Mitchel "Mick" Whitehouse, 67, of Antwerp, passed away Friday, April 1st, at Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne.
Mick was born in Fort Wayne on May 2, 1948, a son of the late Phoebe Ruth (Helsel) and John "Jack" Whitehouse.
Although Mick spent his work week at BF Goodrich in Woodburn, his heart was with his life in Antwerp. Many will remember when he started the softball program in Antwerp but his crowning achievement was his family. He loved his wife and was proud of his children and the fact that they, like him, all graduated from college. Mick loved to repair antique furniture, collect stamps and read about the Civil War and was equally happy to listen to early rock music and cheer for the Cleveland Browns.
On May 21, 1971 he married Brenda Green who passed away July 30, 2012.
He will be sadly missed by his children, Dawn (Gregory) Koehler of Freetown, IN, Heather (Ryan) Konrad of Ypsilanti, MI & Christopher (Stephanie) Whitehouse of York Haven, PA; grandchildren, Cassidy & Chase Konrad & Larson Koehler and beloved dog, Cody.
Viewing is Thursday, April 7, 2016 from 5 to 8 pm at Dooley Funeral Home, Antwerp.

He will be laid to rest at Maumee Cemetery.
