Wilbur Edward House

November 10, 2022

Wilbur Edward “Ed” House, age 95, formerly of Raleigh, NC passed away Thursday, November 10, 2022, in his home in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Born February 28, 1927, to Troy and Lillian House, Wilbur was raised in Sampson County, NC where he attended Mingo High School. Thereafter, Ed served his country as a proud patriot in the US Armed Forces.  Following Ed’s discharge, in 1948 he worked as a telecommunications expert for Western Electric for over 36 years.  Ed was an active member of Colington United Methodist Church and longtime member of the BPOE Raleigh Lodge #735 and James B. Green #735 Masonic Lodge.

Ed’s talents were many, but most of all he was benevolent and charitable, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, community volunteer, and friend who appreciated spending time with those he loved. He touched and will continue to touch people from all walks of life with his wisdom, open heart, and generous and loving nature.  He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Jean; daughters, Donna and Allison, sons-in-law, Bill, and Todd; son, Jerry, daughter- in-law, Leatha; granddaughters, Beth, Laura, and Karen; and sister-in-law, Dora.

The memorial service with military honors will be held at 1:00 PM Tuesday, November 15, 2022 at Colington United Methodist Church, 1949 Colington Rd, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948, with Pastor, Jack Colenda, officiating. Friends may greet the family and share refreshments in the fellowship hall immediately following the service.  All friends and family are welcome to attend.

The family would like to express our thanks for the wonderful help and care given by Albemarle Home Care & Hospice and our private healthcare aides.  In lieu of flowers, friends may make memorial contributions to Colington United Methodist Church. Condolences may be shared at www.gallopfuneralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.
