David Alan House, 58,  of Bloomington, passed away at home on Friday, May 3, 2013, after a 20-month battle with brain cancer. David was born to Lawrence House and Dorothy (Steele) Elliott on June 21, 1954, in West Memphis, Ark. On April 7, 1974, he married Betty Albright of Bloomington.

He graduated from Brown County High School in 1972 and served our country for six years in the U.S. Navy.
