Huston Andrew Firment passed away peacefully with his family around him on July 7, 2019. Huston was a dedicated big brother to Hunter and Hannah. Teaching them important life lessons like underwear fresh from the dryer is perfect to wear as a hat and the ways ranch dressing can enhance any food. Huston felt so privileged to have Hunter and Hannah as not only siblings but best friends. He loved to catch up on Hannah’s huge circle of friends and lived for days on the couch where he could watch sports and share stats with his brother Hunter. He had a great sense of humor with an infectious laugh topped with a mischievous glint in his beautiful dark blue eyes. He loved to dish and binge on NetFlix making him his Mom’s source for many juicy tidbits and her beloved friend. He taught his Mom the joy the boundless love a child brings. Huston at the age of four could espouse sports trivia rivaling any seasoned professional broadcaster. He schooled his Dad on all things Packers, Michigan Football and Duke Basketball. Huston did his best to sway his Dad to support his favorite European Soccer Club, Real Madrid, but was dismayed by his Dad’s choice of the inferior Arsenal. Huston grew up as an avid basketball and soccer player. He was the “floor general” on the court of his AAU basketball team. Huston played with the Southern Chester County Soccer Association, going as far as winning the Pennsylvania President’s Cup and advancing to the regional championship tournament. Huston also played soccer for Unionville High School and in his junior year they went to the Pennsylvania state semi-finals. Huston graduated from Unionville High School in 2011. He went on to Wake Forest University where he was a member of the Sigma Nu Fraternity and graduated with a B.A., Magna Cum Laude in 2015. Huston then received his J.D. from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2018, Magna Cum Laude, in the top 5 of his graduating class. He was a Member of the Wake Forest Law Review and Order of the Coif. While in Law School, Huston served as a judicial intern to the Honorable Mary M. Johnston of the Delaware Superior Court and a legal intern for Collins and Associates. Huston became a member of the Delaware State Bar in December 2018, and was employed as an Associate in the Business Group of Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP, Wilmington DE. Huston is survived by his parents Kelly and Scott Firment, his younger brother Hunter and younger sister Hannah; maternal grandparents Nancy and George Smith; paternal grandparents Andrew and Patricia Firment. He is also survived by many adoring Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Friends. Huston was God-father to his beloved cousin Katy’s daughter Violet. One of the proudest moments in his life was being in Katy and Jordan’s wedding. Along with being unselfish in life Huston was unselfish in death and donated his organs to save five other lives. To learn more about organ donation, visit https://www.organdonor.gov. Visitation will occur on Monday, July 15, 2019 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM at Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church 101 Old Kennett Rd Wilmington DE 19807. Services will follow at 1:00 PM. A reception will follow at Buckley’s Tavern 5812 Kennett Pike Wilmington DE 19807. All are welcome to join in celebration of Huston’s life. Huston’s booming voice and spontaneous dancing brightened all of our lives. He had an intense curiosity and loved learning. His future appeared to be so big like his personality but God had other plans. Huston cared deeply about place, and justice for all people, particularly those least likely to receive it. He enjoyed tutoring in the Latinx community and felt a deep passion for making a difference. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the La Carcajada Fund Honoring Huston at the Delaware Community Foundation by mail to P.O. Box 1636, Wilmington, DE 19899 or online at delcf.org/firment. This non-profit fund was set up in memory of Huston to support programs and services that create justice for those least likely to receive it. For online condolences visit www.mccreryandharra.com.

I met Huston in 2013 working as a camp counselor at a Summer Camp in Texas. We were both college kids living in the middle of nowhere Texas hanging out with 12 year olds every day. We coached football and basketball together and it could not have been more fun. He was genuinely one of the funniest people I have ever met, and I couldn't have made it through the summer without him. One of my favorite memories from that summer is when Me, Huston and some others took on a few of the British counselors who thought they could beat us at soccer. Huston put on a clinic and we ran them off of the field, laughed about it the rest of the summer

Deeply saddened to hear of this tragic news. Huston had a positive impact on everyone he was around. Prayers to his family in these tough times

Saddened to hear about your passing Huston. I'll always think back fondly on the time we spent that hot summer at that camp in Texas. Justin and my time wouldn't have been the same. We were missing the friends we had made there the prior two years who didn't come back. You filled that gap immediately and brought about a new unique chapter. Thank you for your friendship, your jokes, and showing us all to not sweat the little things and to enjoy life and the moment.

In times like these, all we can do is turn to our faith. Faith is the ability to believe even when it is completely beyond our power or sense of reason to believe anything. We have faith that Huston was on this earth for a very special reason and he lives on in those who he gave another chance of life to. Your connection to him will never be broken.

Dear Firment family,

My heart aches for you all. Hunter and Hannah, I had your big brother as a student before I had the two of you. Huston graced the classroom with his linguistic talent, enthusiasm, and wicked sense of humor. He is one of the ones you remember for years afterward. Not too long ago I had the privilege to share with your lovely mother how how much I enjoyed having each of you as my students.
I regret that I am currently traveling abroad and I will not get the chance to honor Huston and share your grief with you in person. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely,
Señorita

Our son Rhett was blessed and fortunate to get to know and have the friendship of your dear son and brother. They became friends at Wake Forest University where they connected while studying for their JD. Rhett made sure we meet him several times, including at Graduation. I remember Rhett described Huston as one of the smartest guys he ever knew and enjoyed picking his mind on all topics. They spoke often by phone about where their lives were and what they wanted to accomplish. Huston made a great impression on Rhett's life and will be greatly missed by all. My heart and prayers are with all of you . Hopefully knowing Huston genuinely touched so many lives will give you peace and comfort and let you know he is very special to so many. With heart felt love and sincere condolences.
