HARRY MARSHALL HUSON
October 5, 1928 – April 13, 2022
Harry Marshall Huson passed away in Casper, Wyoming, with his daughters by his side.
He was born in Sheridan on October 5, 1928, to Mae Chase and Harry H. Huson. He attended schools in the Arvada/Clearmont area graduating from Clearmont High School in 1946. While attending school in Arvada, he met, and in 1947, married Vera L. Dabney. From this marriage, three daughters were born: Marsha, Lucinda (Cindy), and Karen. The family lived in Newcastle and Casper before he and Vera moved to Laramie where he graduated from the University of Wyoming in 1970 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. They then moved to Cheyenne to continue his career with the Wyoming Highway Department; and after 39 years of service, he retired in 1988.
He especially enjoyed spending time with family hiking, fishing, and snowmobiling at the cabin in the Big Horns. In retirement, you could find him on the golf course in the summer, and in the winter he and Vera traveled extensively, spending many winters in Tucson.
He was a life-long member of Newcastle Masonic Lodge #13, Sheridan Scottish Rite (receiving an Honorary 33rd Degree), Kalif Shrine of Sheridan, and Korein Shrine of Cheyenne (Frontiersmen’s Group). He volunteered for Meals on Wheels as a driver and as a repairman of machines to resell at their Thrift Store for over 35 years.
He is survived by a brother, Russell (Joyce) of Buffalo, and two daughters, Marsha (Jim) Milek and Karen Kastner of Casper; five grandchildren, Doug (Anna) and Janet (Matt Hahn) Milek, Chris (Natasha) and Rich (Lauren) Kastner, and Mandy (Wes) Roberts; and 12 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife of 59 years, Vera, brother, Ed Huson, and daughter and son-in law Cindy and Don Sutphin, granddaughter, Angie Sutphin, and grandsons Donnie and Jimmy Sutphin, and great-granddaughter, Amelia Roberts.
Services will be at Wiederspahn Radomsky Chapel of the Chimes in Cheyenne, Saturday, April 30, at 10:30 a.m. Cremation has taken place at Bustard Jacoby Funeral Home in Casper. Interment will be in Buffalo at the Willow Grove Cemetery.
