'Best of Haus Weston'-DVD-C1RUPDATE: 11/12/07: I’ve confirmed this morning that COD was cardiac arrest. Mr. Weston suffered a heart attack while traveling abroad. I’ll post more details when they become available and can be properly verified. *** It is my sad duty to confirm the passing of gay adult performer Haus Weston. Muscleservice.com webmaster Ace Bannon posted Tuesday, November 6, that Mr. Weston, 29, had died earlier that day; Mr. Bannon had been contacted by the executor of Haus Weston’s estate. No other information is available at the present time. CLICK HERE for more details…

Haus Weston appeared in about ten films that were released in 1999 and 2000 (plus one other), most of them for All Worlds Video. Among his popular titles were STEELE RANGER, HOW THE WEST WAS HUNG, TALES FROM THE FOXHOLE, TWO BROTHERS: A SAVAGE NIGHT and VIRGIN NO MORE. He also made SUDDEN IMPULSE for Jet Set in 1999 and BASIC DUTY for Dink Flamingo‘s Active Duty in 2001.

Fans tell me he remained active on the escort scene through 2003 or ’04. He became known for his muscled physique around this time — earlier promotional photos show a smooth and athletic, if less bulky, physique — and was photo’ed for the 2003 COLT Men and COLT Leather calendars, among others. As it turns out, he also appears in the 2008 COLT Cowboy calendar. (He is the third classic COLT model to leave us in a year, following Kirby Scott on November 3, 2006 and Tom Howard on February 27 of this year.)

On the various forums, fans have nothing but kind remembrances of him. We’ll run details as they become available, but in the meantime our sincere condolences to Haus Weston’s family, friends and fans.

    How sad. I exchanged a few emails with him years ago and he came across as very sharp and a caring individual. We’ve lost too many this year.

  2. Anon on November 11, 2007 5:49 pm

    How did he die?

    Kirby Scott, Tom Howard, Cody Foster (last April), Rocky, Matt Sterling and Andy Dill last December, Kristian Brooks and Brandy Dalton and Sean Masters in summer ’06, Brett Mycles and Lynden Thomas in March this year, and Bryan Kocis murdered barely a year ago. Plus Kent North and Danny Roddick…fifteen in a year and a half? This is too much.

    RIP. He was a handsome guy, good performer.

    Fuck, that sucks to hear about first thing in the morning. RIP. Thanks for informing us. Wish there was more I could do. Shit.

  6. JC Adams on November 12, 2007 1:10 pm

    All — Thank you for the comments. As you can see from my latest update, COD was cardiac arrest.

    I saw this on XBIZ and came over here. What a shock. Thanks for posting the news. I was a big fan of this guy. So sad. My condolences to his family and loved ones.

    I hired him once as an escort, he made feel so special!

  9. Joey, S.F. on November 15, 2007 3:07 pm

    Thanks for updating us about this. Very sad story. I never knew him, but an ex hired him 2-3 times and raved for months about how sweet and lovely he was to meet in person.

  10. Michael on November 16, 2007 2:53 am

    As an Australian fan, I have not seen enough of Haus’s films. But although I was never a fan of Sam Crocket, Haus was unbelievably sexy as his partner in Steele Ranger. I wonder how Sam feels about this news. The stocky big butt, the puppy dog (I do mean this sincerely, he was very handsome in my view) looks, the nice dick, beautiful nuts, sexy half hairy legs. I feel in love (in a porn fan way) with him and will, when I’m ready, seek out more of his stuff. I will miss you Haus – I had no idea what he was like in real life, but based on the net and the few precious things we have of him, he’s going to heaven (too bad Christians). Thanks Haus you sexy beautiful man – may I meet someone like you someday.

  11. DrugsKILL on November 19, 2007 5:23 pm

    Another young, IN SHAPE star dying from cardiac arrest? I hope nobody is foolish enough to think these men are dropping off from “freakish heart defects”? When are fags going to finally wake up and realize we have enough to worry about in life other than drug related deaths? Keep that shit out of yourselves and this wouldn’t be happening!!!

