LOS ANGELES — Haus Weston, the beefy, baby-faced performer who worked in about 15 gay adult movies from 1999 to 2001, passed away Nov. 6. He was 29.

The announcement was posted by Ace Bannon, webmaster of bodybuilding website Muscleservice.com, who had been contacted by the executor of Weston’s estate.

“[Weston] was in the Philippines and died of a heart attack," Bannon told XBIZ. "Haus and I were close several years ago but had dropped out of contact recently. I’m not sure exactly where he made his home at the time of his death; that’s one of the pieces of information I’m trying to help his family with, so if anyone who was close to him in the past 12 months might be able to help with that, please send an email to webmaster@muscleservice.com."

Weston started his gay adult career after his military career ended. His first movies were with Dink Flamingo’s Active Duty amateur military line. He then moved on to All Worlds Video, where Chi Chi LaRue and Dirk Yates directed him in such hits as “How the West Was Hung,” “Tales From the Foxhole,” “Miss Kitty’s Litter: Days Gone Bi,” “Two Brothers: A Savage Night,” and “Virgin No More.”

LaRue also directed Weston in Rascal Video’s first feature, “Steele Ranger.” Weston did “Sudden Impulse” for Jet Set Productions and his final screen appearance was in Active Duty’s “Basic Duty” in 2001.

According to GayPornTimes blogger J.C. Adams, “Fans tell me he remained active on the escort scene through 2003 or '04. He became known for his muscled physique around this time and was photographed for the 2003 COLT Men and COLT Leather calendars, among others. As it turns out, he also appears in the 2008 COLT Cowboy calendar.”

Adams’ blog also states: “He is the third classic COLT model to leave us in a year, following Kirby Scott on Nov. 3, 2006, and Tom Howard on Feb. 27 of this year.”

On the various forums, fans have nothing but kind remembrances of him.

An anonymous blogger said, “He will truly be missed. He was a great performer and our condolences go out to his family and friends.”

Director Flamingo said. "I'm still in shock over the news. Haus was the star of my very first hardcore video, "Basic Training," in 1999. He was one of the most gentle souls I'd ever met. He was a true country boy at heart, but was very smart. I remember once over dinner just before he went on to work for All Worlds we were talking about the intelligence of some people and Haus looked down at his salad and said, "Most of 'em got about as much sense as that head of lettuce there had before it was chopped up." This was the way he expressed himself, in simple ways. He was bigger than life and that smile of his could melt the coldest of hearts. Haus and I lost contact a couple of years ago and to my knowledge he had quit both porn and escorting. I never heard otherwise. He will be remembered in my company for being the sweet person he was and for helping put Active Duty on the map. They don't make 'em like Haus Weston every day."

Director Drew Warner was a close friend. "Haus was a great performer," he said, "but he was an even more amazing person. I'll be missing him very much."
