COLUMBIA…Floyd “Tony” Anthony House, 66, of Columbia, AL, passed away on Sunday, September 10, 2023, after a brief battle with terminal cancer.


Tony was born on November 24, 1956, to Floyd B. and Kathryn House in Tuscaloosa, AL. When he was fifteen years old, he married his first wife, and they had two children, Scott and Jeannie House. They suffered a great tragedy when they lost their daughter at the age of eighteen months.


At the young age of seventeen, he joined the United States Army. In 1976, he was stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky. There he would meet the love of his life, Linda Richardson. When Tony was twenty years old, he left the Army and joined the National Guard. In 1977, he married Linda and they returned to Alabama where they would have two daughters, Katina House and Chasity Conaway.


In 1982, he started his career as a diesel mechanic with Tractor & Equipment Co. After a short time, he became one of the most highly sought after mechanics they had. He remained with TEC and retired after thirty years of service. After retiring, he found his love for the game of golf. He learned and played as much as he could, he competed in small tournaments, and would marshal others.


Tony enjoyed watching the news, reading, spending time with his family, and he loved his many animals. He spent a lot of time with his beloved dog, Flower, before she passed away a few years ago. Later, he did find room in his heart for Daisy who became his girl.


 Tony had a very good soul. He was honest, passionate, and a loyal husband, father, and friend. He would go out of his way to help anyone that was in need. He even took his jacket off and gave it to a homeless person he passed on his way home from work.


Tony was preceded in death by his parents Floyd B. House and Kathryn Dennison, stepfather James Dennison, daughter Jeannie House, and brother Jr. Freeman.


Tony spent his last days at home surrounded by his wife of 46 years, children, grandchildren, and pets. He leaves behind many memories to cherish to his wife, Linda House; daughters, Katina House and Chasity Conaway; son, Scott House (Erica); sisters, Kathy Adams (John) and Diane Grier; brother, Jacoby Dennison; grandchildren, Bonny Negron, Michael House, Andrea House, Shelby House, Preston Conaway, Logan Conaway and Brooklynn Conaway; great grandchildren, Haystin Mallory, Lena Negron, Liam House and Rowan House; and grand pup, Sage.


 


My Hero


 


You held my hand


When I was small


You caught me when I fell


You’re the hero of my childhood


And my later years as well


And every time I think of you


My heart still fills with pride


Though I’ll always miss you Dad


I know you’re by my side


In laughter and in sorrow


In the sunshine and through rain


I know you’re watching over me


Until we meet again.