  12. jef on November 20, 2007 3:44 pm

    what a handsome man, he was my favorite actor, that is really sad news. is there anyway we can send a note or message to his family?

  13. Bobbie on November 20, 2007 10:12 pm

    very sad, has anyone actually confirmed this? or is this a rumor? If you wanted to escape the world and the industry, the Phillipines would be a good place to do it.

  14. JC Adams on November 20, 2007 10:54 pm

    Jef — I think Ace Bannon of the MuscleService.com forums might know how (or if) fans could pass along a note of condolence to the family. Log in over there and ask him.

    Bobbie — The executor of Haus Weston’s estate contacted Ace Bannon, and he made the announcement.


  15. Dean on December 8, 2007 8:47 pm

    What a tragic loss. May you rest in peace you beautiful guy.

  16. jose on December 29, 2007 2:41 pm

    I was a client of Haus. I admired him as a porn star and person. He was a very nice guy and loved to please and was very professional. I’m sure he invested wisely,,,RIP, a wonderful man!

  17. cornelius on December 30, 2007 6:04 pm

    I am so shocked and so saddened to hear about Haus Weston’s passing. I first laid eyes on him in 1999 in a Dink Flamingo production, and knew INSTANTLY that he was my fantasy husband. Now I’ve had crushes on porn stars before, but nothing like this. In love with a porn star, pathetic, I thought at the time. But at that late time of night, when almost asleep, I’d dream he was holding me in his arms. As I watched him develop as a performer over the years, his genuine sweetness, sincerity, smarts, and many other great attributes shone through. I also know from a friend that had him as an escort that what I perceived about him was true. He was truly the cream of the crop. Goodbye my dream lover. God Bless, and thanks for the oooh too brief 29 years you graced this planet.

    Worth reposting!

    Another seemingly natural death, no doubt caused by drugs; and the porn companies do NOTHING.

  19. Camus on February 25, 2008 11:36 am

    I really liked Haus Weston, he was hot virile and a REAL man. I will miss him greatly, I am just so upset right now. I saw him in virgin no more and he was good. Sigh. Was he into drugs anyone? It seems odd an in shape guy would die of a heart attack at 29.. Later.

  20. PornFan on February 25, 2008 11:53 am

    It wasn’t drugs (well, like cocaine or meth), but apparently steroids abuse/overuse. Same thing that cut down Brett Mycles a year ago.

  21. Dan on September 26, 2008 3:14 pm

    Just found out about this. Honestly, I knew it was coming. He retired from escort services about 4 years ago due to “health problems.”

    So I doubt it was accident/suicide, steroid abuse, or drugs. He had some illness, whether genetic or acquired.

    It’s a shame.

  22. Bob on February 15, 2009 2:48 pm

    Wow. I know that this is late in the game being 2009 and all, but I just found out that he passed. He used to come into the bar that I worked at in Reseda, California and he was always a very nice man. NEVER once had an attitude that many others with his looks tend to have. He’ll be missed.

  23. Bob on April 11, 2009 2:53 pm

    I knew Haus before and as he was just beginning his work with COLT. He was a considerate, caring, loving man with a level head and a solid outlook. I can only imagine that the drive for physical perfection imposed on him by others resulted in his much too early demise. I remember recounting to him one adventure I was considering and him kindly telling me, “You are much too good for that.” Oh, how I wish I could have dissuaded him as well. I knew him by his real name but didn’t know his family to whom I send much belated condolences.

