Timothy J. Huston
Tim Huston Obituary
He was the most handsome man in town. Its best comedian. And, far and away, Abilene’s most cosmopolitan dancer. One night, up in British Columbia, Tim danced with women from seven different countries, New Zealand included.
Timothy Joseph Huston was born on February 5, 1957. Next day, he set about the work his Maker had sent him to do. Tim Huston celebrated laughter. He radiated an easy but overpowering love that brought a family together. Love that earned him friends by the dozens. That one fine evening said a woman from Down Under that here, right here, was a man ready to rock ‘n roll.
All those who knew him knew that, no matter what, a smiling, always loving gift
from God stood strong there next to us.
Wild in the joy of his Lord, perfect as always, tonight Tim Huston is dancing with the angels.
Tim’s parents were George & Agnes Whitehair Huston of rural Dickinson country. A child prodigy, he entered the Kansas Neurological Institute (KNI) in Topeka for special training at the age of six graduating at the top his class in 1975. That same year he accepted a position at Occupational Center of Central Kansas (OCCK), beginning his 42-year career there specializing in the cleaning industry. Tim worked with some of the largest business entities in Saline County in this capacity. He loved the staff and his friends at OCCK who made it possible to lead an exceptional life.
Tim was steadfast in his beliefs. K State, the Royals, the Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders could do no wrong. KU and the Broncos could do little right. He loved his birthdays, AMBUCs, serving Mass and road trips that involved staying in a motel. He loved everyone and assumed everyone loved him back.
Dearest to him were the owners and staff of Money Automotive in Salina who accepted him as a team member and hosted his retirement party. His visits there were the highlight of his day. Special thanks to Jim & Barb Miller who supported Tim from his early days in Salina until his final ones. No better friends anywhere.
The family has chosen cremation. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 10:30 AM Saturday, December 10th, at the St. Andrews Catholic Church with Celebrant Fr. Abraham Panthalanickal. Private family inurnment will be in the Mt. St. Joseph Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the Danner Funeral Home Friday, December 9th, beginning at 5:30PM with a Parish Rosary at 7:00 PM.
He was proceeded in death by his parents, a sister Linda Harrold and brother-in-law Capt. Patrick K. Harrold.
Survivors are sister, Mary Jo Boor (Leon), Abilene, brothers; Larry Huston (Kathy), Prescott, AZ, Phillip Huston (Anne), Omaha, NE, and Mark Huston (Joan) Olathe, KS.
