    It is hard for me to put into words how I felt towards Homer. But when I heard the words he passed I thought I had lost a son. Every year I could not wait to spend time with him while getting ready for deer season. Homer would always ask how old I was and how lucky I was to still be able to hunt. I never told him he was one of the reasons I still tired to hunt along with Michael Jr., Jeff, Randi, and Bailey. He will be missed every tine I think of hunting or fishing. I will remember him for the way he treated my family and everyone else. My prayers are now with Missy and the rest of his family. Thank you for sharing him with us. I will never forget the memories Homer has given me and my family over the years. He will be greatly missed.

    Uncle Homer was one of the best uncles a girl could ask for. I remember many times being at the hunting camp as a child with the family and loud, funny uncle Homer being the life of the party.
    One time I remember us kids kept begging him and our paw for some coffee so what did they do, gave it to us straight and black. We would hold it in our mouths and run behind the camper and spit it out and come back for more.
    We love you uncle Homer and you will be greatly missed
    Tishaboo, bud and mason,

    Besides him being such a sweet lovable man, one of the sweetest things is how he always kept candy in his front pockets for all the kids around and they loved that so much! Those babies sure loved him!

    I knew Homer all my life growing up. He was a great man. He would help anyone and had a kind heart. I can remember the jokes him and my brother used to do to eachother like laxatives in brownies ehile welding down i side a ship at the ship yard. Man was that funny. Homer took everything in stride. He loved his family and his kids very much and he worked hard for them. He was a hardworking man, a very loving man and will be missed. He could catch fish or kill a deer when noone else could and failed. He knew the woods and creeks very well and he could tell you history on each of them. Homer was very proud of his family and they meant the world to him. He helped me and my family when we had noone else and had a smile on his face. Even through sickness he had a smile. Homer you will be missed and foever loved and in my heart. Mat God bless your family. Be sure to say hello to my dad and brother and show them the secret fishing spots.

    I remember he took my son fishing for the first time and caught a fish. Tylet remembers a race track he bought him after Ike and he stayed with us a week they played every day. I love this brother of mine he prayed so hard when I was sick and made me laugh so hard. He always had a smile and he told me when you have grandbabies there nothing like it and that is so true. Have fun in Heaven till we meet again.??

    Homer was a dear friend growing up in Warren. We ran together all through our school years hunting, fishing, swimming, and working. We rode our dirt bikes all over the woods of Tyler county and worked our butts off in the hay fields. I know we always had fun whatever we did together. I am praying for your family as I know he will be greatly missed. Rest in peace my friend.
