Wayne Edgar House peacefully passed away at home July 21, 2013 at the age of 80.
The Guest Book is expired.
His life began in Bozeman MT (January 7, 1933), but he spent most of his growing years on Vashon Island WA, where he was a star baseball and basketball player in high school.
He proudly served 20 years in the Coast Guard, stationed at Seattle WA, Lake Erie-Toledo OH, Alameda CA, Guam, and Juneau AK. After his service, Wayne worked in banking, legal, and insurance, until he retired.
Wayne was a family man, and had a special loving smile when he spoke of his children. He enjoyed spoiling his dogs, reading, rv travel, staying home, and watching the backyard birds. He freely spoke his mind, was always available to give advice, and we will miss his "guidance".
Now in heaven, Wayne has joined his parents (Edgar & Lucille House) and will later be joined
by his remaining family: his wife (Mona House), former wife (Ann House), his sister (Vanetta & Dick Warren), his brother (Bruce & Deanna House), his daughters and their spouses (Vickie & Wayne Valentic, Lisa & Ken Judson), step-daughters (Melinda Porter, Jenny & Ryan Kothenbeutel), grandchildren (Matt Valentic, Janessa Hoesly, Jessica Piukala, Kyle Miller, Travis LaFave, Alex LaFave, Abby Kothenbeutel, Ivy Kothenbeutel), and great-grandchildren (Maika & Uini Piukala, and Elise Hoesly).
Cancer may have taken his body, but not his strong yet gentle soul. In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated at local animal shelters, or the
