 after a short illness.
Mr. Morancy was born Nov. 26, 1958 in Laconia, the son of the late Melvin W. and Katharine E. (Mosher) Morancy. He was a long-time resident of Gilford growing up on Belknap Mountain Road. He briefly lived in Oakland, Calif., and Reno, Nev., before returning to Laconia.
He graduated from Gilford High School and attended the California College of the Arts, graduating in 1988 with a California teaching certificate in art. During his youth he enjoyed skiing, fishing, soccer and baseball and was known for his quickness and ability to steal bases.
Mr. Morancy held many jobs in his lifetime and he was an extremely talented artist. His last job was at Winnipesaukee Forge that specialized in forge work; however his artistic skills included painting, drawing, writing, glass blowing, sculpture and landscaping. Mylar was a free spirit, humorous, loyal and a generous friend as demonstrated by his desire to give away his art to those who enjoyed the piece of work.
Mr. Morancy is survived by a sister, Maureen Colby Hullinger, her husband John and their children Miles and Eva Ruth of Fernley, Nev., a niece, Melissa Morancy, nephew Mikael Morancy and stepdaughters, Courtney Gomez and Ashley Campbell.
