It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our darling E. Lewis Chessie on April 20, 2022 at Thomas Hall, Shannex in Fredericton at the age of 83. Born in Yoho, NB, he was a son of the late John and Mabel (Murphy) Chessie. Lewis worked as a salesman for Mussen’s for the majority of his career. He spent the last 27 years at Kings Landing working in maintenance and with the oxen. Lewis loved to bowl, play guitar and harmonica, boating and being at the lake with a bunch of people around. He loved a good joke, loved being around his family, especially his grandchildren. He will be missed for his charm, outgoing personality and his beautiful smile.

He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Nancy; his children Elizabeth LaHaie (Rene) of Fredericton, William Chessie (Shelly) of Yoho, Brenda Chessie (Alvin) of Baie St. Anne; grandchildren Alyssa Bruce (Brandon), Darcey Wheeler (Joe), Jenna Wheeler (Cody), Leanne Wheeler (Mitch), Travis Chessie (Amy) and Matthew Chessie.; 5 great-grandsons Max, Noah, Brayden, Rogan and Carter; brother Lynn Chessie (Theresa); sister-in-law Linda Chessie; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides his parents, Lewis was also predeceased by his brothers Lorne and Alton Chessie and by a son-in-law Buddy Wheeler.

A funeral mass will be held at Holy Family Parish Church on Hanwell Road on Saturday April 23, 2022 at 12:00 pm with Father Dass Chinnappan officiating. Interment will be held at a later date. Donations to the Alzheimer’s Society or the Fredericton SPCA would be appreciated by the family.

Bishop’s Funeral Home & Crematorium, 540 Woodstock Road Fredericton have been entrusted with the arrangements. Online condolences and sharing of memories can be made at www.bishopsfuneralhome.com
