Terry James House, age 74, of Fruitport passed away Saturday, February 9, 2019, at home. He was born November 19, 1944, in Shelby, Michigan, to the late Harry James and Evelyn Jean (Osmer) House.

Terry married Roberta Douglas on March 10, 1990, in Louisville, Ky. Terry was a member of Fellowship Bible Church, as well as the VFW Post 3195 in Muskegon. He worked as a welder doing maintenance for Kandu Industries, and enjoyed traveling, camping and building things. Terry was a jack of all trades, as his family and friends would say. He also enjoyed collecting and polishing rocks and fossils, and was very knowledgeable on the different types of rocks he would find. Terry was a great friend to many, and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Terry is survived by his wife of 29 years, Roberta “Bobbie”; daughters: Rikki (Scott) Copper, Cindy Bailey, Shelly Johnston, Hazel (Scott) Eynon and Kelly Lewis; sons: Terry Gleason Jr., Matthew (Michelle) Gleason, Jason (Pam) Cadwell and Jerry House; 30-plus grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; sisters: Bonnie Kelly, Mary Fisk, Margie Vandermass, Roberta (Howie) Boeve, Peggy (Joel) Pomeroy and Mercile Martinsen; sisters-in-law, Jane Douglas and Karen Verplank; brothers: Wilson (Verna) House, Edwin (Mary Sue) House and Jim House; and brother-in-law, Ron (Annie) Douglas. He was preceded in death by his sons, Mark and Luke, who died at birth.
