So sorry to hear of Uncle Huston's passing. My growing up was full of Uncle Huston sense of humor and attention. I remember Uncle piling all of us kids in the car and driving to get hamburgers at the Krystal's hamburgers and he used to sing a song about Foot log hot dogs..I have always told that story to a lot of friends. We have lost a good man, but he lives on in all of us who knew Him. He was the Best Uncle I could ever ask for! Love you Uncle Huston!!

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your father. Uncle Huston and I exchanged Christmas cards nearly every Christmas for the last 20+ years. I feel very fortunate to have been able to visit with him last year at Uncle Lloyd's birthday party.

He was a great person and loved and took care of my aunt, his wife Doris, until she passed from dementia. He always spoke highly of both of his sons (my cousins).

I'm going to miss him.

So sorry to hear of Uncle Huston's passing. My growing up was full of Uncle Huston-isms! His sense of humor, attention, and instruction was something I will carry with me for my lifetime. We have lost a good man, but He lives on in all of us who knew Him. The Best Uncle I could ever ask for.

Barry and Family,

Johnny and I are so saddened to hear about the loss of your father. We will always remember him the last time we saw him at your surprise birthday party. Such a nice, wonderful man. Always cherish the memories and times you all spent together. I can almost see the reunion with your mom and Mike once he walked through those gates of Heaven. He will certainly be missed by everyone. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. We pray that God will wrap His Loving Arms around each of you to Guide You, to Strengthen You and to Comfort You all in the coming days and weeks ahead. We are here for all of you if you should need anything. Love to you all.
