I put the house for sale and got an offer. My question is I live in Washington state and I want to know when closing comes which is in 2 weeks will there be any issues with closing for me since he is gone and I don't know where he is and we do not have a separation or filed for divorce. Again the house is soley in my name...

No, the quitclaim deed would transfer any interest that he had in the property to you and make it your separate property. So husband doesn't have to sign off on anything if you sell the house.
