Patrick Aaron Huzinec passed away at his home suddenly in his sleep on the morning of October 26, 2018, his fifty-third birthday. He was born in Red Bank, New Jersey; grew up in Ewing, New Jersey, and graduated from Spring High School in Spring, Texas in 1983. He attended Austin College in Sherman, Texas where he studied Sociology, exceled on the Soccer team and in student politics, was a member and then president of Chi Delta Eta Fraternity, and graduated in the class of 1987. He then attended Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama where he completed the three-year program in two-and-a-half years, graduating in 1989 with a Juris Doctorate. He passed the Bar Exam on his first try in the State of Texas in 1990 at the age of 25. He was a practicing lawyer for 28 years, fighting for the little guy with the vengeance of a pit bull and the kindness of a teddy bear. He was first employed by the Firm of Novelli, Harvey, and Huzinec, where he was named a partner in a very short time and then worked with Robert D. Clements, Jr. & Associates in Brazoria County, where he loved to practice.
He met the love of his life, Libby, 21 years ago and they have been blissfully married for the last 17-and-a-half years. He was her constant companion and was wholly devoted to her and their two Pomeranians, Lili and Rosi. It was a pleasure to see this large man dote on his little furry dogs.
Pat was a genuine, unique, and compelling person, sometimes boisterous, but mostly steady and serene, so that folks were often drawn to him and he brought them much happiness. He had a huge heart and was kind and gentle, often spontaneously helping others who were in need, and was incredibly loyal and always there for his family and friends. He and Libby enjoyed traveling often with family and friends and had just returned from a trip to Cancun with their best friend, Thomas. Pat loved going out and watching sports with Libby. They were both ecstatic last year when the Houston Astros won the World Series. He loved listening to all types of music, but his all-time favorite was Bruce Springsteen. He would sing out loud and off key, but it was so infectious that it would get others to sing along. And as a son to a seashore town, he found great delight in the beach and in the surf, and found pleasure these past two years living in Corpus Christi. While he lived life to its fullest and gave such happy memories to everyone he knew, he left much too soon and will be missed by so many.
As well as being survived by his loving Bride and their two dogs, he is survived by his Parents, Robert and Carol Huzinec of Spring, Texas, his brother Chris Huzinec of Spring, Texas, and his Uncle Nick Huzinec of Norwich, NY, as well as countless loving family members on Libby’s side of the family, including her Father and Step-Mother, Kat and Sonia Coronado, her mother, Maria Coronado, her siblings, Jackie Coronado, Dan Coronado, JC Coronado and Claudia Beaz, their spouses and their children and grandchildren. And he is survived by his Chi Delta Eta Brothers and friends too numerous to list.
