County Commissioner Greg Hunewill died Monday at Carson Tahoe Hospital, Lyon County Manager Jeff Page has announced.
Page said Hunewill, 61, had been dealing with health issues since January 2019.
Hunewill, from Smith Valley, was elected to the County Commission in 2014 and ran unopposed for reelection in 2018. He served in District 5 (Yerington, Mason Valley and Smith Valley).
He served as a member of the Nevada Association of Counties Board of Directors, and he represented Lyon County at the Mason and Smith Valley Conservation Districts, and the Walker River Irrigation District. Hunewill had also served as a member of Smith Valley Advisory Board prior to being a County Commissioner.
Funeral arrangements and an announcement of services will be issued at a later date.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hunewill family and Commissioner Hunewill’s friends,” Page said. “He will truly be missed. His patience, thoughtfulness and attention to detail will be hard to replace.”
