Houston lived a full life. He treasured his children and family above all. Houston spent two years in the Air Force.

He left some beautiful leatherwork for his family to treasure. Later in life, he was the “taxi driver” of McLeod Village. He was the first to arrive at the family reunion but most of all he wanted to go to church.
