RICHFORD - Jeffrey Chauncey Morse, age 57, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington. Jeff suffered most of his life with an addiction to alcohol. He once stated that if he opened a bottle, he had to finish it.

If you or someone you know has an alcohol dependency, please seek help. Do not wait until it is too late. Please contact a local AA, Al-Anon Chapter, or your primary care provider.

He was born in St. Albans on February 20, 1962 the son of the late Chauncey B. Jr. and Marilyn (Dow) Morse.

Jeff was a graduate of Richford Sr. High School. He worked his entire life at Blue Seal Feeds (now Kent Nutrition). Jeff was an avid reader, loved learning about military history, and watching documentaries. There were not very many subjects he did not know a little something about. He loved talking on the phone and enjoyed having company.

He is survived by his siblings, Linda Thompson of Franklin, Kim Morse of Powder Spring, GA, and Chauncey Morse of Manchester; special nieces and nephews, Kelly, Jodi, Janessa, Jamie, Macie, Zack, Julian, and four-legged Matilda; and several other nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Jeff was predeceased by his maternal and paternal grandparents; and brother-in-law, Norman Ikey Thompson.

Jeffs family would like to thank his special friends, Richard, Ron, Marsha, Junior, Barb, Crystal, and many others; the staff and nurses at Northwestern Medical Center especially Dr. Shah, and Dr. Kaplan; and UVM Medical Center, nurses, David and Phillip; and Dr. Emily for the excellent care Jeff received.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the park on Main St. in Richford, VT. Please bring a story, memory, or fun fact to share that Jeff would have enjoyed.
