Kenneth Richard Hunt


Kenneth Richard Hunt, known by his friends as Rick, passed away at the age of 64 on January 20, 2020 at his home.

 

Rick was born on February 23, 1955 in Independence to Kenneth L and Louis Nadine (Muller) Hunt. He attended Independence schools and graduated from Independence High School. After high school, he joined the work force first starting at Parmac, some time in the oil fields, Aptus, and then retiring from the refinery after being injured in an accident with Anhydrous Ammonia in 2001. Rick married Kay Voelzke and the couple was blessed with three sons before divorcing. He then married Teresa Isnard and they shared 20 years together before divorcing. Rick loved the outdoors, he loved just being outside whether it be fishing, hunting, or working on something with his Kubota tractor as he couldn’t get enough of what nature offered. He even had his trail cams live streaming to his computer monitor so when he was inside the outdoors were still with him. Rick was what one might call an inventor. After his accident, he wasn’t able to bend down to pet his dog Jack so he “invented” or rigged up the Jack Scratcher: a small garden rake attached with duct tape to a piece of PVC pipe. Rick was the friend everybody needed. He went out of his way to make his home a place people could come and enjoy their time. He kept his pond stocked but rarely fished his own fish so his friends and family could. Rick was extremely proud of his sons and loved spending time with his family.

 

Rick’s memories will live on with his sons: Jason Hunt and his wife Toby, Corey Hunt and his wife Gina, and Bobby Hunt and his significant other Erica Schultz, father Kenneth L Hunt, brothers: Terry Hunt and his wife Sue and Mike Hunt, sister Tammy Hunt, grandchildren: Ian Loomis and Joshua Knisley and his fiancé Tanner Addington and great-grandson Traven Knisley.

 

He was preceded in death by his mother Nadine Hunt.

 

Honoring Rick’s wishes, cremation will take place under the direction of Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel and the family will hold a private gathering of friends and family to share memories and tell a few fishing stories at a later date. The family suggests memorials be made payable to the Elk City State Park Rick Hunt Memorial and they may be sent in care of Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel, 2405 Woodland Ave. Coffeyville, KS 67337.

Seth Alan Eytcheson


Seth Alan Eytcheson, age 25.  To most he was known as “Big Hoss”, but he had a few more names….to grandpa, he was Sethy Lou, to his uncle, he was Pugsley and many friends refer to him as a brother.  He was a much loved son and brother; to Nicholas he was “Bro”, to Noah he was “Paffy” because he couldn’t pronounce Sethy and forever and always he will be his momma’s “Moose”.  Seth went to be with his grandpa, “Paw Paw” Gene and with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 5:08 a.m. at St. Johns Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

 

Seth was born on July 17, 1994 in Independence, Kansas to Darryl Eytcheson and Carol (Runyon) Conley.  He grew up in Caney, Kansas where he attended grade school.  When he was in the 7th grade he moved to Coffeyville, Kansas.  In no time at all he became everyone’s friend. Seth had the ability to make everyone around him happy; he could fill a room with laughter. Seth found a family of friends within the Coffeyville FFA and the Auto Mechanics classes during his time at FKHS.  He graduated Field Kindley High School in 2013. 

Seth was a dedicated and hard worker.  He started working for Braums when he was only 14 years old.  He worked there for a year and a half.  During high school he worked for the South Coffeyville Stockyards.  Other places that he worked were Spears, Acme, Montgomery County Jail and he was currently working at Textron Cessna since last July. 

 

Seth was a collector, and it depended on who you asked if it was “trash” or “treasure”.  At the age of 4 he was fixing broken things without any help.  He had this gift of tinkering around with things and making them work again.  Some of those things were dirt bikes and 3-wheelers.  He learned a lot from his Paw Paw. They spent countless hours fiddling and tinkering with things in the garage and he just soaked in everything he possibly could learn from him and through that formed an unbreakable bond. 

 

It was 6 months ago that he had a life changing event.  He went on a blind date with Christy Ryburn.  Seth was a very simple guy, so the last few hours of that date were spent laying in the bed of his truck looking at the stars with the most amazing woman by his side.  He was bit by the love bug, because when you know, you just know and he had received his “Blessing”. By November the two were talking marriage and he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.  Their time got cut way too short.  He is now one of those bright stars, shining bright, so she can look up and know he’s still with her every day. 

