- Henry H. Huston Sr.
Henry H. Huston Sr., 88, of Burlington, Vt., died peacefully on July 21, 2019.
Barbara, his wife of 58 years, passed away in 2010, and his thoughts were with her every day.
He is survived by his daughter Ann and her son Joseph; by his son Henry Jr. and his son Lincoln; and by many extended family and dear friends.
Henry was born in Chicago in 1931, the youngest of five, and he married Barbara in 1952. He served in the Korean War and later moved to New York, where he attended Cooper Union.
Vermont became his home in 1968, and a year later he established his graphic and industrial design business, Huston Associates. He was an energetic collaborator on projects such as the Church Street Marketplace and the Burlington waterfront. His designs informed many of the unique businesses that made up Burlington and Vermont’s dynamic transformation.
People gravitated to his boundless enthusiasm, playfulness and constant creativity. They, in turn, were touched by his sincere, curious and caring nature.
Lake Champlain provided a theme of great joy throughout his life — from his many boats and a nautical antique store in Essex, N.Y., to volunteering at ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain to finding warm companionship in his late years at the St. John’s Club.
At his request, no immediate service will be scheduled. Donations in his honor can be made to ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain: echovermont.org/join-support/make-a-gift.
