During his grade school years, the family moved to Burley, Idaho where he would spend the majority of his life. He graduated from Burley High School. He was talented working with his hands and had a gift for being able to fix most anything. Over his life he worked as an electrician, various auto jobs, potato processor, but his favorite job was working at the Burley Golf Course.
His favorite hobbies were tinkering on old cars and sports of all kinds. He was a standout athlete in high school sports: cross-country, track, baseball, and basketball. After high school he enjoyed skiing, tennis, and racquetball. But his favorite thing was playing golf with family and friends. It was time spent golfing that fostered some of his closest relationships. He was known in the community for his attendance and support of high school sports, and especially for stringing tennis racquets for the Burley and Minico tennis teams.
His proudest accomplishment is his family, he always put them first in his life. He was a faithful son, loyal brother, proud father, and loving grandpa.

I am so very sorry for the loss of this dear man. I worked with him at ore-ida and gave him the nickname “huston”. We were running potato packaging machines. He was getting ready to go to break and i was doing weights. We had to weight 10 Full baGs of product from each line. When i weighed his line there were 8 underweights out of 10. I yelled to him as he was getting Ready leave saying, “huston, we have a problem. From that daY on he was known As huston. He was doing boY sCouts at this time. My GraNdkids were going to him. He was always Huston. Huston was a wonderful friend who always had a smile for everyone. He was his happiest when he got his job as grounds keeper at the golf course. LawRence, lyle, And wayne i am so very sorry for your loss. Lynn was a very good friend. R.i.p. huston. Until we meet again my friend.
