RICHARD HUNTOON Obituary
RICHARD HUNTOON Richard "Rick" Huntoon, 80, a resident of Las Vegas, left this Earth Aug. 13, 2014. He had a good life, born Nov. 12, 1933, he was raised in Long Beach, Calif. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War and was honorably discharged as a staff sergeant. Rick decided to try broadcasting, so he attended the broadcasting school using his G.I. Bill. Graduating with a first class F.C.C. license paved the way for Richard to work at am and fm radio stations, where he worked as a broadcaster. After 15 years in the broadcasting field, Rick elected to change careers and went to work as a slot supervisor. He worked in gaming at the Flamingo Hotel until he retired in 1999. Richard is survived by his wife, Barbara; three sons, Eric, Kurt and Kris; six grandchildren, Michael, Corey, Cameron, Kelsey, Cailey and Ebony; and two great-grandchildren, Savannah and Brooklyn. Rick always said, "It was a good life." Richard will be laid to rest privately at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive in Boulder City.
