OTTAWA, Ontario – With great sadness, the Carleton Ravens community mourns the recent passing of Ravens Hall of Fame Inductee and longtime basketball supporter George House.

House completed his undergraduate degree as a Raven and was selected as the 1958 Male Athlete of the Year. In 1996, he was a member of the inaugural class of Ravens Hall of Fame inductees for his excellence in basketball and tennis.

House’s years of gracious support of Ravens Basketball have given rise to the annual preseason House-Laughton Tournament played in the Ravens’ Nest every autumn.

A Celebration of Life will be held with the House family on Wednesday, July 3rd.
