George Herman House, a dedicated husband, father, brother, grandfather and a core member of the community, died March 8 at the age of 57.
In the 25 years he lived in Sitka, he touched many people’s lives, through his calling as a counselor.
He always had a joke and a smile for everyone. His influence will be felt for many years.
George was born June 30, 1960, in Seattle, the son of Violet L. .Hiatt-House and George E. House.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother Don House; and granddaughter Zen Carroll.
He is survived by his wife Jacklyn Everman-House and his children Tabitha House, George “Ricky” House and Lee House, all of Sitka; stepdaughters Antaya Washausen of Alaska, Traci Washausen of Alabama and Jenifer Free of Arkansas; sisters Joni Schmitt of Montana and Doris Gillies of Idaho; and his brother Art House of Washington.
Also surviving are 46 nieces and nephews, 12 grandchildren, and great- grandchild Elaina Gomez.
George’s celebration of life is planned for Saturday, March 31, at the Swan Lake Senior Center starting at noon. “Please bring a dish to share and your memories,” his family said.
The House family thanked everyone for their support.
