The love of family and friends permeated Kirsten Anthony Houston’s life. He has left us special memories of love that will sustain us as we journey through life without him. After a hard -fought battle with diabetes, Kirsten Anthony Houston passed away August 28, 2021 at his residence in Radcliff, KY.
Mr. Houston was born January 25th,1967, to Charles and Patricia (Robinson) Houston. Kirsten was the first grandchild for Wilbert and Eunice Robinson and for Charles and Elsie Houston.
Kirsten’s formative years were in Atlanta, GA, Miami FL, Moss Point MS, Pensacola FL, and Louisville KY. He graduated from Alcoa High School in Alcoa, TN. After graduation he joined the US Navy on November 4, 1986 where he served for 4 years. His first assignment was in Long Beach, CA and his final assignment was in Adak, AK.
Kirsten loved his nieces and nephews as his own and they affectionately called him “Uncle Biscuit.” He spent many hours of his time entertaining them but was always concerned about their safety and wellbeing. Kirsten’s love for children extended to the neighborhood as well. There would often be knocks on the door asking if “Mr. Biscuit” could come out and play?” Kirsten loved his family and loved Alcoa, TN.
His kindness was unmatched. His loving manner and infectious laugh will be truly missed.
Kirsten was preceded in death by his grandparents Wilbert and Eunice Robinson, Charles and Elsie Houston, uncles, Calvin and Jerome Robinson and aunt Gwendolyn Williams and cousin Terry Robinson.
