Mr. Billy Sunday Honaker, Jr., known as “Superstar” age 52, of Lebanon, Virginia, passed away Wednesday (September 25, 2019) in an Indianapolis hospital, surrounded by his family and extended Indiana family. Born October 7, 1966 in Elkton, Maryland, he was a son of the late Billy Sunday Honaker, Sr. and Margie Yates Honaker. He was a lifelong resident of the southwest Virginia area and was of the Baptist faith. A disabled coal miner, he enjoyed working with his horses, barrel racing, watching football (especially the Raiders) and hunting, but most of all spending time with his family. During his sickness, he was given the gift of life as an organ recipient. His death provided an opportunity for him to be the organ donor and give others the gift of life.
