Clint W. Honeycutt, Sr.

March 2, 1950 — April 2, 2024

Prairieville, Louisiana

Clinton Wayne “Clint” Honeycutt, Sr., a resident of Prairieville, Louisiana, passed away on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, at the age of 74. He was born March 2, 1950, in Columbus, Louisiana to Fred and Minnie Honeycutt.

 

Clint is survived by his wife of 13 years, Janice Bartus Honeycutt; his sons, Clinton Honeycutt and wife Shannon, and Noah Honeycutt; his daughter Jennifer Honeycutt; Janice’s daughter, Ashley Seale; their grandchildren Alexis and Darian Montelius, Caitlyn Honeycutt, and Blaze and Londyn Bovia. Clint is also survived by his siblings, Kenneth Honeycutt and Clara Wells; as well as numerous other family and friends.

 

He is preceded in death by his parents; brothers, John and Fred Honeycutt; and sisters Juanita Crocket, Louise Lizenby and Frances Lisotta. 

 

Clint attended many schools throughout Louisiana: Columbia, Tunica and St. Francisville, completing 9th grade at Istrouma High in Baton Rouge. His lack of a high school diploma never stopped him.

 

Clint was never afraid to start a new trade or business. His work ethic led him to several unique jobs as a young adult, including East Louisiana State Hospital in Jackson, and later for a roofing company – little did he know while blowing insulation on a roof at 16, that he would later own that building at the age of 56. What a difference 40 years make!

 

Motorcycles were his passion. With this he owned and operated Honey Cycle, worked for GN Gonzales, and later established the first motocross race in Alexandria. After years of having dirty hands, Clint wanted an office job.  In 1988, he started as a manufacturer’s representative for one of the largest fall protection companies in the world.  His determination to succeed in the Fall Protection and Rescue industry was seen by all, when in 1998, he started his own company, Safety Connection, Inc.

 

Clint was recognized by the Judicial System as an expert witness regarding fall-related injuries. His primary concern was working with the end user to solve fall protection problems across numerous industries.

 

He was a member of ASSE, NATE, IADC Safety Council, ISNetworld, PICS, PEC and Gulf Coast Safety and Training Group. Clint was a voting member of the ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Committee, in which he worked with both ANSI and OSHA to improve fall protection standards.

 

Relatives and friends are invited to attend funeral services at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 5, 2024, at Resthaven Funeral Home, 11817 Jefferson Highway in Baton Rouge.  A visitation will be held at the funeral home beginning at 12:30 p.m.  Interment will follow at Resthaven Gardens of Memory.

 

Clint’s greatest joy was to be a father and his children were always his first priority. His faith, trust and love for the Lord Jesus Christ sustained him as he battled IPF, which resulted in a left lung transplant on December 31, 2018. He had the utmost gratitude for those who donated their organs, so others have a second chance of life, as well as those affected by Lewy Body Dementia, and their families.
