Joseph “Kenny” Huneycutt, 50, of Avon, was born in Durham, N.C. He was raised and educated in Reno, Nev.
Ken enjoyed life in the Vail Valley for 15 years and then spent 10 years in Kauai, Hawaii, where he met and married his wife, Terry. Ken and Terry also lived in Steamboat Springs for two years before returning home to the mountains of Vail. He achieved great success in real estate sales with Marriott and Starwood Vacation Ownership.
He is survived by his loving wife, Terry; father, Dr. Harry C. Huneycutt, and wife, Rita; mother, Christi Huneycutt; sister, Sherry Huebner; brother, David Huneycutt and wife, Anella; stepsisters, Alyson and Carrie Huneycutt, Kimberly Luikart and husband, Bill; uncle, Glenn Teasley, and wife, Marilyn, and daughter, Nancy Kim; nieces, Marissa and Erika Huebner and Lauren Huneycutt; and nephew, Jake Huneycutt.
In addition to his love for family and friends, Ken loved the great outdoors, snow skiing, water skiing, hiking, mountain biking and his adoring pets.
A memorial service was held Friday at the Vail Interfaith Chapel.
In lieu of flowers, Ken would have preferred donations to Vail Nature Center (841 Vail Valley Drive, Vail, CO 81657) to care for the mountains he loved so much.
