Mr. James Walter Honeycutt, 86, passed away Tuesday, September 7, 2010 at his home in Mount Pleasant, NC. Mr. Honeycutt was born to Fetzer Alexander and Mamie Parnell Honeycutt of Concord NC on June 11, 1927. He is survived by Pauline Eury Honeycutt, his wife of 61 years and his children James Ronald Honeycutt and his wife Sue of Concord, NC, Kenya Kay Honeycutt of Mount Pleasant, NC, and Marissa Honeycutt Medlin and her husband Kim of Mount Pleasant, NC; sister Mady Benfield and her husband Bob of Concord, NC; sister Betty Almond of Concord, NC; Nancy Honeycutt of Kannapolis, NC; grandson Tony Honeycutt and wife Teresa of Concord, NC; grandson Jimmy Honeycutt of Concord, NC; granddaughter Lisa Hagen and husband Wayne of Concord, NC; Hayley Medlin of Mt.

Visitation will be 10:00 on Friday, September 10, 2010 at Gordon Funeral Home of Mount Pleasant. The funeral service will be held immediately following at 11:00 at Saint James Reformed Church in Mount Pleasant. Mr. Honeycutt joined the US Marines immediately following Japan's attack of Pearl Harbor in 1941, which put him in harm's way for the next four years. He fought and served on South Pacific islands such as Tarawa, Peleliu, Guadalcanal, and Iwo Jima. After the war, James founded Cut-Rite Upholstery in Concord NC. The business was successful for the 40 years that he owned it. He purchased a 100-acre farm which he called home for the rest of his days. He married Pauline Eury, with whom he had two children, Kenya and Marissa. James and Pauline provided love, a good home, and a college education for both of their children. In the 1970s, James' business burned to the ground, but he didn't give up and he rebuilt it better than it was before. James and Pauline loved to travel and they enjoyed vacations to many parts of the country. The dictionary defines a hero as one who is "admired for his achievements and noble qualities and one that shows great courage". By that definition, Mr. Honeycutt ranks up there with the best of them. James Honeycutt was an honorable man with a big heart. Everyone who knew him will miss him.
