Kind and Loving Memories Linde Nassar
I am so sad that I didn't get a opportunity to say Goodbye I know your happy because your back with Aunt Ruby again. "I Will Miss you, Uncle Alton".
The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Alton Honeycutt, Jr. our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Alton. And to Alton it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Korean War while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. Alton, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Alton's family and loved ones.

My dad shared a room with Mr. Honeycutt at the nursing home. Although I only knew him during this short period of time, I really enjoyed and looked forward to visiting with him and dad. May he truly be at peace.
