Homer Lee Howe

Homer Lee Howe, 78, of Vidor, left his earthly home, Tuesday, May 22, 2018. He was born on May 24, 1939, to Bertha Jean Howe and Osa Carroll Avant in West Monroe, Louisiana. Homer was a United States Army veteran. He worked in the glass business several years, then as a bus driver for Lamar University. Homer loved listening to country music and going to picture shows. He loved all things John Wayne as well as an avid reader of western novels.

Homer is survived by his wife of fifty-five years, Linda Gail Howe; daughter, Carolyn LeJeune and her husband, Richard; granddaughter, Sierra LeJeune; brother, George Cothran; uncle, Hardie Howe; and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Carolyn Jean Avant and Barbara Cothran.

Homer met the love of his life, Linda, in the early fifties. It sparked a love above imagination. They laughed, loved and grew a bond together that would surpass any great love story. This year they would have celebrated fifty-six years together. Although they would only have one child, they loved all their nieces, nephews, and friends of their daughter, Carolyn, as their own.

Their home was always a house of love, laughter, and music. So many precious fun memories that Homer was a part of. He was involved in the Lion’s Club and served as their president. He loved to drive, and sight see the countryside. He could be content by sitting and people watching for hours. God blessed us with Homer as the best husband, daddy, and Papa. He will be greatly missed and loved.

Homer asked us to let everyone know the following quote. “Don’t cry because it is over, but smile because it happened”

We would like to thank Kindred Hospice for their excellent care they gave during this time. A special thanks to Carmen, Phyllis, April, and Russ. We would also like to thank Christine from Vidor Health and Rehabilitation.

    To the Family:
    My sympathy goes to all of you during this time of grief. Although “time and unforeseen occurrences affect us all, even death, we have Jesus’ promise that our dead ones can live again. Eccl 9:11; John 6:40.
