Candlelight memorial planned for Bremerton man

A candlelight vigil will be at Evergreen Park in Bremerton Sat., Sept. 7, beginning at 8 p.m. for John Harold Huntwork, 20, of Bremerton who died July 27.

His body was pulled from Dye’s Inlet on Aug. 28, a month after he went missing on July 27.

The cause and manor of death are pending toxicology results, said Kitsap County Coroner Greg Sandstrom.

“I don’t think there’s anything suspicious at this time,” Sandstrom, noting that there doesn’t appear to be any signs of foul play.

Huntwork was born in Bremerton on July 21, 1993. His parents are John Kevin and Donna Huntwork.

According to his mother, John enjoyed playing games with his friends, collecting rocks and helping others.

“John did not plan to change the world,” she said, “but made it a priority to help those around him with whatever assistance he could offer.”

She said he will be dearly missed by friends, family, grandparents, parents and his sisters Amber, Carisa, Davina and Serenity.

The public is welcome to the candlelight memorial. In lieu of flowers, Huntwork’s mother said “please spend the time and money on your friends and family.
