If you were in a dire emergency in the Jellico area you would likely be relieved to see the smiling face of Wayne Honeycutt, He was chief of the Jellico Fire Department and member of the Jellico Rescue Squad. He had also stepped up and became chief of the South Whitley County Kentucky Volunteer Fire Department.
Honeycutt was also an entertainer. As wrestler Joe Bob Junior he brought much joy to fans across East Tennessee and Southeastern Kentucky. The fan favorite always got a huge reaction from the crowd any time he got in the ring.
On Saturday night Honeycutt passed away leaving a huge void in his community. One glance at his social media showed what a beloved memory of his community he was. It is clear he will leave a huge void in the Jellico and Whitley county emergency services community.
His arrangements will be posted when they become available.
