Houston owned his own business, Anderson Mechanical, for years and retired in his 60s, but remained active doing side jobs, and finally getting a part-time job as a maintenance man to keep himself busy. He served in the Navy during the Korean War. Houston loved to read and exercise. He was a man that did not graduate from high school but he was very well educated, as he was a self-taught man. His knowledge was immense.
He will be greatly missed by all that he touched.

I’m sorry to hear of Sonny’s death. I didn’t know him but had a family connection. Being a hard worker, and self taught man who didn’t finish school seems to be a running theme from his Grandmother Garrett’s side of the house. My daddy, Floyd Garrett, one of Houston, Sr’’s 9 brothers, didn’t go beyond the 5th grade but also had a thirst for knowledge and raised his family well.
