Mr. Houston grew up at a time when one could get an education or eat. He chose to eat. In the early years he picked cotton, later, he worked for the City of Shreveport. Following was a long career in the manufacturing industry as a machinist. Though he had a limited education, he was always able to provide for his family. In later years he took great joy in repairing small engines and repairing half the lawn mowers in Shreveport. He will be missed by many, many friends and relatives. He was a devoted member of St. Mary of the Pines Catholic Church.

Roy was preceded in death by his parents, Julius and Ida Houston; his brothers, Jack, Ben, Lee, Cisco, and John; and his sisters, Palma, Ethyl, Ruby, and Grace. Left to cherish his memory include his sons, Roy Gene Houston and wife Laura, and Richard Dale Houston; grandchildren, Levi Dale Houston, Victoria Colby Houston-Lambka, and Jessica Houston; great-grandchild, Hallie Mae Houston; along with special friend, Kevin Gauthier.
