Homer graduated from Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, New Mexico, with a Major in Industrial Arts and a Minor in religion.

At the time of his death, Homer was writing a book on the Holy Spirit and his wish to complete it will remain unfinished.
Homer served his country for two years in the Army and was stationed in Germany from 1951 to December 1953. Homer served as the unit Auto Mechanic and was responsible for maintaining the mobile fleet and equipment that was used. While in Germany, Homer's mother was baptized. Seeing the importance of this, he choose to follow Christ and was baptized as well.
After teaching, Homer made a career change and began farming which included raising leaf cutter bees and ostriches with his son Matthew. He continued farming until he retired at the age of 85.
Homer was a humble and compassionate man whose main goal in life was to lead others to Christ. He served as an Elder at both the Caldwell and Parma Church of Christ. His life will be remembered by many as one that exemplified Christ. Homer knew no strangers and was always willing to help and support those in need regardless of their situation.
The family would like to thank the staff at Heart ‘n Home Hospice of Caldwell, Idaho for their compassionate care and love that they gave to Homer during his last week. We shared tears and hugs the day he passed and will forever be grateful for their assistance during our time of need.
