William R. Huston, 65, died Friday, Jan. 20, 2012, in his home following an extended struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. The family insured that William’s last days were spent in his home and they were present until the very end. A memorial service was held Jan. 25 at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Cedar Rapids.
Local survivors include his son, David (Lisa) Huston, of Swisher.
William R. Huston was born Aug. 1, 1946, to John and Edna Huston in Cedar Rapids. He was married to JoAnn Erickson in 1965. Bill worked as a plater for 27 years at LeFebure. The next 14 years Bill and JoAnn worked together in their cleaning service. This allowed them the opportunity to do work they enjoyed – teaching others about the message of hope from the Bible.
A memorial fund is being set by the family.
