Robert Andrew House

December 23, 1971 — September 4, 2015

Robert Andrew House, of Decatur, Georgia, passed away Friday, September 4. Rob was born in Charleston, South Carolina on December 23, 1971, the middle of three boys to Richard and Frances House of Cumming, GA. He was a graduate of Lassiter High School. He studied at Georgia Tech prior to transferring to Auburn University where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian in 1994 with a degree in Operations Management.
A gifted and respected engineer, he began his career with Rockwell Industries in Greenville before moving to Decatur, which was his home for the last 17+ years. He worked for Belt Corporation of America in Cumming for over 10 years, building machines that only his brilliant mind could fathom.
His passions were family, friends (his Paisans), engineering and soccer. Over the years, he coached numerous children's teams, including both his daughters' teams, and could be found at least twice a week on a field playing with people half his age- and teaching them a thing or two.
He lived to help others, always the first on the scene when friend or family called. He was a devoted son, brother, husband and father. He inspired others to be a better version of themselves.
He is survived by his parents; his wife, Lani House, two daughters, Olivia Jane House (12) and Alma Francesca House (8); siblings Jeffrey House of Jacksonville, FL and Michael House of Roswell as well as many other family and friends.
