Fort Ann, NY – David G. Morehouse passed away at his Dad’s house on March 13, 2020, joining his parents and his brother.

Dave was born on March 19, 1956 in Granville, NY the son of George and Eleanor (Bassett) Morehouse.

He grew up in Granville and attended Granville schools. He played football while in high school. He graduated from Adirondack Community College with an engineering degree.

After working on local farms for a few years, Dave was hired by the Village of Fort Ann for whom he worked for the next 20 years.

David pulled ponies from his youth on.  He enjoyed helping other teamsters when not driving his own teams. He did this with his family and friends. David was a member of Los Bravos Motorcycle Club for many years. Dave also drove race cars at Malta and Devils Bowl Speedways. He was building his own race car till his passing. Race cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles-the faster the better!!

Dave started playing pool when he was 18. He played in the Granville League, Tri County League, APA League and a Monday Night Coed League as well as competing in many tournaments. He was Captain and Co-Captain for many of his teams as well as secretary of Granville League for many years.  Some league nights, Dave and his sister would ride his motorcycle to pool matches in the snow just because he wanted to-stopping occasionally to warm their hands on the tail pipe.

Dave was a member of the Saratoga Eagles 2586 and the American Legion in Hudson Falls.

David lived his life the way he wanted to, even though sometimes it was hard to understand why. On any given morning you could find Dave at Mernie’s having coffee, reading the paper, and working on the crossword. On warm summer days you could him fishing in this boat in the area.  He would help anyone with anything and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Dave was predeceased by his parents, George and Eleanor Morehouse, his uncle Nelson Briggs and brother Bob. Survivors are his sons Joe (Wendy) and Eric (Ashley). He was blessed with three grandchildren Tori, Joey and Toby Joe as well as a great grandson Maxwell. He is survived by a brother Chipper (Crystal) and nephew Chip and his sister Deb. He is also survived by his Aunt Edna Briggs and Aunt Donna and Uncle Arba Bassett as well as several cousins.

David’s family would like to thank everyone for the phone calls, texts, cards, and visits. They mean so much.

A celebration of Dave’s life will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 1 PM at his family’s home at 1874 CR 23, Granville, NY. All are welcome.

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville. Online condolences may be made to
