Neal Joseph Honeycutt, age 42, passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family and great music on Friday, July 15, 2022 at Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD following a hard-fought battle with Muscular Dystrophy. A celebration of Neal’s life will be held on Friday, July 22, 2022 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Tracy Eagles Club. George Boom Funeral Home & On-Site Crematory in Sioux Falls has been entrusted with arrangements. Please go to www.georgeboom.com to sign his guestbook.
Neal was born on May 3, 1980 in Colorado Springs, CO to Toney and Kathy (Johnson) Honeycutt.
Neal will be remembered fondly for his love of all thing’s beer related. Good friends, good laughs, good stories, good food, good fishing, good pull-tabs and good conversations. His inner strength and pride made Neal the man we all wish to aspire to be. Neal never made excuses for his health conditions, and in the face of insurmountable odds, never complained or let them slow him down from “Living the Dream.”
Neal lived his life to the fullest and on his own terms. He enjoyed fishing, playing video games, watching horror movies, starburst candies and above all, being the best son, big-brother to his four sisters, and giving “bear hugs” to his nieces, nephews and aunts and uncles. His incredible wit, sarcasm and sense of humor will be missed greatly, but nothing more than his big hugs and him lovingly giving you his middle finger.
Neal may be on to another great adventure but leaves behind to keep “Living the Dream” in his honor are his mother, Kathy Honeycutt of Tracy, MN; his father, Toney and his wife, Steph of Nicollet, MN; his four favorite ladies “sisters” Melissa (Justin) Wakefield, Amanda (Tim Pilaczynski) Sanders, Ashley (Tim Ahlstrand) Honeycutt and Jazlin (Gabe Craig) Honeycutt; his grandmothers, Elfriede Johnson of Slayton, MN and Wanda Honeycutt of Tracy, MN; five nephews, Dayton, Kyle, Sy, Rowan and Caskey; two nieces, Kirabella and Harper; many aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends.
He is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Bob Honeycutt and Bill Johnson (whom Neal is having a grand road-trip and fishing excursions with his grandfathers in Heaven.) We know that Neal will be watching over us from heaven and we will see him again.
