Robert L. Honeycutt

November 25, 1953 ‒ September 24, 2019

Mansfield, Ohio

Robert Lewis Honeycutt, age 65, peacefully passed away Tuesday evening, September 24, 2019 in his Mansfield home. Known to his friends as “Bob” and to his family as “Rob,” he will be dearly missed.

He was born November 25, 1953 in Mansfield and was the son of James Honeycutt and Emma (Burdine) Hartzell. Rob was a 1972 graduate of Mansfield Senior High.

Bob worked with CarouselWorks in Mansfield—the world’s largest carousel manufacturer—sanding and base painting intricate wooden carousel animals for many years until retiring in 2016.

His favorite pastime was watching sports and he loved cheering for all Ohio sports teams: the Indians, the Browns, the Cavaliers, and especially THE Ohio State University. He will be remembered for his laid back personality. He showed his love and concern for his mom by taking care of her until her passing and his sister Tammy by taking care of her through her battle with cancer. Above all, he was loyal to his family.

Rob is survived by his close sister Tammy Burton of Mansfield; sister-in-law Lisa Honeycutt of Schriever, Louisiana; along with numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

Rob was preceded in death by his mother Emma (Burdine) Hartzell; his father James Honeycutt; his sister Nettie Burdine; and his brother Jim Honeycutt.

Although no public service will be held in Rob’s memory, his family hopes you will remember him in your own special way.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your brother. I got to meet him when taking care of your mom years ago through home health. He was a very nice person. He loved his momma. You will be on my thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself.
