William Roy Huson, 58, of Talent, Ore., passed away October 21, 2012. Huey, as he was lovingly known, was born and raised in Medford. His roots are deep in southern Oregon; his grandmother owned Huson's Confectionary on the corner of Main and Oakdale in the 1940s. Huey worked as a cook in a logging camp in Alaska for a short time, and was also a cook for the Moose Lodge. In the '70s he and friends, Mark Sorenson and Virgil Jackson, started Rock-and-Roll Production. They brought big names to the valley, including Blue Oyster Cult and KISS, to name just a few. He worked as a cab driver in the valley for the last 20 years.

Huey enjoyed fishing, cooking, watching the Raiders, and spoiling his wife.

He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Susan, Talent, Ore.; mother, Bettie Huson, of Talent, Ore.; sister, Suzanne Trombino, of Medford; son, Matthew; and daughter, Sara.

He was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Huson.
