October 20, 1950 - November 27, 2017
Douglas C. Houck, 67, of Dushore, died Monday, November 27, 2017, as a result of injuries he sustained from a motor vehicle accident. Born October 20, 1950 in Narvon, he was a son of the late Richard B. and Alice P. (Fisher) Houck. Doug was employed with BJ Baldwin Electric and retired in 2014 from Williamsport Electric after having worked there for 38 years. He served his country honorably in the U.S. Marines, and was a member of the Sons of the American Legion Post 601, Sonestown, where he currently served as first vice president. An avid Eagles and Phillies fan, Doug also enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family and friends. However, one of his greatest joys was spending time with his four grandsons; they meant the world to him. Surviving are two sons, Randy A. (Tara) Houck and Nathan C. (Amber) Strain, both of Dushore; a sister, Linda Ruoss of Frankfort, DE; two brothers, Dale (Zina) Houck and Glenn (Alta) Houck both of Narvon; and four grandchildren, Jeremy A. Houck, Jared D. Houck, Ethan C. Strain, and Marshall C. Strain, all of Dushore. The family will hold a Celebration of Life on Sunday, December 10, starting at 1 p.m. at the American Legion Post 601, Sonestown. Burial will be held privately at the convenience of the family. The family will provide the flowers and suggest memorial contributions to American Legion Post 601, 1433 Champion Hill Rd., Muncy Valley, PA 17758 or the Sullivan County Recreation Association, P.O. Box 307, Laporte, PA 18626. Arrangements have been entrusted to the McCarty-Thomas Funeral Home, Dushore. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to the family at www.mccartythomas.com.
