OBITUARY: Hazel ‘Carolyn’ Jean ‘Kluttz’ Huneycutt


Hazel “Carolyn” Jean “Kluttz” Huneycutt, 83, formally of Castalian Springs, TN went home to be with our Lord on Wednesday, September 13, 2023.

Mrs. Huneycutt was born on January 30, 1940, daughter of the late Robert A. Kluttz and Eula Mae “Starnes” Kluttz and sister of the late Wayne Kluttz and Pauline Kluttz.

Mrs. Huneycutt lost her husband of 56 years Paul “Buck” W. Huneycutt to be with our Lord in 2014. She was deeply loved and adored by her 9 children, Paul Robert Huneycutt (Mary) of China Grove, NC; Bonita Vandall (Jay) of Estero, FL; Kimethy Crick (Larry) of Hendersonville, TN; Troy Scott Huneycutt (Evelyn) of Blairsville, GA; Sonya Stratton (Barry) of Bonita Springs, FL; Carol Janine Thornton (Steve) of Ft. Myers, FL; Mylea Brickhouse of Blairsville, TN; Shawna Thornton (Tim) of Fort Myers, FL; and Audrey Rodriguez (Ray) of Fort Myers, FL. A proud grandmother of 22 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren, all of which were the light of her life.

She lived in Bonita Springs, FL with her husband Buck for 18 years before moving to Castalian Springs, Tennessee where she was among many things a homemaker, an avid gardener, a wonderful cook, a loving mother and grandmother.

She loved spending her days with her puppy “Abbey” and there was rarely a time that Abbey was not observed sitting on her lap. She very religiously watched soap operas, most importantly “The Young and the Restless” and loved spending time with her family. She will be so dearly missed.

Visitation will be held at the Powles Funeral Home at 913 West Main Street, Rockwell, NC on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 at 1:00 PM with the service to follow at 2:00 PM.