 

Seth recently shared a post with others that reads: “…I made it through to fight another day all I gotta say is if I can make it through this twice any one can make it through anything.”  Seth was the kind of person who always thought of others.  He was kind, caring, helpful and giving, never expecting or needing anything in return.  Everyone knew he was the one you could call on, the one you could trust, that no matter what he would drop everything to be there for someone.  Seth impacted so many lives. All the people who had the gift of knowing him, knew their life was better for having him in it. 

 

Seth always had his can of Copenhagen, loved his sweet tea, loved food, but hated 3 things: black licorice, green jello salad and asparagus.   He loved the Fast and Furious movies and Paul Walker with a passion.  He loved playing video games like GTA, CoD, and Forza.  In true Seth fashion, his gamer tag was “Big Country”.  He loved cars, he was in the middle of fixing his Paw Paw’s truck, it is a tan 1990 Ford F150.  In his honor, those that were helping him are going to finish fixing it in his honor.  He always wanted his baby brother to have it. 

Seth made all those around him happy.  He leaves behind his momma, Carol Conley and his step father, Stephen Conley who he was very close with; his father, Darryl Eytcheson or “Old Man” as Seth called him and step mother Monya Eytcheson; big brother and protector, Nicholas Eytcheson and wife, Rachel; baby brother, Noah Eytcheson; sister, Ariesse Conley; loving fiancé, Christy Ryburn and her daughter, Mikayla Hasting that he formed a special bond with right away; special nieces, Alexiah, Madi and Kimber Eytcheson; maternal grandmother, Martha Runyon; paternal grandfather and step grandmother, David and Linda Eytcheson; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and other extended family and many friends.

 

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, “Paw Paw” Gene Runyon; paternal grandmother, Judy Hardeman. 

 

Graveside Services will be held on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at the Veterans Patio at Fairview Cemetery in Coffeyville, Kansas.  Pastor Mark Wilson with the First Church of God will officiate.  Burial will follow in Restlawn Cemetery. 

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 17, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at David W Barnes Funeral Home in Coffeyville.  The family will greet friends on Friday evening at the funeral home from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

 

The family suggests memorial contributions can be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.  These may be left with David W Barnes funeral home

or mailed in care of David W Barnes Funeral Home 306 N Cline Rd, Coffeyville, KS 67337.

Rickie Dean Pippin


Rickie Dean Pippin age 75 of Collinsville, OK, formerly of Coffeyville, KS, passed away December 25th in his home surrounded by his loved ones.

 

Rick was born on December 4, 1944, in Cherryvale, KS, to Virgil and Neleta (Johnson) Pippin.  The family relocated to Coffeyville where he graduated from Field Kindley High School. In 1962, while working in Redfern’s grocery store, he met the love of his life Linda Cochran. On June 11, 1965, the couple was united in marriage. To this union they were blessed with three children.

 

Rick’s love for his family was the very foundation of his being; he was a truly devoted husband, a very loving and involved father, and an outgoing, fun, and incredibly proud papa.

 

Rick developed a life-long love for baseball at a young age. He started playing little league and went all the way to the semi-pro league. He also coached little league for a number of years.  He enjoyed watching KU basketball, Cardinals baseball, trips to Branson and Silver Dollar City, crappie fishing at the pond, and all the activities his grandchildren were involved in. Rick was a simple man. He found the greatest joy in the simple things and he didn’t want for anything “fancy”. He enjoyed conversation (he talked a lot); he didn’t need to know someone long before he considered them a friend.

 

 Rick was a Coffeyville fireman for 12 years and also worked at Coffeyville Re-Con. He went on to retire from John Deere in 2009.

 

Rick’s memories will live on with his wife of 54 years, Linda, daughters; Kristie Pippin and Debbie Dashney her husband Chris, son Rick Pippin and his wife Kristin, grandchildren; Tyler Pippin his fiance Megan Lee, Chase and Rose Mills, Taylor Dashney, Nolan Dashney, Faith Pippin, Wyatt Pippin and the seventh grandchild (baby girl) coming soon, sisters; Brenda Bigbie, Cheryl Griffin her husband Mike, Donna Palmer her husband Roger, Teresa Bonham her husband George, brothers; Gary Pippin his wife Judy, Jimmie Pippin his wife Niawana, and many nieces and nephews. He now rests in peace with his parents.

 

 Friends are invited to join the family for a celebration of Rick’s life on January 11 from 1-4pm at the Yoke banquet room in downtown Coffeyville. The family suggests memorials be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and they may be sent in care of Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel 2405 Woodland Ave Coffeyville, KS 67337.
