Lonnie “Raymond” Honeycutt

Lonnie “Raymond” Honeycutt, 68, went home to his Heavenly Father on Sunday, October 4, 2015, at his residence after a brief battle with cancer.
He was a native of Hampton, Tenn., and had lived in the Sulphur Springs area for the last 16-1/2 years. He was the son of the late Clifford and Roxie Townsend Honeycutt. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his grandparents who raised him and brothers, Paul Honeycutt and Jobee Stevens.
Raymond had worked at Barnard Roofing in Gray since the business opened in 1986. He retired one month ago. He and Mr. Barnard (Gordan) were more than businessmen, they were friends. They roofed together for more than 30 years. The Barnard family meant so much to Raymond.
He loved being outside, whether working or relaxing on the porch. His dogs, especially Annie Moo, were his pride and joy. Little Annie stayed by his side the entire time he was ill.
Raymond was a very private and quiet man. He was gentle, kind and loved with his whole heart. He would help anyone in need. Raymond put his Faith in Christ in August 2015. There is no doubt that he is sitting with the Lord looking down on everyone he loved.
Raymond leaves behind his love for the last 16-1/2 years, Vickie O’Quinn, whom he always called “Baby,” and his “Lil Bit” that he raised as his own, her whole life, Monica O’Quinn, both of the home; Mandy Stoots, who was like a daughter to him, and her husband Steven; sons, Lonnie Honeycutt and wife Michelle of Johnson City, and Kenneth Honeycutt and wife Kimberly of Elizabethton; daughter, Victoria Grindstaff of Johnson City; step-daughters, Tammy Cooper, Teresa Blaylock and Jeanette Townsend; brothers, A.T. Honeycutt and Dennis Stevens; several grandchildren, step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and his favorite uncle and aunt, Jason “Bud” and Virginia “Jenny” Honeycutt, along with many other aunts, uncles and cousins. He also leaves behind his special friends, David and Sandy Bowser.
It was Raymond’s final wishes to be cremated. The family will receive friends on Friday, October 9, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Snyder’s Memorial Gardens in Gray, Tenn. Friends and family are welcome in the home anytime before the service. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Snyder’s Memorial Gardens to assist them with the service.
Snyder’s Memorial Gardens is serving the Honeycutt family with honor. Online condolences can be made to the family at www.snydersmemorialgardens.com