  24. Martin on August 30, 2009 9:39 am

    I heard about Haus’s passing last year and if it wasn’t for him, I wouldnt be the cocky self-assured confident man i am today. Haus and I met in 2002 and we actually met online and had a few actual dates, our first one was a hookup in which I went an dpicke dhim up and drove back to my place. Lets say those nextb four hours changed my life. Haus was a beautiful caring charismatic man and quite intelligent (despite modeling in a USC Trojans shirt for his website). A GREAT MAN HAS FALLEN, HIS WEARIED AND TIRED BODY HAS BEEN PUT TO REST. FOREVER HAUS!!! RIP

  25. Terri Nichols on March 5, 2011 10:35 pm

    Bobbie, oh how I wish he was hiding out in the Phillipines. Of course than, being his mom, I would have to beat him to a pulp for tricking us!
    Haus (as you know him) was born Todd Edward. All 9 lbs.13ozs of him! He was my first born and my heart. The pain of losing him is still unbareable. I,as well, do not really know what happened in his final moments here on earth. But I do know this. He captured the hearts of all who knew him. There was just something about my Todd that was so endearing. And, Michael, I do have to believe he is in Heaven.
    To you, his friends and acquaintances, on behalf of his family, I thank you for your kind, loving and caring words. And Bob, I am glad you knew him by his real name. He needed that connection. Thank you,”Haus’s” Mom

  26. Terri Nichols on March 5, 2011 10:39 pm

    I welcome any thoughts or comments.

  27. scott on May 1, 2011 7:20 pm

    Terri…I actually went to school with him myself….sorry for ur familys loss..rip todd

  28. Terri Nichols on May 1, 2011 9:58 pm

    Hi Scott, thank you for your thoughtful comment. I like being connected to people who knew Todd. Were you in high school with him? I was in CA. during those years, so if you have any stories to share you can surely e-mail me, if you like. I am sorry you lost a friend.

  29. Dug M on May 15, 2011 9:41 pm

    Aloha Terri,
    Todd was a very special person in my life as well. I first met him in California and later he came out here to Hawaii for a few visits. I have some very sweet photos of Todd walking on the beach of the Big Island of Hawaii as well as a trip we took to the volcano. His smile, his personality, his soul all touched me deeply. In the summer of 2007 I went to Virginia to take care of my mother who was dying from lung cancer, Todd passed two weeks after my mom and the combined effect sent me into a severe 2 year depression. Yes your son was AMAZING. If you would like for me to E-Mail you some of the photos please let me know.

  30. Terri Nichols on May 19, 2011 6:22 pm

    Aloha Dug,
    I am so glad you responded. I like hearing stories of Todd’s life and how he affected the people around him. It sounds like you two had a strong mutual friendship and enjoyed each others company. I can understand how devastated you must have been to lose your mom and your friend at the same time, and I am sorry. But, as you know,even though the pain is always just below the surface, we must return to “the land of the living”; and I am glad you are doing better. So, did you and Todd surf together in Hawaii? Yes Dug, I would so appreciate any pictures you have. That would be awesome!! If you can remember approximate dates, that would be great. Thank you for your kind words about my son. I too think he was pretty AMAZING. I am glad he had a caring friend in you.
    Take care,

  31. Dug Miller on May 20, 2011 2:12 pm

    Hi Terri:
    Yes I will put together a set of photos for you. We mainly went hiking around the island lots of great nature trails here on Hawaii. If you want to contact me directly google or web search the following words: “TIKI ISLAND HAWAII VACATION RENTAL” I rent out my downstairs as a side business when my friends arn’t staying there. Todd stayed there when he visited.
    Unfortunity I crashed my computer this week so it is limping along and I may be changing sytems in the next few days so I may be on or off line depending on how my computer is feeling. Right now all my photo stuff is not functioning but I am toay working on fixing this but it may take a few days to get it going again, so if I don’t respond thru the internet in the near future it is technical difficulties being worked on.

