John Harris Houston Jr. Obituary
Houston, John Harris Jr.,

John Harris Houston, Jr. died August 30, 2017 in his home. Known to his wife and family as "Duck" and his friends as "Rocket", he played his final round and donated his clubs to science to determine how he managed to find himself continually over par. He grew up in Louisville and lived happily in Lexington until his death. He will rest at Cave Hill Cemetery. A life insurance agent and broker, he was the ultimate connector and lived his life exactly the way he wanted to live it. Due to the steadfast commitment of his wife and the loving care of his son, daughter and his caregivers, he was able to go peacefully into the dawn.

He is survived by his wife Charlotte B. Houston, his son John H. Houston, III, his daughter A. Holland Houston, Sally Houston Tracy (Don), Laura Allen and Katie Allen, Ami Hart (Brad)and Houston and Hayden Hart. A memorial service will be Sunday at 3 p.m. preceded by visitation from 1-3 p.m. at Milward-Southland. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Kentucky Humane Society and First Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
