First responders and community members gathered on the Franklin square to pay their respects as the funeral procession for SHFD Deputy Chief James Edward "Eddie" House passed through the city.

As the Spring Hill and Franklin communities continue mourn the sudden loss of Spring Hill Fire Deputy Chief James "Eddie" House, Franklin Fire Chief Glen Johnson and Spring Hill Fire Chief Terry Hood led a multi-vehicle funeral procession through downtown Franklin on Wednesday evening.

Franklin residents could be seen by the dozen watching as the funeral procession drove around Downtown Franklin's roundabout, some holding their hats over their hearts.

House had worked for the Franklin Fire Department for 34 years. He worked as a volunteer firefighter for the WCRS for 36 years, and was currently serving as the acting deputy chief for the Spring Hill Fire Department since 2019.

House is preceded in death by his parents Charlotte and Ed House Sr., the latter of which was also a firefighter with Williamson County Fire & Rescue.
