Obituary: Norman S. Honeyman

Dr. Norman S. Honeyman, Ph.D., passed away from a heart attack on Tuesday, Feb. 20.

He was born Jan. 12, 1940 in Brooklyn, New York. He served in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. After his discharge, Norm earned a master’s degree in sociology from Roosevelt University and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from United States International University in San Diego, studying with Viktor Frankel.

Following graduate school, Norm worked for the State of California, opening the first mental health clinic in Truckee. It was there that he met and married fellow psychotherapist, Cheryl Sullivan.

In 1986, Norm and his family moved to Billings, Mont., to join the staff of Rivendell, Inc. as a Clinical Psychologist. He entered private practice in 1988.

Norm was a member of several professional organizations, but was most proud of his active membership in the Alcoholics Anonymous community and grateful for his nearly 14 years sobriety.

He is survived by his wife, Cheryl; son Sam of Billings, Mont.; son John of Osaka, Japan; brother Robert of Deland, Fla.; and niece, Sarah Meyers, nephew, Shane Meyers and brother-in-law Greg Meyers, all of Lander, Wyo.

A memorial service was held on Feb. 23 in Billings, Mont.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Sam Honeyman Scholarship Fund at First Interstate Bank, 730 Main St. Billings MT. 59102
