Wayne was born January 10, 1952 in Harrison, Arkansas, to Doyle Dean Honeycutt and Jerry Babe Moss Honeycutt. He was born with cerebral palsy and was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He grew up in Cabool, Missouri, and moved to Kansas City, Missouri, in 1986. In 1987 he was involved in an automobile accident and became a resident of White Oak Manor Care Facility (now Maple Wood) where he remained until his passing.
Wayne loved music, the game of pool, pinball machines and spinning tops. He loved to learn and especially learning about numbers. He received his GED and took college accounting classes while a resident of White Oak Manor. He was a loving son, brother and uncle to many nieces and nephews and a friend to many. They will miss his quick wit and ability to laugh at everything and keep them laughing. He was a special person, smart and a great hugger. Wayne had a challenging life but he never complained. We should all be more like him. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Wayne did not have many possessions, however he always wanted to give to others. As a child he was a patient at Shriners Hospital, and his family would like to honor him by donations going to Shriners Hospital in his name.
