William Arthur “Bud” House, 65, of Hobgood, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at his home.

Bud worked in construction, eventually owning and operating House Construction. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the Pamlico River, but especially enjoyed being on the farm. Bud found his happiest moments spending time with his grandchildren, family, and special friends. He was best described by his family as having the biggest heart and a willingness to help others. He will be greatly missed by those that knew him best.

Bud was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Jeanne of the home; two daughters, Tammy Bunch of Roanoke Rapids and Wendy Ward and her husband Mike of Greenville; four grandsons, Will Wheeler of Concord, Zachary Pilley of Hobgood, Shea and Connor Ward both of Greenville; a sister, Audrey House and her husband Greg Thomas of Matthews; and a brother, Oscar “Skay” House, III and his wife Michie of Durham.

William Arthur I can hear your voice now and saying Jeanne in your deepest country voice. I just hugged you about a week or so ago and who knew. And, how you ask Chase when you saw him If he could still put his foot on his chin which you were so amazed by that. You were the best husband to my aunt Jeanne and her girls. You have made such a difference in everyones life. Your quick wit and saying funny things off the cuff always had us laughing. You loved your family so much and being there for your grandchildren. I was heartbroken to learn of Buds passing. Praying for you and your family that you may find a way to heal. We love you so much. Good bye for now until we all meet in the other side!! We love you so much!!
