Clag Houston, Jr “Heavy”
Clag Houston, Jr, 75, of Kinston passed away Sunday, March 15th at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, NC. He was a retired member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 553. During his time as an electrician, he acquired the nickname of “Heavy”. Some have commented that it was because he was just heavy in those days, others say it’s the heavy tone of authority when he spoke. Nevertheless, he answered to both “Heavy” and “Jr” and never met a stranger. After retirement, he enjoyed working with his fellow “buds” driving the trucks and tractor in the country fields. Heavy lived his life as he wished and will be laid to rest just the same.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Clag Houston, Sr and Betty Whaley Houston. “Heavy” is survived by his daughter, Sandra Houston Korzeniewski and husband Mike of Kinston, and son Christopher Allen Houston of Colorado; his brother, Thomas Earl Houston of Kinston; six grandchildren, Ashley, Gauge, Zack, Zane, Jesse, and Cole, two great grandchildren, Aubree and Evan; life friend, Kay Jewel Hill; special friends and confidants, Barney Kennedy and Douglas Heath.
A private celebration of life will be held for the family and invited guests on Friday, March 20th at 11am.
