Edward J. "Buzzy" Moorhouse, 58, of Albion, Indiana, passed away on Saturday, April 22, 2023, in the presence of his family. Born on Feb. 26, 1965, in Kendallville, Indiana, he was a son of Edward H. and Becky (Keister) Moorhouse. He was a 1983 graduate of Central Noble High School and ITT Fort Wayne, with a degree in Automotive Technology.
Buzzy then followed his dream and opened "Quality Repair", which he ran from 1989 until 2018. He was also owner of EMI Rentals at 7th Street Park. Well-known in the area, he was often asked about car problems and how to fix things. Buzzy was known for his wit and enjoying life to the fullest. He truly didn't know a stranger, and was always willing to lend a hand. He was an avid GTO enthusiast, and enjoyed working on his '65 tri-power GTO, that he was restoring. He was a member of the Sons of the American Legion, Albion Post #246.
Buzzy is survived by his son, Brit E.
