Tribute & Message From The Family


William H. (Bill) Whitehouse, Jr., 64, passed away Saturday, July 27 in Imperial Beach, CA. He was born in Fort Wayne to the late William H. Whitehouse, Sr. and Nancy (Powell) Whitehouse.
As a natural handyman with an incredible work ethic, he was always quick to lend a hand to others. Like his father, he retired from Dana Corp. after more than 30 years of service. He served in several Union positions during his tenure at Dana, was a volunteer firefighter for St. Joe Township for many years, and also served on the Board of Trustees for Cedarville Township. His hobbies included fishing, hunting, and casino trips. Ever the life of the party, he was at his happiest when spending time with friends and family – especially if it provided an excuse to put on a good fireworks show. His children will also remember the many nights spent with their Dad at laser light shows he and Uncle Wil put on during the Three Rivers Festival, Haunted Castle, and Christmas at the Zoo when they were young.
He is survived by his children Jennifer Griffis, Amy (Scott) Lazoff, Cody (Tamara) Whitehouse, Benjamin (Candace) Whitehouse, and Simon Whitehouse; grandchildren Alyssa (Grant) Johnson, Aaron & Isaac Lazoff, and Scarlett Whitehouse; former spouse Mary Whitehouse; and siblings Caleb (Ricardo) Whitehouse, Mary (Gary) Nemeth and Tracy Cass. He was preceded in death by his sister Diane Whitehouse. Should friends desire, contributions can be made to the Navy Seal Foundation or the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo.
A service will be held Monday, August 5, 2019 at 6pm at D.O. McComb and Sons Covington Knolls Funeral Home, with calling from 4-6pm. To sign the online guestbook, please visit www.domccombandsons.com
