“Billy” (William John) Morehouse born on October 6, 1960 passed away peacefully on January 7, 2024 “at the lake”. Originally from Zealand, NB, Billy resided in Fredericton for over 40 years.

Billy was predeceased by his parents, Doug and Dorothy (Crouse) Morehouse; brothers-in-law, Jean Yves Dube and Eric Crouse, great nephew, Gavin Palmer, mother-in-law Carol Grant and friends Barbara and Eddie Hall.

He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Cheryl; their daughter, Jennifer; son, Jeffrey; daughter-in-law, Dayna; grandchildren, Tucker “Grampie’s Boy”, Harlow “Matilda”, Avery “Little Manny” and baby Leni, who he held the most out of all of them. Billy is also survived by his siblings Patsy (Jason) Morehouse, Duane (Heidi) Morehouse, Cathy Crouse and Wilma Dube; sister-in-law Brenda Haab, brother-in-law Carl (Aneas) Brown, as well as many special nieces, nephews and cousins.

Billy was a jokester and always had a good time. He had some very special friends over the years; Darren Chute, Ivan Morehouse, Brian Stairs, Tommy Morehouse, Dave Gilks, Leo & Norma Peterson and Harold & Janet Moase.

Billy operated heavy equipment for Charmac Construction for 36 years. He loved his job, driving around visiting people, tinkering around the garage on his many make-work projects, “hunting”, snowmobiling, old music, Canadian Tire, the buses and life at the lake. He would do anything he could for whoever needed it, especially his kids around their homes. He will be missed by many.