  32. Erica Gabriel on June 14, 2012 5:45 pm

    Its a pleasure to see post from one of Todd G’s family members… I miss him terribly… He was staying with me in NYC for a few months before he passed… He had told me he was going to LA to wrap some things up…. Then nothing…. I got a call a while later because he had put me as his contact person asking if i had heard from him… i looked online and then saw the previous post of his death… i was heart broken and still am… would love to talk to you sometime…xoxox

  33. Jim on July 29, 2012 4:41 pm


    I think it is so cool you are on here. I met Todd in London and as with everyone else he met he made a big impact. I was so sad to hear of his passing and he has been in my thoughts and prayers since. I often checked out your remembrance book down through the years and anniversaries and birthdays and was very moved by all your beautiful messages. He was blessed to have a Mom like you. I did not dare to add my own message on there but now that you have been on here I feel that I can add my thoughts that Todd was one of a kind and is remembered by many. He told me about his home town with humour and was also pretty funny and dismissive of your then president!! All good wishes to you. Jim

  34. Todd Ewards on July 30, 2012 7:05 am

    I guess I have something in common with Haus, his name is Todd Edward Gencel and mine is Todd Andrew Edwards. I guess that help cement my feelings for Haus. I exchanged e-mails with Todd back in 2004. He was a delight to chat with even over the internet. I work with a production company that is thinking of making a film about his life, we have some initial funding. Anyway, he was a remarkable person, though mysterious just after our last e-mail exchange, I wish him peace.

  35. Todd Ewards on July 30, 2012 5:27 pm

    I must say this and it not meant to be disrespectful. But did we miss something, something that Todd never was able to tell us? You don’t grow up as a young boy thinking – “I want to be a gay porn model”. He seems to come from a loving family but at the same time his work caused embarrassment and shame. Knowing how sensitive Todd was, this must have been a double edged sword, for him. I think he might have suffered more in his head then when he had the fatal heart attack. Still, he truly was a peaceful and loving man, and I for one am glad to have been a small part of his grace. When researching his life … there seems to be more questions then answers but I know he is in a loving and finally a peaceful place, laughing and joking like he always did.

  36. Todd Ewards on July 30, 2012 6:32 pm

    Erica, I hate to bother you, but after reading, your entry, things are just not falling in place. The webmaster of his internet site was asked by the Executor of Todd’s will to notify fans and get them to provide information on his where about over the last few months. Here he was with you for a while and when he went to Los Angeles he stay in Pasadena. Next thing you know he is in Angeles City? Something is very weird here.

  37. Scott on February 10, 2013 7:33 pm

    Terri, I lived in Federalsburg and Todd was a great person. No matter what and how this all went down, Todd was a great person. He still lives on as a good friend of mine growing up! Hope ur well.

  38. Anonymous on February 23, 2013 5:08 pm

    Well what can I say? Todd was a nice person when he wanted to be but he had a split personality. His kindness was mostly an act towards anyone he could use for personal or financial gain. Todd felt that life was useless, a punishment made to live, with no meaning. This started with a dysfunctional family life and having his parents split when he was young. He felt anger and resentment at the world and only got worse as he got older. These were his words to me exactly “people should not have kids unless they are capable of supporting them their entire lives.” He wanted a free ride in life, always took the easy road, conveniently got himself discharged from the military because it was “too much trouble.” He felt that everyone in the world was a loser and that every place was a dump. Nothing was ever good enough for Todd. He despised the world, everything, and everyone in it. He got involved in the adult entertainment industry for easy money with plans to use it towards something else. He struggled with his sexuality because he was attracted to all THREE sexes, he tried hard to keep each one from finding out about his escapades with other sexes but he was not very good at hiding it. He became ill and blamed everyone but himself. His hate for the world got worse with alcohol, steroid use, and other recreational activities. He used the money that he milked out of friends, family, clients, and anyone he could and put it towards real estate in various states. He lost everything during the housing bubble and at the end he resorted to “staying” with whoever would have him. He was homeless, broke, and had burned every bridge. He used the last of his money on a ticket to Thailand (land of forbidden everything) and literally “partied” himself to death. Which is exactly the way he told me years ago that he wanted to go out. I mean no disrespect to him or his family. He was a good person deep down but struggled with finding a place in the world. I tried many times to help him and remind him that life is a gift and there are so many things to be thankful for, but he did not want help, only financial help. I am sure that most of the nice comments about how kind he was are from people who helped him financially. I am very sorry to the family for their loss.

