Harry D. House, 90, of Hannibal, Missouri, passed from this life and into the arms of his Savior on September 27, 2013.
Family and friends will gather from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. Monday, September 30, at Little Union Baptist Church west of Palmyra. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Pastor Mark Albee of Immanuel Baptist Church of Hannibal, Mo., will officiate. Interment with full military honors provided by American Legion Post 174 will be at Little Union Cemetery.
Harry was born on the farm near Palmyra, Mo., June 3, 1923, to James V. (Victor) and Josephine F. (Josie) House. He enjoyed hunting while growing up on the farm, and occasionally riding his pony to Palmyra for a malt and a movie if he had an extra 15 cents in his pocket.
Shortly after joining the Army during World War II he met his wife Eunice. They were together almost 70 years and she survives.
He is also survived by their daughter and son-in-law, Sandra and Bill Heibel, and their sons and families, Joe and Cindy Heibel (Lyndsie and Baylie) and Jeff and Vona Heibel (Emily, Shelby, and Grace), all of Hannibal. Additional surviving family are all his siblings, June Myers (Charlie preceded him in death) Bill House (Betty), Dan House (Betty), and many nieces and nephews.
Harry had an absolutely wonderful and full life. Coming home from the war, he worked for the Missouri Highway Department for 40 years and retired in 1986.
Throughout his life he enjoyed many different hobbies, including hunting and target shooting, photography, music, motorcycling, muscle cars, competitive bicycling, running, and most of all, chasing the grandkids and great-grandkids in their individual lives.
Memorials can be made to Little Union Cemetery Association.
