It is with deep sorrow that we announce the death of David Carl Houlton. He passed away at age 72 at his home in Winston, OR, lovingly surrounded by his family. He is survived by his children Eric (Hailey) and Melody and David’s three grandchildren, Graham, Grace, and Gabrielle. David is also survived by his sister Diana (Rodger) and their two daughters, Annie (Ron) and Sarah (Josh) and their four grandchildren Liam, Lily, Clara, and Henry. David is predeceased by his parents, Verne and Marguerite Houlton.
David was born in Denver, CO, on March 06, 1949. He spent much of his adult life in military service with the United States Air Force. David was a master electrician and a strong supporter of organized unions in any industry. He spent his life traveling the world in service to his Country and spent his retirement years enjoying the beach and ocean in the Pacific Northwest.
David was passionate in his political views and in how to treat each other with compassion, kindness, and respect. He had a quick wit and an incredibly intelligent mind that loved to learn and read. David was mischievous and an entertaining storyteller who gloried in making others laugh while sharing his moments of mirth with family and friends. He loved taking care of all his “critters” and reveled in their daily antics.
We will truly miss the spark in your blue eyes and the reassurance of your voice. THANK YOU for the love, guidance, support, and friendship you shared with us all.
Memorial contributions may be made in David’s honor to ASPCA.