  39. Ken on March 4, 2013 12:01 am

    I’m not sure what I can add after the last entry, except that I truly hope Todd is in a better place and is at peace. I’ll probably get skewered for saying this on this website, but just goes to show that porn is not glamorous. Too many lives of men and women have ended early as a result of this profession. From what I have read about Todd, he appeared to have been a genuinely caring individual, both to family and friends & to those who knew him professionally. My condolences to his family (esp. Mrs Nichols) and to his real friends.

  40. donny on December 11, 2014 1:39 am

    I feel so bad, I never have seen or heard of him for 7+ years. I thought he went to live LIFE in full happiness and steer away from porn. This career makes people men and women die too soon! God Bless You Haus Weston! R.I.P. You are Free now, fly Angel!

  41. Dale on December 27, 2014 10:48 pm


    I do not know if the person who posted on Feb 23rd actually did have the ‘inside’ scoop on who your son “really” was, but also want to share my condolences on you and your family’s loss. I never knew your son or chatted with him online, but he did appear to be as kind, caring, gentle and friendly as most folks here have posted and that came through in his work enough to have a very strong impact on me and eventually my life. I have never told anyone this ever, but I did actually write a letter to him once, but embarrassed, I never sent it to him. I very much wanted to meet him, but did not really have the money to hire him as an escort and if I did I would have felt bad about him “having” to be physical with him because I paid him. I had and still have self image/esteem issues (I was very overweight then and severely depressed) and for whatever reason at a time when I was very desperate and feeling incredibly alone and unloved I wrote to him and told him how special he seemed to be and how enamored I was with his beautiful spirit not just his beautiful body. Somehow, in some way your son inspired me to believe that there are loving, kind, generous hearts and people out there and somehow that came though in his on screen work and in the articles I read about him. I guess it’s totally crazy to think of an adult star this way, but the truth of the matter is Terri your son inspired me to ‘live’ and ‘get better’ and to hope that I would meet someone who would make me feel special; someone incredible like your son. Over the next several years I lost 135lbs, began a career in computer science (where I am still employed as a Sr Manager now making a great salary) and bought a 100 year old home and began restoring it. It was then, for some reason I thought of the letter I had written to your son and went back to it to finish it up with the “Cinderella” ending (minus the Prince Charming, as I still have not met someone to go though life with). I now made good money and had decided I would set up an escort date with your son, print out the letter I wrote and share it with him in person. Unfortunately, this was early 2008. When I went online to try and find out how to contact him I found this page saying he had died. I was crushed. To this day 7 years later I continue to be deeply saddened by the loss of his beautiful soul on our Earth. I have come here to read what folks have to say a couple times over the years or watched one of his movies to remember him. I guess today I was just feeling a bit of that old depression and hopelessness and I ended up here reading these posts. Terri I never knew Todd Edward Gencel, but I can tell you if there is a heaven he is there. He is there if for no other reason because he touched so many people’s hearts with his kind, loving spirit. I was one of those people even though he never knew me, because in some very important ways Todd saved my life. I never got to tell him this, but I want you to know. I know there will be people who see this post and think I am crazy, lame or stupid, because I feel this way about an adult actor I never met, but I just really do not care. I should have emailed and met your son all those years ago and told him how he helped me and I will always regret not doing so before he passed. Hopefully sharing this with you Terri will in some way help you be at peace and in some way pay back Todd for what he unknowingly did for me. Terri, as long as I am alive happy, healthy and prosperous a part of your son’s pure, sincere spirit lives on, because I am ‘living’ now because of him and for both of us…

    I am sorry it took me so long to speak and God bless you and your family and Todd, where ever you are, “Thank you”.

  42. JC Adams on December 28, 2014 9:21 am

    @Dale — Thank you for sharing your story. Much appreciated. (And please take the negative comments with a grain of salt.)


  43. Rick on May 5, 2015 2:28 am

    Wow, I didn’t know he passed. So sorry and condolences to his family. A very sad story indeed.
