Elton Nason Newport - Elton N. “Posey” Nason 82 died unexpectedly Nov. 28, 2005 at a Pittsfield hospital. He was born in Palmyra December 30, 1922 the son of Thomas M. and Elida E. (Heald) Nason. He attended Newport High School where he excelled in sports. “Posey” as his friends knew him was a business man, and inventor, and a visionary, always starting up new businesses and then moving on to something more challenging when they were a going concern.

Posey was a life member of the Sebasticook Valley Snowmobile Club in Newport. You could always count on seeing Posey and Sally in his bright Red Model A on a sunny summer day driving around Newport and surrounding towns.
