Rick grew up in Cranford, New Jersey, and joined the USAF when he was 19 years old. He enjoyed the field of Aircraft Maintenance and was proud to serve his country. He was stationed in and deployed to many places around the world throughout his military career. His last battle was a personal one, with multiple myeloma, which he fought with the courage and determination that underlined his life. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
Funeral services will be at Arlington National Cemetery on December 10, 2002, at 1:00 p.m. EST. Friends and colleagues are welcome to attend.
In lieu of flowers, Rick's family requests
that you consider a donation to help find a cure for multiple myeloma.
Send donations in honor of CMS Rick Honeywell to the International Myeloma
Foundation, 2129 Stanely Hills Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90046.
Several local Friends traveled to Arlington National Cemetery on December 10, 2002, to attend a service and burial for Rick Honeywell, husband of former attender Chris (Bower) Honeywell. Rick died on November 4 following eight months of illness in Texas.
Chris and Rick are both members at Lubbock
Meeting. We joined Friends from South Carolina and many family, friends
and fellow Air Force service people for a very meaningful ceremony. Rick
was honored by a full military honors service, complete with an honor guard,
grey horses drawing his casket to the burial site, a gun salute, taps,
and a rich Quaker silence. Condolence notes to Chris and her children,
Megan and Daniel, can be sent to her parents at Chris Honeywell c/o Bowers,
2576 Cape Horn Road, Red Lion, Pennsylvania 17356.
We'd add to that, "Husband, Daddy, and the warmest man you'd ever hope to meet. Sorely missed."
