Obituary

Joshua Paul Tetreault battled depression for years, but on February 20, 2021, he found peace. He was 38.

Josh was born in Manchester, NH, on March 21, 1982, as Joshua Paul Weatherbee. His life was short but full.

He moved to Arizona with his mother and brother when he was a kid and graduated from Wickenburg High School in 2000. A bright student, Josh received a full-ride scholarship to the University of Virginia. Despite losing his father and struggling with his mental health, Josh graduated with his bachelor's, becoming the first in his family to graduate college. He went on to ensure his brother graduated, too.

After college, Josh worked in sales and a number of other fields before finding his calling helping people with disabilities. Josh excelled at his job and loved his clients. He brought them to wrestling events in Boston so they could see their favorite wrestlers and to see the New England Patriots. He did whatever he could to bring them joy.

Josh was like that. A loving father, son, brother, cousin, nephew, and friend, Josh had an infectious smile and loved to make others laugh.

He loved the Phoenix Suns and cried when the Bulls beat them in '93. He loved the Celtics, Patriots, and sneakers that were too expensive. He loved steak-and-cheese subs from Cesarios in Manchester. He loved his two brothers, his mother, and his family.

But more than anything Josh loved his two boys, Blake and Bryce Tetreault, 3 and 5. Blake and Bryce were Josh's whole world. The days they were born were the best of his life.

Josh is survived by his mother Laurie Balatsos and his brothers, Camryn Goodsell and Nick Balatsos, and his two boys Blake and Bryce Tetreault. Josh was preceded in death by his father William Paul Weatherbee.

Calling hours will take place on Friday, February 26, 2021 from 3-5PM at the Phaneuf Funeral Homes & Crematorium, 243 Hanover St., Manchester, NH.
