Daniel Eugene Honeycutt, known to many as "Dan", passed away on May 22, 2024, in Southaven, MS, surrounded by his loving family after a lengthy illness. He was born on May 18, 1933, in Jasper, AL, to his parents William Howard and Christina Ruth (Johnston) Honeycutt.

Dan led a remarkable life filled with diverse experiences and profound connections. He dedicated 22 years of his life to serving the United States Army, being deployed to Vietnam twice and stationed in Zweibrucken, Germany for several years before retiring. His military service was one of his proudest accomplishments, a chapter in his life that he cherished deeply.

Outside of his military career, Dan worked for the United States Post Office where he touched the lives of many through his hard work and dedication. Those who knew him will always remember his friendly nature and outgoing personality. He was well-liked by all, known for being very amiable and military-focused. Dan enjoyed sharing stories about his time in the military and was always eager to engage in conversation.

In addition to his professional endeavors, Dan had a multitude of hobbies and interests that brought him joy. He had a talent for finding and repairing mantle clocks, a passion that allowed him to showcase his skillful craftsmanship. His ability to walk on his hands was a unique trait that never failed to bring smiles to those around him.

Among his cherished memories are the sound of his whistle calling the kids home and the confirmation received by Cindy that he was saved. These moments capture the essence of Dan's character - loving, caring, and always there for his family.

Dan leaves behind a legacy that will be carried on by those he held dear. He is survived by his sons Eugene Honeycutt (Cindy), Keith Honeycutt (Janet), Cindy Appel; grandchildren Brooke Hale (Alex), Christy Brockman (Jay), Rachel Turner (Craig), Terri Yendrek; Timothy Honeycutt, Angela Bell; great-grandchildren Jilian, Rosemary, Barrett, Taylor, Houston, Hunter, Hayley, Cody, Bryce, Hayden, and Gene.

In addition to his parents, Dan is preceded in death by his son Dale Honeycutt, daughters Gay Honeycutt and Feelizitas Matthilda Honeycutt, granddaughter Maggie Bell, and grandson Richard Honeycutt.

In eternal peace now rest Daniel Eugene Honeycutt. His presence will be deeply missed but never forgotten as his spirit lives on through the memories he created and the love he shared with all those fortunate enough to know him.
