Kevin George Huston Sr., 48, Carbondale, died Tuesday at his in-law's residence in Jefferson Twp. after a long courageous battle with cancer. His wife is the former Jennifer Bellamy.
Born in Carbondale, son of George and Agnes Henry Huston, he was a laborer at Glass Products, Carbondale, for 25 years. He was employed at North East Laminations, Jessup, for four years. He attended the First United Methodist Church in Carbondale.
Kevin was a loving husband and father who adored and was proud of his three wonderful sons. He was very concerned about their education and never missed a parent-teacher conference. He was an avid golfer and bowler and was an Eagles and Phillies fan. Kevin worked hard his entire life until he was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. While going through treatment he worked for another two years. He was always a positive, kind and loving person and had a wonderful sense of humor. He will be dearly missed by his family and all who knew him.
The family thanks Home Health Care Professionals and Hospice in Eynon for their care and support.
