HOUSTON – A highly revered pastor and staple in the Houston community was killed during a possible road-rage incident on the Gulf Freeway Friday afternoon.

According to those who knew him, Reverend Dr. Ronald K. Mouton Sr. of the East Bethel Missionary Baptist Church was shot and killed by another driver as he traveled on the feeder road around 4:19 p.m.

Loved ones shared an outpour of grief on social media in reaction to Mouton’s death after church staffers announced it on Facebook Live Sunday morning.

New York Pastor Quinton Chad Foster offered condolences on Facebook, saying in part, “Pastor Ronald Mouton had his daddy’s grace, humility, and integrity. He had a heart for people and a passion for preaching. Just being in his presence, you knew he came from great stock! Pastor Ronald Mouton was a great pastor, preacher, and singer. He had it all when it came to the pulpit.”

Pastor Mouton was the pastor of his church for the past 30 years, according to their website. Mouton graduated from Ross Shaw Sterling High School in 1981 with honors before attending Baylor University and Stephen F. Austin State University.

Mouton leaves behind his wife of nearly 40 years, Suzanne Pollard-Mouton, four children 10 grandchildren, a twin brother along with other siblings, and his church community.

Former Houston city council member Dwight A. Boykins also asked for prayers on behalf of the Mouton family via social media Sunday.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee offered her condolences on the loss of Mouton who she described as a friend.
