    Notes 
    • Obit from West Seattle Herald: date not given

      Born in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, on September 5, 1908, to Charles House (who had homesteaded from Bath, England) and Mary Ann Fielding. He finished his schooling in Vancouver, BC, where he was written up for pitching a "no hit-no-run" game against a semi pro baseball team from Washington.

      After moving to Seattle, he met and married Katherine Laura Powell, and had two sons who graduated from the University of Washington. Bill was a member of the West Seattle Christian Church since 1952. He actually enjoyed his work, loved his family, and developed an awesome golf game, which became a lifelong source of pleasure and companionship. Upon retiring in 1973 from Pacific Northwest Bell, Bill had completed 44 consecutive years of accident free service and received a written commendation.

      After a heart bypass, Bill and Kay moved to Spokane to be nearer to family in 1998. Finally needing specialized care, he moved to the Waterford for his final two years.

      He is survived by his wife of 69 years, sons Bill, Jr. and wife Lynn of Spokane, Bob and Sharon from Scottsdale Arizona, Grandchildren Beverlee (Tom), Bonnie (Steve), Jason (Kilee), Stacey (Jeff) and great-grandchildren Jennifer, Emily, Stephen, Jr., Marissa, Justin, and Nicole, and many very special nieces and nephews.
